From the New York Times, October 4, 2022 (Sign-up needed to view): Yesterday, the three winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics were recognized for their experiments in an area that has broad implications for secure information transfer and quantum computing. Read more about how their results have cleared the way for “new technology based upon quantum information.”

From the DOE National QIS Research Centers, July 5. 2022: In this video series, scientists affiliated with the U.S. Department of Energy National Quantum Information Science Research Centers presented an overview of quantum information science to Congressional staff in May 2022. The event, titled Quantum Information Science for Everyone, hosted presenters who discussed quantum research, its potential impacts, and the importance of U.S. leadership in this burgeoning area of science and engineering.

Scientists at the Fermilab-led SQMS Center investigate qubits at the atomic level to identify sources of various impurities. By having a deeper understanding of how impurities affect how long a qubit can store information, scientists will be able to figure out how to further improve the performance of quantum computers.

A technique from the newest generation of quantum sensors is helping scientists to use the limitations of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle to their advantage.
