Researchers from Berkeley Lab’s Center for Novel Pathways to Quantum Coherence in Materials are developing new pathways to create and protect quantum coherence. Doing so will enable exquisitely sensitive measurement and information processing devices that function at ambient or even extreme conditions.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have proposed an experiment that may settle the persistent question: Is gravity truly a quantum force?
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have taken the clearest picture yet of electronic particles that make up a mysterious magnetic state called quantum spin liquid. The achievement could facilitate the development of superfast quantum computers and energy-efficient superconductors.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have created a one-atom thin magnet that operates at room temperature. The ultrathin magnet could lead to new applications in computing and electronics, and new tools for the study of quantum physics.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have found a new way to harness properties of lightwaves that can radically increase the amount of data they carry.
A team of researchers at Berkeley Lab used a quantum computer to successfully simulate an aspect of particle collisions that is typically neglected in high-energy physics experiments, such as those that occur at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scientific society, today announced that 489 of its members, among them nine scientists at Berkeley Lab, have been named Fellows. This lifetime honor, which follows a nomination and review process, recognizes scientists, engineers, and innovators for their distinguished achievements in research and other disciplines toward the advancement or applications of science.
Borrowing a page from high-energy physics and astronomy textbooks, a team of physicists and computer scientists at Berkeley Lab has successfully adapted and applied a common error-reduction technique to the field of quantum computing.
In this Q&A, Sinéad Griffin, a staff scientist in Berkeley Lab’s Materials Sciences Division and Molecular Foundry, shares her thoughts on her search for light dark matter, the ultimate materials design challenge, and Berkeley Lab’s collaborative “team science” culture.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab have found a way to generate single, identical photons on demand. The precisely controlled photon source, made from an atomically thin semiconducting material, could aid the development of advanced quantum communication.
