Quantum computing engineers are setting a new standard for silicon chip performance

Credit: Unsplash/CC0 public domain Two milliseconds – or two thousandths of a second – is an extraordinarily long time in the world of quantum computing. On these time scales, a blink of an eye – to a 10th of a second – is like an eternity. Now a team of researchers from UNSW Sydney have …

Exploring Ceres in Labs

Scientists identify the source of unexpected geological activity on the planet Ceres

The dwarf planet Ceres is depicted in these false-color renderings, which highlight differences in surface materials. Footage from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft was used to create a spinning movie of Ceres, followed by an overhead view of Occator Crater, home to the brightest area of ​​Ceres. Credit: NASA/JPL Modeling reveals how Ceres fuels unexpected geological activity. …

Exploration of the plasma loading mechanism of radio jets launched from black holes

Credit: Tohoku University Galaxies, including our Milky Way, host supermassive black holes at their centers, and their masses are millions to billions of times larger than the sun. Some supermassive black holes shoot fast streams of plasma that emit powerful radio signals, called radio jets. Radio jets were first discovered in the 1970s. But much …

Princeton scientists overcome key setback in achieving nuclear fusion

A 3D disruption of magnetic fields Scientists traced the collapse to the 3D mess of strong magnetic fields. “We proposed a new way of understanding the [disordered] field lines, which were generally ignored or poorly modeled in previous studies,” said Min-Gu Yoo, postdoctoral researcher at PPPL and lead author of the new study. Magnetic fields …
