University launches Institute for Compound Semiconductors

University launches Institute for Compound Semiconductors
In order to take research findings out of the lab and put them into the hands of those who can best exploit them, Cardiff University has launched the Institute for Compound Semiconductors (ICS). The aim is to bridge the exploitation gap, or 'valley of death'. The ICS aims to position South East Wales as the European leader in compound semiconductors, providing facilities that help researchers and industry work together to meet consumer demand by progressing academic research to a point where it can be introduced reliably and quickly into the production environment.

Aiming at mass-producible quantum computers

Aiming at mass-producible quantum computers
Quantum computers are experimental devices that offer large speedups on some computational problems. One promising approach to building them involves harnessing nanometer-scale atomic defects in diamond materials. But practical, diamond-based quantum computing devices will require the ability to position those defects at precise locations in complex diamond structures, where the defects can function as qubits, the basic units of information in quantum computing.

Method improves accuracy of frequency measurements

Method improves accuracy of frequency measurements
Accurate frequency measurements are of crucial importance in many scientific and technological applications. To analyse biologically relevant molecules, for instance, one measures the frequencies at which the atomic nuclei react to electromagnetic waves. Using new measurement procedures based on quantum mechanics, it is now even possible to do such analyses with tiny probes that can be placed in the immediate vicinity of tissues and cells.
