A new testbed facility capable of testing superconducting qubit fidelity in a controlled environment free of stray background radiation will benefit quantum information sciences and the development of quantum computing.
PNNL provided ultra-low measurements of argon-39 to date groundwater as part of a collaborative study of the aquifer in California’s San Joaquin Valley. PNNL is one of only a few laboratories worldwide with this capability.
In recognition of Nuclear Science Week on Oct. 19-23, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory reflects on more than half a century of advancing nuclear science for the nation’s energy, environment, and security frontiers.
Radiation from natural sources in the environment can limit the performance of superconducting quantum bits, known as qubits. The discovery has implications for quantum computing and for the search for dark matter.
A cadre of physical scientists, engineers and computing experts at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is poised to participate in the launch of three new DOE Office of Science-sponsored quantum information science research centers.
Scientists at PNNL have contributed much of the nuclear science that underlies an international monitoring system designed to detect nuclear explosions worldwide. The system detects radioxenon anywhere on the planet.
The world’s largest scientific society honored Sue B. Clark, a PNNL and WSU chemist, for contributions toward resolving our legacy of radioactive waste, advancing nuclear safeguards, and developing landmark nuclear research capabilities.
B3? E4? Remember the board game Battleship? One player suggests a set of coordinates to another, hoping to find the elusive location of an unseen vessel.That is a good place to start in assessing the search for dark matter.
A gathering of international experts in Portland, Oregon, explored the future of electron microscopy and surfaced potential solutions in areas including new instrument designs, high-speed detectors, and data analytics capabilities.
