Molecular Quantum Bit with Long Coherence Time Discovered in Stuttgart

Recently, many different systems have been proposed for the physical implementation of a quantum bit. Very promising proposals utilize the electron spin in magnetic molecules. Of these, coordination compounds consisting of a metal ion with organic groups offer the advantage of the realization of tailor-made physical properties via convenient chemical manipulations. A well-known limiting factor for the life time of the superposition state is the

Strengthening Thin-Film Bonds with Ultrafast Data Collection

When studying extremely fast reactions in ultrathin materials, two measurements are better than one. A new research tool captures information about both temperature and crystal structure during extremely fast reactions in thin-film materials. The combined device will help scientists study new materials and processes used to make advanced technologies, including state-of-the-art semiconductors and flat-screen display devices

Supersonic Laser-Propelled Rockets

Laser propelled spacecrafts used to be a thing of science fiction… until now. Currently, the maximum speed of a spacecraft is limited by the amount of solid or liquid fuel that it can carry. Achieving higher speeds means that more fuel must be burned—fuel that, inconveniently, has to be carried by the craft and hefted into space. These burdensome loads can be reduced, however, if a laser—one located at a remote location, and not actually on the spacecraft—were used to provide additional propulsive force

CU-Boulder instrument onboard MAVEN sends back first images of Mars

The image shows the planet from an altitude of 36,500 kilometers, or 22,680 miles, in three ultraviolet wavelength bands. Blue shows the ultraviolet light from the sun scattered from atomic hydrogen gas in an extended cloud that goes to

Rediscovering Venus to Find Faraway Earths

As the search for Earth-like planets wages on, a team of researchers from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics may have found a way to speed up the process. The team is developing a new laser-based technology known as the green astro-comb to obtain information about the mass of a distant planet. Using this information, astronomers will be able to determine whether distant exoplanets are

NuSTAR Discovers Impossibly Bright Dead Star

Astronomers working with NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), led by Caltech's Fiona Harrison, have found a pulsating dead star beaming with the energy of about 10 million suns. The object, previously thought to be a black hole because it is so powerful, is in fact

Thermonuclear X-ray bursts on neutron stars set speed record

A new study of thermonuclear X-ray bursts on neutron stars reveals that, on very rare occasions, shells can be expelled at relativistic speeds - up to 30 percent of the

Smallest Known Galaxy with a Supermassive Black Hole

A University of Utah astronomer and his colleagues discovered that an ultracompact dwarf galaxy harbors a supermassive black hole – the smallest galaxy known to contain such a massive light-sucking object. The finding suggests huge black holes may be more common than previously believed
