A team of scientists from the universities of Alberta and Toronto have laid out the blueprints for a “quantum battery” that never loses its charge.
A single devastating injury to the vocal cords can be enough to strip a person of their ability to speak forever, which can affect everything from their careers to their relationships. Now, a team...
Researchers at Stanford University have developed a “quantum microphone” that is so sensitive, it can measure individual particles of sound, which are otherwise known as “phonons.” “We expect this...
It turns out, you don’t need a computer to create an artificial intelligence. In fact, you don’t even need electricity. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison have found a way to...
The qubits central to quantum computers are incredibly fragile, prone to switching between states at the slightest disruption. This has made error correction a major focus of quantum computer...
Untapped A new report by the U.S. Department of Energy identifies geothermal energy — in which heat from beneath the Earth’s surface is used to generate electricity — as an underdeveloped source of...
Contact High French engineering school IMT Atlantique revealed what it calls “the first stand-alone contact lens with a flexible micro battery” earlier this month. And, notably, it caught the...
Standardized Testing To help make genetic screening easier and more accessible, scientists built a handheld device that uses CRISPR gene-editing technology to scan for mutations much more easily...
The Waiting Game Scientists first isolated graphene — a transparent layer of carbon just one atom thick — in 2004. Almost immediately, we began hearing about all the wondrous ways the material...
Wish Granted More than anything else, adult smartphone users in the U.S. wish their devices had longer battery lives. Avenir Telecom appears to have had that desire in mind while developing...
