Alzheimer's disease: Moving towards a vaccine
21 Dec | NatureFull Text External Link Indicator
An agent that clears disease-associated amyloid aggregates from the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease does not alleviate disease progression. Yet this disappointing news should not rule out such potential therapies.

'Sweeping it under the carpet' takes on new meaning.

Photon counting: Avalanche inspiration
13 Dec | Nature PhotonicsFull Text External Link Indicator
The ability of a customized avalanche-photodiode detector to distinguish the exact number of photons that it receives will simplify the tools required to perform reliable experiments in quantum optics.

'Missing link' memristor created: Rewrite the textbooks?
21 Sep | EE TimesFull Text External Link Indicator
The long-sought after memristor--the "missing link" in electronic circuit theory--has been invented by Hewlett Packard Senior Fellow R. Stanley Williams at HP Labs (Palo Alto, Calif.) Memristors--the fourth passive component type after resistors, capacitors and inductors--were postulated in a seminal 1971 paper in the IEEE Transactions on Circuit Theory by professor Leon Chua at the University of California (Berkeley), but their first realization was just announced today (Apr 30, 08) by HP. According to Williams and Chua, now virtually every electronics textbook will have to be revised to include the memristor and the new paradigm it represents for electronic circuit theory.

Quantum information: An integrated light circuit
13 Sep | NatureFull Text External Link Indicator
There's a long wish list for a workable quantum computer: a viable system must be fast, compact and stable. The first integrated optical quantum logic circuits are a step in the right direction.

Quantum optics: Beyond single-photon counting
30 Aug | Nature PhotonicsFull Text External Link Indicator
The ability to distinguish how many photons comprise a particular state of light leads to significant benefits in practical quantum information processing and quantum cryptography. Superconducting nanostructures provide an effective solution at telecom wavelengths.

Metamaterials: A tunable terahertz response
30 Aug | Nature PhotonicsFull Text External Link Indicator
The ability to tune the resonant frequency of a metamaterial in the terahertz region will help to overcome some of the limitations of customary designs demonstrated so far. The result could be a new breed of active, frequency-agile devices that are controlled by light.

Quantum computation: The dreamweaver's abacus
06 Jun | NatureFull Text External Link Indicator
Some experts think that a quantum computation could be plaited like a skein of string. And now they may have found the sorts of string they need.

Physicists have 'solved' mystery of levitation
05 Jun | TelegraphFull Text External Link Indicator
"Levitation has been elevated from being pure science fiction to science fact, according to a study reported today by physicists."
