Research Bits: Nov. 29


Earth-bound, more accurate GPS A new idea for terrestrial-based global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) that uses very accurate national atomic clocks on the ground may help self-driving cars in urban environments get where they are going. Researchers from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and VSL have prototyped a hybrid optical–wireless mobile netw... » read more

Max Planck Generates Up To 14 Entangled Photons In A Defined Way And With High Efficiency


A new technical paper titled "Efficient generation of entangled multiphoton graph states from a single atom" was published by researchers at Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. The team of physicists "generated up to 14 entangled photons in an optical resonator, which can be prepared into specific quantum physical states in a targeted and very efficient manner. The new method could facil... » read more

Step Towards Quantum Internet: Quantum Teleportation (TU Delft)


New research paper "Qubit teleportation between non-neighbouring nodes in a quantum network" from QuTech and Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. Abstract "Future quantum internet applications will derive their power from the ability to share quantum information across the network. Quantum teleportation allows for the reliable transfer of q... » read more

Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Tools Synopsys introduced Euclide, a next-generation hardware description language (HDL)-aware integrated development environment (IDE). Euclide aims to enable earlier detection of bugs and optimize code for design and verification flows by identifying complex design and testbench compliance checks during SystemVerilog and UVM development. It assists correct-by-construction code development th... » read more

System Bits: March 10


Surviving entanglement breakdown Researchers at MIT have discovered that preserving the fragile quantum property known as entanglement isn’t necessary to reap benefits. By way of background, the MIT team reminded that the promise of quantum information processing, i.e., solving problems that classical computers can’t, as well as perfectly secure communication depends on a phenomenon cal... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: March 25


Making flexible carbon nanotube circuits more reliable and efficient Engineers would love to create flexible electronic devices, such as e-readers that could be folded to fit into a pocket with one such approach involving designing circuits based on electronic fibers known as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) instead of rigid silicon chips -- but reliability is essential. Given that most silicon chip... » read more
