Flip-Flop Qubit Could Make Silicon the King of Quantum Computing
23 Nov | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"Headline-grabbing quantum computing efforts by Google and IBM have mostly focused on building quantum bits, called qubits, out of loops of superconducting materials. But a recent breakthrough could enable a different technology based on spin-based silicon qubits to eventually dominate the rise of quantum computers." by Jeremy Hsu
Comtest Announces Next Step in Polystyrene Absorber Technology
16 Nov | Microwave JournalFull Text External Link Indicator
"After nearly two years of development, Comtest has finished work on its new MT45-JT absorber and is ready to present the technology at the 39th annual meeting and symposium of the Antenna Measurements Techniques Association (AMTA) in Atlanta, Ga. The MT45-JT owes its name to the recognizable Javelin tip it is equipped with. This specially designed tip allows the absorber to operate in frequencies from 500 MHz all the way up to 40 Ghz, meaning Comtest’s polystyrene absorber is now able to match the performance of traditional polyurethane foam absorbers."

Quantum Optical Memory Device One Thousand Times Smaller Than Previous Options
29 Oct | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
“The prospects for optical quantum networks—in which information is transmitted by encoding data using the quantum state of photons—has been on the upswing lately, leading to some commercial quantum photonics products currently on the market.” by Dexter Johnson
Manipulating and Controlling Sound: The Development of Acoustic Metamaterials
24 Aug | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"From consumer audio to ultrasound imaging, the impact of new metamaterial structures for acoustic cloaking is far-reaching." by GEMMA CHURCH and VALERIO MARRA
Making the Case for Acoustics Modeling and Simulation Apps
17 Aug | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"In designing acoustical systems, engineers must account for multiple physics and their interactions at multiple scales and frequencies." by Mads J. Herring Jensen
A Hybrid of Quantum Computing and Machine Learning Is Spawning New Ventures
26 Jul | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"Machine learning, the field of AI that allows Alexa and Siri to parse what you say and self-driving cars to safely drive down a city street, could benefit from quantum computer-derived speedups, say researchers. And if a technology incubator program in Toronto, Canada has its way, there may even be quantum machine learning startup companies launching in a few years too." by Mark Anderson

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is taking place in Denver this week, and just like last year, it’s host to some amazing, incredible, and utterly bizarre technology demos. This year’s theme is “Explore, Innovate, Inspire,” which is just exactly the sort of theme you want when you really have no idea what the theme should be. We’ve gone through hundreds of 30-second video clips to find the most interesting, craziest stuff, and today, we're bringing you everything brand new and amazing in 3D printing, along with the project abstracts for all the details. Don’t forget to check out our earlier posts on Interesting Interfaces and Virtual Reality." by Evan Ackerman
Photonic Hypercrystals Are Now a Reality, and Light Will Never Be the Same
23 May | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"In 2014, researchers predicted the theoretical existence of a strange new material that altered the interaction between light and matter. The material, dubbed photonic hypercrystal, has now become a reality." by Dexter Johnson
