Physicists create quantum microphone to count sound particles

Physicists from Stanford have created a device they call a “quantum microphone” that is sensitive enough to measure the individual particles of sound called phonons. The scientists say that the new device will allow new types of quantum sensors, transducers, and storage devices for...

Superconductivity at –23 degrees Celsius?

Researchers at the University of Chicago have managed to beat the previous world record for high-temperature superconductivity (HTSC) by 50K. This new material reaches superconductivity at –23 °C (under very high pressure conditions). by Thomas Scherer @ elektormagazine.com Even...
