Unique Quantum Material Could Enable Ultra-powerful, Compact Computers | Columbia Quantum Initiative

Information in computers is transmitted through semiconductors by the movement of electrons and stored in the direction of the electron spin in magnetic materials. To shrink devices while improving their...

Material-Design Tools Taking On Quantum Monte Carlo Methods, Approximation of the Schrodinger Equation

A multi-institutional effort that includes researchers from Argonne, Lawrence Berkeley, and Oak Ridge National Laboratories is now underway to prepare QMCPACK for deployment on forthcoming, GPU-powered exascale machines, including the ALCF’s...

Work on Quantum Materials Earns the Max Planck-Humboldt Research Award

Pablo Jarillo-Herrero, the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Physics at MIT, has received the 2021 Max Planck-Humboldt Research Award from the Max Planck Society and the Alexander von Humboldt...

Indispensable Research for Future Information and Computing Technologies Conducted by U.S. Department of Energy

A team led by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has found a rare quantum material in which electrons move in coordinated ways, essentially “dancing.” Straining the material...

Quantum Monte Carlo at Exascale: Key to Finding New Semiconductor Materials?

Researchers are urgently trying to identify possible materials to replace silicon-based semiconductors. The processing power in modern computers continues to increase even as the size of the silicon on which...

Quantum Computing Theorist Vojtech Vlcek Awarded U.S. Dept of Energy Grant

These broad, difficult questions are the type of inquiries that UC Santa Barbara theorist Vojtech Vlcek and his lab will investigate as part of a select group of scientists chosen...
