Research into new laser-based satellite communications system

The UK Space Agency has awarded almost £650,000 to Northumbria University to continue world-leading work to develop the first commercially available laser-based inter-satellite communications system. Currently satellites use radio frequency…

Competing quantum interactions enable single molecules to stand up

Nanoscale machinery has many uses, including drug delivery, single-atom transistor technology, or memory storage. However, the machinery must be assembled at the nanoscale which is a considerable challenge for researchers….

How a novel radio frequency control system enhances quantum computers

Researchers built an open source room-temperature control system for superconducting quantum processors. A team of physicists and engineers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) successfully demonstrated the feasibility of…

SwRI developing connected vehicle data exchange platform

… for Florida Department of Transportation. Resulting platform will enable real-time, safety-critical data analysis, dissemination. Southwest Research Institute is leading an $8 million project to develop a data exchange platform…

Researchers disentangle quantum machine learning

A group of international researchers have discovered an important barrier that prevents quantum machine learning from being trained – too much quantum entanglement. Quantum machine learning studies the advantages of…

Artificial intelligence predicts eye movements

A great deal of information constantly flows into our brains via the eyes. Scientists can measure the resulting brain activity using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The precise measurement of eye…

How robust are industrial control systems?

Computer scientists develop new test approach. How do industrial control systems react to disturbances? To analyze the reaction to a particular type of disturbance, caused by computational errors, Saarbrücken computer…

Speech recognition for the hospitality sector

Fraunhofer IDMT is making an important contribution to the digitalization of the hospitality sector within the newly established Foodservice Digital Hub. September 2021 saw the launch of the innovation network…

First prototype for digital twins of patients

Optimum prevention, diagnosis and treatment in just one click. As part of the “MED²ICIN” lighthouse project, seven Fraunhofer Institutes are presenting the first prototype of a digital patient model. This…

A superconducting silicon-photonic chip for quantum communication

Researchers resolve a long-standing challenge in quantum optics: optimal Bell-state measurement of time-bin encoded qubits, to enhance the key rate of secure quantum communication. Integrated quantum photonics (IQP) is a…
