Physicists use light waves to enable ultrafast quantum computing

Scientists have discovered that terahertz light - light at trillions of cycles per second - can act as a control knob to accelerate supercurrents. That can help open up the quantum world of matter and energy at atomic and subatomic scales.

3D printing 100 times faster with light

Rather than building up plastic filaments layer by layer, a new approach to 3D printing lifts complex shapes from a vat of liquid at up to 100 times faster than conventional 3D printing processes, researchers have shown.

One of the world's fastest cameras films motion of electrons

The special feature of the Kiel system is its extremely high temporal resolution of 13 femtoseconds. This makes it one of the fastest electron cameras in the world.

Groundbreaking new technology could allow 100-times-faster internet

Th world-first nanophotonic device encodes more data and processes it much faster than conventional fiber optics by using a special form of 'twisted' light.

World's fastest electric car charger

The Terra HP DC charger offers 120-miles of range in 8 minutes and can fill cars up at a rate nearly three times that of Tesla Superchargers.

Europe's First Ultra High Speed Chargers In Germany

Allego has installed the first of several ultra high speed chargers outside Frankfurt am Main, Germany. More will be added to major transportation routes by next summer.

Quantum internet goes hybrid

Researchers report the first demonstration of an elementary link of a hybrid quantum information network.

Two huge ultra-fast charging networks announced for Europe

The first network, IONITY, will see 400 charging stations capable of 350kW charging deployed across Europe by 2020. The second one, E.ON, is planning on installing 10,000 "ultra fast" charge points across Europe.

World's quickest laser pulse can track electrons in slow motion

Scientists have shortened X-ray pulses so dramatically that they can watch electrons move at a glacial pace.

World’s first 5G data connection on 5G modem chipset for mobiles

The company’s Qualcomm Technologies achieved a 5G data connection on a 5G modem chipset for mobile devices—with an emphasis on “mobile.”

The world's fastest film camera: When light practically stands still

A research group has developed a camera that can film at a rate equivalent to five trillion images per second, or events as short as 0.2 trillionths of a second. This is faster than has previously been possible.

New quantum liquid crystals may play role in future of computers

New state of matter - the first 3-D quantum liquid crystals may have applications in ultrafast quantum computing.

Physicists Unveil Blueprint for a Quantum Computer the Size of a Soccer Field

Now physicists from the UK have created a blueprint for a soccer-field-sized machine they say could reach the blistering speeds that would allow them to solve problems beyond the reach of today’s most powerful supercomputers.

An Ultrafast Camera Captures 'Sonic Booms' of Light for First Time

The new technology used to make this discovery could one day allow scientists to image live activity in the brain.

Japan plans 130-petaflops China-beating number-crunching supercomputer
