The first step towards the improvement of quantum computers. Scientists have figured out how to “photograph” electrons with an interval of quintillion seconds

Scientists have found a way to “photograph” electrons in motion “at a high frame rate.” This was reported by the publication New Atlas.

The first step towards the improvement of quantum computers.  Scientists have figured out how to

The frequency of modern processes is measured in billions of hertz – that is, the state of the system changes billions of times per second. “For quantum computing, this is very slow because the electrons inside a computer chip collide trillions of times per second, and each collision completes a cycle of quantum computing. To improve performance, we need snapshots of the movement of electrons that are a billion times faster. And now we have them,” said McKillo Kira of the University of Michigan, one of the authors of the paper.

The team’s new device takes measurements on a completely different time scale – attoseconds (10-eighteen), which is one quintillionth of a second.

To achieve this, scientists use two light pulses with a specific energy. The first pulse of infrared light puts the electrons in a state where they can move through the semiconductor material. A low-energy terahertz pulse is then applied, which directs the electrons into trajectories that cause head-on collisions. This produces a flash of light, and the exact timing of these flashes can be determined to reveal quantum interactions and other information. Scientists can then reconstruct the picture of events, as if by obtaining “photos” of the system at each moment of time with an interval of attoseconds.

Physicists say such devices are the first step towards improving quantum computers, as they expand our understanding of how electrons move, behave and interact in materials.

Named the best apps and games for iPhone iPad Mac

Apple has announced the winners of the annual App Store Awards, naming the 16 best apps and games presented in the App Store in 2022.

This year’s winners represent a diverse community of developers from around the world whose apps and games have been selected by the Apple App Store editorial team for “exceptional experiences and deep cultural impact.”

This year’s App Store Award winners have reimagined our app experience with a fresh and thoughtful perspective. From self-taught soloists to international teams operating around the world, these entrepreneurs make a significant impact and represent how apps and games affect our communities and lives.

Tim Cook, Apple CEO

Named the best apps and games for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV and Apple Watch

iPhone App of the Year is BeReal, which lets you share photos and chat with friends. It does not have filters and masks, so the pictures are as vivid as possible, close to reality. Apex Legends Mobile was named the best game for iPhone.

The iPad App of the Year was GoodNotes 5 by Time Base Technology Limited, which “takes digital note-taking to the next level with best-in-class Apple Pencil support.”

For Mac computers, MacFamilyTree 10 was the best app, which will be appreciated by genealogists, and for Apple Watch smartwatches, the Gentler Streak app was chosen.

You can see the full list of applications, including eight games, on the Apple website.

Recall that the former top manager criticized the App Store in a recent article.

Former president of Neuralink launched a startup to develop a

A startup Hodak Science has been launched in the United States, where they are developing a brain-computer interface. At the same time, the Hodak Science version does not require implants. Its creator is the former president of Neuralink, Max Hodak.

For work, it is proposed to use not electronics, but photonics; for manipulations with the brain, it is proposed to use light. The startup has already received funding of $160 million. At the moment, the company has already developed the Science Eye prosthesis, which is being tested on rabbits, and will move to human trials in the coming years. It should help with the treatment of certain diseases of the central and peripheral vision.

Hodak Science also wants to create an operating system that will output data directly to the retina, which will allow you to show hints, instructions, and so on. So far, it has not been reported when it is worth waiting for ready-made solutions, but the operation itself has already been worked out. True, this requires stimulating the cells of the optic nerve, for this they are injected with an artificial protein.

At the same time, Hodak remains a shareholder of Neuralink, as well as a holder of securities in a competing startup, Synchron. These companies are developing implantable chips.
