Our Zurich-based team of researchers has just managed to efficiently guide visible light through a silicon wire – an important milestone towards faster, more efficient integrated circuits. Our low-loss silicon waveguide could enable new photonic chip designs for applications that rely on visible light, and could lead to more efficient lasers and modulators used in telecoms.
Our team has developed Physics-informed Neural Networks (PINN) models where physics is integrated into the neural network’s learning process – dramatically boosting the AI’s ability to produce accurate results. Described in our recent paper, PINN models are made to respect physics laws that force boundaries on the results and generate a realistic output.
In cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED), light and matter lose their distinct characteristics.
Electromagnetism is a branch of physics that deals with all phenomena of electricity and magnetism. This field is the key foundation of our modern age of electricity and information technology. It is governed by a set of fundamental principles encoded in four equations called Maxwell equations, which have been known for approximately 150 years. Every […]
Last year the world consumed almost 97 million barrels of oil per day. What if I told you that many more barrels still remain in those same wells? Deep inside the rock, 60 percent and more of a reservoir’s oil remains trapped in capillaries which are sometimes only tens to hundreds of nanometers wide (For […]
“I’m not a philosopher. I’m a physicist and a technician…you have ideas or you see needs and you think about them. Mostly I’ve done that.” That’s how IBM Fellow Emeritus and former IBM Researcher Richard L. “Dick” Garwin humbly sums up his career as one of the most influential scientists and researchers of his time, […]
Dr. Christine Corbett Moran travels the world in search of challenging problems to solve. The National Science Foundation’s Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at the California Institute of Technology earned a PhD in Zurich, taught mobile development and entrepreneurship in Manila, and now calls Antarctica home while conducting experiments on the South Pole Telescope. It’s […]
