Award to Michelle Simmons reflects strategic importance of quantum physics for Australia – The Conversation AU

The Conversation AUAward to Michelle Simmons reflects strategic importance of quantum physics for AustraliaThe Conversation AUClassical computers operate on binary logic – based on bits, binary digits where 1 or 0 represent the logical states “true” or “false”. A quantum computer, on the other hand, operates on quantum bits or “qubits”, which apart from 0 or 1 can also be in …

New Type of Transistor a Memristora Discovered by Researchers

New Delhi, January 28: Researchers have recently found a way of enhancing the capabilities of an emerging nanotechnology that could open the door to a new generation of electronics. In a study published in the Scientific Journals, researchers show how they have pushed the memristor – a simpler and smaller alternative to the transistor, with the capability of altering its resistance and storing multiple memory states – to a new level of performance after experimenting with its component materials.
