Technical Paper Round-up: June 14

New technical papers added to Semiconductor Engineering’s library this week. [table id=33 /] Semiconductor Engineering is in the process of building this library of research papers. Please send suggestions (via comments section below) for what else you’d like us to incorporate. If you have research papers you are trying to promote, we will review them to see if they are a good fit f... » read more

Quantum: Pairing Cooper Pairs Magnifies The Phase Fluctuations of the Ground State

New technical paper titled "Magnifying Quantum Phase Fluctuations with Cooper-Pair Pairing" from researchers at Université PSL, CNRS, Sorbonne Université, Université Paris-Diderot, Inria de Paris, PSL Research University. Abstract "Remarkably, complex assemblies of superconducting wires, electrodes, and Josephson junctions are compactly described by a handful of collective phase degrees ... » read more

Not All Qubits Are Small

While diamond nitrogen-vacancy centers offer one attractive implementation of quantum qubits, many other systems have been proposed. In theory, at least, any system with clearly identifiable quantum states can serve the purpose. The challenge lies in finding a system in which those states can be manipulated and measured by external forces and can be fabricated in large enough numbers for practi... » read more
