Physicists discover a new approach for building quantum computers
The main reason why quantum computers are so hard to manufacture is that now scientists still haven't find a simple way to control complex systems of qubits. This research discovers a different approach:Instead of uniting multiple two-state systems into one, authors use one system with (...)

EFF lawsuit takes on DMCA Section 1201
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) sued the U.S. government today on behalf of technology creators and researchers to overturn onerous provisions of copyright law that violate the First Amendment. EFF's lawsuit, filed with co-counsel Brian Willen, Stephen Gikow, and Lauren Gallo White of (...)

An accelerated pipeline to open materials research
The Bellerophon Environment for Analysis of Materials (BEAM) is an ORNL platform that combines scientific instruments with web and data services and HPC resources through a user-friendly interface. Designed to streamline data analysis and workflow processes from experiments originating at DOE (...)
