Engineers crack 58-year-old puzzle on way to quantum breakthrough

Engineers crack 58-year-old puzzle on way to quantum breakthrough

Lachlan GilbertA mishap during an experiment led UNSW quantum computing researchers to crack a mystery that had stood since 1961.A happy accident in the laboratory has led to a breakthrough discovery that not only solved a problem that stood for more than half a century, but has major implications for the development of quantum computers and sensors.In a study published today in , a team of engineers at UNSW Sydney has done what a celebrated scientist first suggested in 1961 was possible, but has eluded everyone since: controlling the nucleus of a single atom using only electric...

Hot qubits made in Sydney break one of the biggest constraints to practical quantum computers

Hot qubits made in Sydney break one of the biggest constraints to practical quantum computers

UNSW Media/Science In PublicA proof-of-concept published today in Nature promises warmer, cheaper and more robust quantum computing. And it can be manufactured using conventional silicon chip foundries.Most quantum computers being developed around the world will only work at fractions of a degree above absolute zero. That requires multi-million-dollar refrigeration and as soon as you plug them into conventional electronic circuits they’ll instantly overheat.But now researchers led by Professor Andrew Dzurak at UNSW Sydney have addressed this problem.“Our new results open a path from...

Engineers find neat way to turn waste carbon dioxide into useful material

Engineers find neat way to turn waste carbon dioxide into useful material

Lachlan GilbertMaking catalysts to convert waste carbon dioxide into useful industrial products has been expensive and complicated – until now. UNSW engineers show it’s as easy as playing with Lego.Chemical engineers from UNSW Sydney have developed new technology that helps convert harmful carbon dioxide emissions into chemical building blocks to make useful industrial products like fuel and plastics.And if adopted on a large scale, the process could give the world breathing space as it transitions towards a green economy.In a paper published today in the journal , Dr Rahman Daiyan and Dr...

Every spot of urban green space counts

Every spot of urban green space counts

Diane NazaroffAn international study of parks and gardens finds even the humble roadside verge plays an important role in the environment and for our health.The city park may be an artificial ecosystem but it plays a key role in the environment and our health, the first global assessment of the microbiome in city parks has found.The study, published in , found that even roadside verges contribute a range of important microbial communities that are critical for sustaining productive ecosystem services, such as filtering pollutants and sequestering carbon dioxide.“Parks are not the...
