University of Kent and the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory researchers have discovered a new rare topological superconductor, LaPt3P, which could be used in the future of quantum computing. This discovery was made through muon spin relaxation experiments, and solves the issue of elementary units of quantum computers (qubits) losing their quantum properties from electromagnetic fields. Topological superconductors host protected metallic states on their surfaces. Read more for two videos on quantum computing and additional information.

Long before the Apple Watch and other smartwatches, there was the Seiko Data-2000. This wristwatch computer was released in 1983 and came bundled with an external keyboard for data-entry. Unlike the devices of today, data had to be synced from the keyboard to the watch using electro-magnetic coupling, or in other words, a wireless dock. It was named Data-2000 for its ability to store 2000 characters, while its memory is a minuscule 112 digits. Read more for two videos and additional information.

Researchers at the University of Cambridge Graphene Center have found that through the use of graphene, hard disk drive storage capacity could be increased ten-fold. A standard hard drive consists of platters covered in carbon-based overcoats (COCs) for protection and over the years, the thickness has been reduced from 12.5nm to 3nm, resulting in a data density of 1TB per square inch. By replacing these layers with graphene, they discovered that it’s possible to greatly increase data density. Read more for a video on graphene and additional information.

NVIDIA is working on a 3D map of the universe in an aim to probe subatomic interactions for green energy sources and much more. The team will use Perlmutter at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), a supercomputer that will deliver nearly four exaflops of AI performance. What this means is that it’s now the fastest system on the planet on the 16- and 32-bit mixed-precision math AI uses, fully utilizing the 6,000+ Nvidia A100 Tensor Core GPUs.

Could we be getting closer to developing the technology required to build a time machine? Possibly, as scientists from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), along with colleagues in Switzerland as well as the US, have managed to reverse the direction of time with a quantum computer. Simply put, it was made from electron “qubits,” or a unit of information described by a “one”, a “zero”, or a mixed “superposition” of both states. Read more for a video and additional information.
