Sophisticated antenna arrays paired with high-frequency wireless chips act like superpowers for modern electronics, boosting everything from sensing to security to data processing. In his lab at Princeton, Kaushik Sengupta is working to expand those powers even further.

New antennas and microchips help electronics blur the line between science and scifi

New research led by a team of scientists at The Australian National University (ANU) has outlined a way to achieve more accurate measurements of microscopic objects using quantum computers - a step that could prove useful in a huge range of next-generation technologies, including biomedical sensing.

New techniques for accurate measurements of tiny objects

EPFL researchers have collaborated with those at Harvard and ETH Zurich on a new thin-film circuit that, when connected to a laser beam, produces finely tailorable terahertz-frequency waves. The device opens up a world of potential applications in optics and telecommunications.

Integrated photonic circuits could help close the 'terahertz gap'

A perfect diamond may be a jeweler’s dream, but for quantum scientists, beauty lies in a stone’s tiny defects. These flaws hold the power to trap and control single electrons, opening possibilities for both quantum computing and mapping molecular structures.
