Quantum networks: light at the end of the tunnel?

A group of German physicists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics has succeeded in building the first working prototype for a quantum network. The network has the ability to send, receive and store quantum data between two different locations using fiber optics. Although only rudimentary at this early stage, the team from Max Planck say that the design can be further refined and is scalable.

German scientists create cheap nanowires manufacturing

Nanowire manufacturing made much less costly

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart have found a way to build crystalline semiconductor nanowires for much less cost, PhysOrg said this week. This is thanks to lowering the necessary temperature, from about 600 to 900 degrees Celsius, down to 150 degrees Celsius. Also, instead of a gold catalyst, the scientists can use much less costly metals, such as aluminum.
