Quantum Computing: New Ion Trap On A Microfabricated Chip (ETH Zurich)

A new technical paper titled "Penning micro-trap for quantum computing" was published by researchers at ETH Zürich, Leibniz Universität Hannover, and Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt. Abstract "Trapped ions in radio-frequency traps are among the leading approaches for realizing quantum computers, because of high-fidelity quantum gates and long coherence times. However, the use of r... » read more

Revealing the Effect of Nanoscopic Design on the Charge Carrier Separation Processes in Semiconductor-Metal Nanoparticle Gel Networks

Abstract: "In this paper, it is shown that the nanoscopic design of combining semiconductors and noble metals has a direct impact on the macroscopic (electrochemical) properties of their assembled, hyperbranched, macroscopic gel networks. Controlled and arbitrary deposition of gold domains on CdSe/CdS nanorods leads to tipped and randomly decorated heteroparticles, respectively. Structur... » read more
