IBM has been offering quantum computing as a cloud service since last year when it came out with a 5 qubit version of the advanced computers. Today, the company announced that it’s releasing 20-qubit quantum computers, quite a leap in just 18 months
A team of Chinese researchers say they have completed the first long-distance quantum secure direct communication, a critical step toward sending messages that are truly safe from eavesdropping.
Splitting water to produce hydrogen is one renewable energy vision of the future. But adding a simple carbon paste has created the first catalyst of its kind that can not only survive the harsh acidic conditions of water splitting,
Researchers may have solved a key technical challenge with hydrogen storage, paving the way for industrial applications and widespread hydrogen cars.
Done! For 10 years now, a high-temperature fuel cell developed by Jülich scientists has been supplying electricity in a long-term test
The technology consists of a thin film of organic molecules that absorb invisible wavelengths of sunlight. These ultraviolet and the near-infrared wavelengths can then be converted into electricity.
