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.

Linking two solar technologies is a win-win for efficiency and stability
Sept. 6, 2023

Solar cells made with crystals called perovskites are one such technology that have rapidly emerged as an appealing, low-cost add-on, but perovskite cells are notoriously susceptible to voltage-induced changes — the shade cast from an overhanging tree branch or nearby plant can zap an entire module within minutes.

Now, researchers…

A new route to a quantum internet
Aug. 30, 2023

While today’s classical data signals can get amplified across a city or an ocean, quantum signals cannot. They must be repeated in intervals — that is, stopped, copied and passed on by specialized machines called quantum repeaters. Many experts believe these quantum repeaters will play a key role in future communication networks, allowing…
