Superconducting Metamaterial Traps Quantum Light
Superconducting Metamaterial Traps Quantum Light
Conventional computers store information in a bit, a fundamental unit of logic that can take a value of 0 or 1. Quantum computers rely on quantum bits, also known as a "qubits," as their fundamental building blocks. Bits in traditional computers encode a single value, either a 0 or a 1. The state of a qubit, by contrast, can simultaneously have a value of both 0 and 1.

’Molecular hopper’ created, small enough to move single DNA strands
Researchers from the University of Oxford have constructed a "molecular hopper", capable of moving single strands of DNA through a protein nanotube. The tiny hopper works by making and breaking in sequence simple chemical bonds that attach it to a nanoscale track. This can be turned on, off or reversed by a small electrical potential, which ultimately might make it suitable for use in nanopore DNA sequencing devices.

Harris scholar fights to reform property tax system
In 2015, if you'd asked property tax expert Christopher Berry about the work he did for the Cook County Assessor's Office, he would have said it was "a textbook example of how to do policy reform." The Assessor's Office determines the value of properties in the county. But James Houlihan, the office's leader at the time Berry began his work, knew that some of those assessments were flawed.

Infrared Beams Show Cell Types in a Different Light
By shining highly focused infrared light on living cells, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) hope to unmask individual cell identities, and to diagnose whether the cells are diseased or healthy. They will use their technique to produce detailed, color-based maps of individual cells and collections of cells - in microscopic and eventually nanoscale detail - that will be analyzed using machine-learning techniques to automatically sort out cell characteristics.
