Absolute zero − the most appropriate temperature for both quantum experiments and quantum computing − makes it easier to describe a system by relying on a set of fundamental propositions. One of them, the quantum adiabatic theorem, ensures simpler dynamics of quantum systems if external parameters change smoothly enough.
Chalmers University of Technology researchers found that mixing multiple molecules could result in a new type of glass that has potential applications ranging from medicine, solar cell technology, and advanced digital screens.
A research team developed an extremely sensitive nanopore sensor that particularly identifies COVID-19 viruses and other human adenoviruses in an assortment of samples like a serum, saliva, or environmental specimens like wastewater.
Chalcogenide glasses are widely used in electronics as well as near- and mid-infrared photonics. Electrical engineers found that their use can be extended to visible and ultraviolet applications by changing their physical shape.
