What We're Reading
Two independent teams — one led by researchers at Google, the other by researchers at Quantinuum — have reported creating and braiding versions of these anyons using quantum computers. The results could help scientists construct quantum computers that are resistant to the errors that currently bedevil the machines.
CCB research scientist Sonya Hanson served as a scientific advisor for “Double Helix,” a musical that illuminates Rosalind Franklin's contributions, which became the basis for James Watson and Francis Crick’s 1953 breakthrough.
In two papers, researchers have poked holes in different models of a so-called bouncing universe, suggesting the universe we see around us is probably a one-and-done proposition.
