A new quantum computing approach using exchange-type two-qubit gates constitutes a very promising avenue to calculate molecular properties.
Modern digital computers have changed our lives in a variety of ways, but the technology on which they are built has still some room for improvement. As computational workloads continue to grow due to massive amounts of data and techniques like artificial intelligence, more powerful computing technologies become of paramount importance. Two of the main […]
Scientists at IBM Research-Zurich use gallium phosphide to create on-chip integrated devices using optomechanics for quantum transduction.
Magnetic materials could be at the forefront of an upcoming revolution in electronics.
The patterning of molecules is critical in applications including microarrays, tissue engineering, biosensors, biomaterials and fundamental cell studies.
IBM Research understands data privacy for a modern business and has developed state-of-the-art solutions for protecting data in the GDPR era.
As data grows, so does the energy consumption required to store and process it, which is why scientists around the world are turning to light (photonics) as a means of moving data. The Pockels effect, an important phenomenon in certain materials, allows changing the optical properties of the material through an electrical stimulus. The effect […]
Can silica gel desiccant packs, often found in shoe boxes and electronics, be the answer to our energy challenges for buildings? A four-year project proves yes, sort of. According to the European Commission, heating and cooling in buildings and industry accounts for half of the EU’s energy consumption, and fossil fuels generate 84 percent of […]
If you want to teach a child what an elephant looks like, you have an infinite number of options. Take a photo from National Geographic, a stuffed animal of Dumbo, or an elephant keychain; show it to the child; and the next time he sees an object which looks like an elephant he will likely […]
A team from IBM Research-Zurich and the Universities of Basel and Zurich developed a new technique to fabricate microelectronic devices by electrically contacting molecules at two well-defined termini. The method allows molecular integration on conventional silicon chips and by standard fabrication methods as used in semiconductor industry. The technique is based on depositing a nanoparticle […]
