Researchers have reliably read out two electron spins, the elementary qubit building blocks for one day creating a super-fast quantum computer.


Research helps pave the way for the next generation of computer-chip technology: photonic chips, which rely on light instead of electricity, which will allow for faster computing.


Materials scientists and applied physicists collaborating at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have invented a new device that can instantly identify an unknown liquid.


UC Santa Barbara's Kohn Hall, home of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, has been awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).


Researchers have developed a novel approach that could redefine optical imaging of live biological samples.


Feel uneasy with an anthropomorphic robot, playing a video game or watching an animated movie, where the human characters are realistic but not quite right? If yes, then you’ve probably visited what’s called the “uncanny valley.”


Scientists have developed a new, and much less painful and potentially damaging, method to end life-threatening heart fibrillations.


University faculty and administrators from 20 states gathered at Stony Brook in June for an innovative, four-day conference dedicated to improving the way scientists communicate with the public.


Researchers at Delft University of Technology and the University of Basel have established a biomimetic nanopore.


At the White House, President Barack Obama met the seven U.S. recipients of the 2010 Kavli Prizes to recognize and honor their seminal contributions to the three fields for which the Prizes are awarded -- astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience.
