Smartphone apps have proved invaluable for helping people manage chronic pain during the COVID-19 pandemic, but researchers warn that the need for information sharing and education in this area is being neglected.
University of Rochester researchers describe the first demonstration of highly chirped pulses created by a using a spectral filter in a Kerr resonator, enabling them to widen a laser pulse wavefront by separating the beam's colors. The chirped pulses remain stable even with more than 90% energy loss.
Researchers have discovered a new and more efficient computing method for pairing the reliability of a classical computer with the strength of a quantum system.
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology and NEC Corporation jointly develop a 28-GHz phased-array transceiver that supports efficient and reliable 5G communications. The proposed transceiver outperforms previous designs in various regards by adapting fast beam switching and leakage cancellation mechanism.
Researchers found differences in sociodemographic and clinical characteristics by entry location for SARS-CoV-2 testing within a safety-net health system. White and English-speaking individuals disproportionately initiated testing via telehealth visits, while black, Native American and non-English-speaking patients disproportionately initiated testing through the emergency department.
New dual band stabilisation technique cancels the problem of temperature fluctuations to allow long distance quantum communication. Quantum key distribution demonstrated on fibres of record 600km length. Significant advance towards building a global quantum internet.
The world is one step closer to ultimately secure conference calls, thanks to a collaboration between Quantum Communications Hub researchers and their German colleagues, enabling a quantum-secure conversation to take place between four parties simultaneously.
Scientists have created a cybersecurity technology called Shadow Figment that is designed to lure hackers into an artificial world, then stop them from doing damage by feeding them illusory tidbits of success. The aim is to sequester bad actors by captivating them with an attractive--but imaginary--world. The technology is aimed at protecting physical targets--infrastructure such as buildings, the electric grid, water and sewage systems, and pipelines.
This research investigated the information-theoretic complexity of fungal electrical activity and pave the way for additional investigation into sensorial fusion and fungi decision making
Scientists at Sandia National Laboratories have built the world's smallest and best acoustic amplifier. And they did it using a concept that was all but abandoned for almost 50 years.
