A different kind of gravitational wave detector
A different kind of gravitational wave detector
Stanford physicists are helping develop a device that turns frozen, falling atoms into an exquisitely sensitive gravitational wave detector that could provide a new glimpse into the most energetic and oldest events in the universe. Hidden deep in a basement at Stanford stands a 10-meter-tall tube, wrapped in a metal cage and draped in wires.

A chip to measure vacuums
A chip to measure vacuums
Vacuums are a vital part of the processes - such as freeze-drying - used to make and preserve countless everyday items and must be measured with precision. An EPFL spin-off, Hexisense, is bringing to market a gallium nitride-based chip that can measure the quantity of certain gas molecules cheaply and with unrivalled precision.

First report of superconductivity in a nickel oxide material
Share This Article An illustration depicts a key step in creating a new type of superconducting material: Much like pulling blocks from a tower in a Jenga game, scientists used chemistry to neatly remove a layer of oxygen atoms. This flipped the material into a new atomic structure - a nickelate - that can conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency.

Quantum computers and the future of computation
Are there limits to what computers are actually able to compute, and do quantum computers really solve more problems than conventional computers' Computer scientist Scott Aaronson will discuss these kinds of fundamental questions during the Paul Bernays Lectures 2019. In 2007, something unusual happened: an ad spot ran on Australian TV that involved two models in a dressing room discussing quantum mechanics.
