The newly launched Quantum Fundamentals, ARchitecture and Machines initiative will build upon existing strengths in theoretical and experimental quantum science and engineering at Stanford and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
SLAC scientists find a new way to explain how a black hole’s plasma jets boost particles to the highest energies observed in the universe. The results could also prove useful for fusion and accelerator research on Earth.
By structuring nanowires in a way that mimics geckos’ ears, researchers have found a way to record the incoming angle of light. This technology could have applications in robotic vision, photography and augmented reality.
