Neutron scattering brings us a step closer to the quantum computer

29 March 2018

A major challenge for future quantum computers is that you have to keep the quantum information long enough to make calculations on it – but the information only has a very short lifespan, often less than a microsecond.

Iron secrets behind superconductors unlocked

07 July 2017

Due to magnetism iron should - theoretically - be a poor superconductor. Nevertheless certain ironbased materials possess fine superconducting properties. Why? Because the five unbound electrons found in iron...
