Quantum Computer Built Inside a Diamond
Apr 05, 2012 11:44 AM E
Diamonds are forever - or, at least, the effects of this diamond on quantum computing may be. A team that includes scientists from USC has built a quantum computer in a diamond, the first of its kind to include protection against "decoherence" - noise that prevents the computer from functioning properly.

Simulation Software Optimizes Networks
Apr 05, 2012 10:37 AM E
Almost every winter, news about reduced gas deliveries from Siberia to Europe makes the headlines. Regardless of the political reasons for a shortage, operating pipelines in severe winters is very challenging. Because if the gas in the pipes cools off too sharply, it partly liquefies and can no longer flow as swiftly.
