Google Quantum AI Reveals Photon Bound States Remain Strong Even Amidst Chaos

A ring of superconducting qubits can host “bound states” of microwave photons, where photons tend to clump together on neighboring qubit sites. Credit: Google Quantum AI Using a quantum processor, the researchers made the microwave photons unusually sticky. After convincing them to clump together in bound states, they discovered that these photon clusters survived in …

Groundbreaking findings: New analysis reveals true nature of ancient asteroid

The new information from the Ryugu samples could help redefine the standard elemental compositions of solid materials in the solar system. Direct samples from the near-Earth asteroid Ryugu offer scientists insight into the raw materials of solid matter in the outer regions of the early solar system. Since ancient Greece, humans have been fascinated by …

Marine life hit by ‘perfect storm’ as Red List reveals species near extinction

Illegal and unsustainable fishing, fossil fuel exploration, climate crisis and disease are pushing marine species to the brink of extinction, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List, with populations of dugong, abalone and pillar coral at risk of disappearing forever. Marine life is facing a ‘perfect storm’ of human overconsumption, …

New Research Reveals Obscure and Conflicting Heat Transfer Behaviors

An illustration of a boron arsenide crystal placed between two diamonds in a controlled chamber with thermal energy carried under extreme pressure. Credit: The H-Lab/UCLA UCLA researchers and their colleagues have discovered a new physical principle governing how heat is transferred through materials, and the discovery contradicts the conventional wisdom that heat always moves faster …
