the atomic equivalent of a laser requires
hefty laboratory equipment. A simpler approach
could make this coherent matter much more
common. Someday atom lasers could lead to
faster computer chips and ultrafast quantum
makes mini memory
By making a particular molecule stand out in the
presence of an electric field, a research team has
the beginnings of a memory device that stores a
bit in a single molecule.
heavy volume smooth Net traffic?
Internet traffic varies quite a bit, and peak volumes
can tax the infrastructure. Add more volume and
the peaks get worse, right? Not necessarily, if
a Bell Labs theory proves right.
game smooths streaming audio
Fitting fat music files over narrow network pipes
usually calls for heavy number crunching. One approach
eases the burden by messing with your head.
effect for chipmaking confirmed
Researchers show that linking photons in pairs makes
light shine on half the area it otherwise would.
The result could be a way to keep Moore's Law on
