(SpaceNews) Selling satellite capacity to television broadcasters and broadband network operators is no longer sufficient to support growth, according to several Asia-Pacific satellite operators. The increased adoption of high-throughput satellites with large volumes of broadband-optimized capacity mean satellite operators need to add more services to make their products attractive to buyers. Such satellites are driving…..
(Newswire) Researchers at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have received two DOE awards to explore how quantum information can be passed from one quantum device to another. The goal: develop ways to link quantum devices into quantum computing networks that are much more powerful than today’s technology and into innovative photon detectors…..
(Sociable.co) This article explores quantum computing and questions how it might facilitate a more compatible and seamless interface between human and “machine” by exploring exotic materials like those that organic electronics have to offer. Quantum computing may help us probe exotic materials for improved compatibility between our squishy organic brains and electronic chips. If society…..
(NoCamels) Tel Aviv University launched its new Center for Quantum Science and Technology this week, bringing together some 20 research labs from across university faculties that focus on different aspects of the field. The new center will focus on three key aspects, according to the university: study programs in relevant tracks such as quantum computing…..
(Forbes.com) There is much work to be done before a universal fault-tolerant quantum computer is available. The long-term viability of superconducting qubit and trapped ion qubit technology looks good. Author Paul Smith-Goodson delivers an overview of quantum technology and segues into the kinds of quantum technologies currently under development: superconducting qubits, spin qubit & trapped…..
(SecurityBoulevard) The US Federal Government’s focus on the rest of 2019 and looking ahead to 2020 is on taking data-centric approaches to securing our data today more than ever. Security blogger Brent Hansen writes, “We are closer than ever to quantum”. The research, funding, and innovation is happening now! In fact, the U.S. government just…..
(LowellSun) UMass Lowell’s assistant professor Archana Kamal, in the Department of Physics and Applied Physics, has been awarded $1.8 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. Kamal will use the funding to expand her research into the emerging field of quantum information science The first of the two grants, worth $1.5 million, was…..
(ScienceDaily) Understanding how particles behave at the twilight zone between the macro and the quantum world gives us access to fascinating phenomena, interesting from both the fundamental and application-oriented physics perspectives. Recently, researchers at the Center for Theoretical Physics of Complex Systems (PCS), within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, South Korea), in collaboration with…..
(IQT) Lawrence Gasman, founder and President of Inside Quantum Technology, will provide a “Sensor Market Analysis” during his luncheon address October 2 for the QED-C Plenary Meeting at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Day 1 of the QED-C meeting focuses on Quantum Sensors, an arena with one of the principal areas of application for quantum…..
(UCSB) UC Santa Barbara has been named the site of the nation’s first Quantum Foundry. Funded by an initial six-year, $25-million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the project, known officially as the UC Santa Barbara NSF Quantum Foundry, will involve 20 faculty members from the campus’s materials, physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering and computer…..
