Building a better clock

IQC researcher Alexandre Cooper-Roy

The best clocks in the world can keep time so accurately that they only lose one second in millions or even billions of years. Yet, researchers are still fervently pursuing ever better clocks. Once a certain threshold of clock accuracy and stability is crossed, it will open up tremendous opportunities to understand the universe and to develop quantum technologies like accelerometers, gravimeters, and communication systems.

Benchmarking scalability and performance of quantum computers

IQC faculty members Joel Wallman and Joseph Emerson at the offices of Quantum Benchmark

Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) have demonstrated a new method, called cycle benchmarking, to assess scalability and compare capabilities of different quantum computer platforms.

The finding leads the way towards establishing standards for quantum computing performance and strengthens the global effort to build a large-scale, practical quantum computer.

A twist and a spin: harnessing two quantum properties transforms a neutron beam into a powerful probe of material structure

By cleverly manipulating two properties of a neutron beam, NIST scientists and their collaborators have created a powerful probe of materials that have complex and twisted magnetic structures.
