Illuminating errors creates a new paradigm for quantum computing
Oct. 11, 2023

A new design has made error-prone quantum computers up to ten times easier to correct, breaking one of the key log jams in the field. Led by Jeff Thompson, the team demonstrated a way to identify and eliminate errors as they occur in real time, using subtle manipulations of atomic energy levels. This is a new direction for research into quantum computing hardware, which more often seeks to lower the probability of an error occurring in the first place.

Taking aim at food waste, new high-frequency wireless system wins best paper at top mobile conference
Oct. 5, 2023

Researchers from Princeton and Microsoft have developed a technology that scans fruit on a conveyor belt and assesses its ripeness by sensing sugar and dry matter content. It is one of the first systems to use sub-terahertz frequencies for smart-food sensing. It could help reduce billions of dollars in food waste. The research won Best Paper at the 2023 MobiCom conference on mobile computing and networking.
