Quantum computing is a flourishing field of scientific and technological research. The development of quantum computing in the past decades is the so-called second quantum revolution, where various aspects of quantum physics, such as entanglement and superposition, are used to form the main building block of computation — the quantum bit, or...

The low operating temperature of nanowire gas sensors along with their high surface-to-volume ratio are two factors that make gas sensors more practical. In this paper, the growth of ZnO nanowires on a vertically aligned CNT forest is reported. The utilized method for ZnO growth was a rapid microwave-assisted hydrothermal route, which...

In superconducting quantum circuits, aluminum is one of the most widely used materials. It is currently also the superconductor of choice for the development of topological qubits. However, aluminum-based devices suffer from poor magnetic field compatibility. Herein, this limitation is resolved by showing that adatoms of heavy elements (e.g.,...

In this study, a method for the bacterial disinfection of drinking water in the water storage systems based on the electric potential generated from a piezoelectric wind energy harvester is presented. First, an efficient galloping piezoelectric wind energy harvester is designed by adding curve- shaped attachments to the bluff body of the...

The technology of quantum computing is believed to solve certain computational problems significantly faster than classical computers, enabling classically inaccessible problems. However, the technology is still in its infancy and it is still too early to conclude which physical system(s) will form the basis of tomorrow's quantum computer. Small...

After a century from the quantum description of nature, the scientific community has laid the basis for using nature's properties to our advantage. The quantum technology vision stems from the idea of capitalizing these principles in various sectors, such as computation and communication. However, in contrast to classical processors, encoding...

Optical microscopy is a valuable tool for in vivo monitoring of biological structures and functions because of its noninvasiveness. However, imaging deep into biological tissues is challenging due to the scattering and absorption of light. Previous research has shown that the two optimal wavelength windows for high-resolution deep mouse brain...

Semiconducting–superconducting hybrids are vital components for the realization of high-performance nanoscale devices. In particular, semiconducting–superconducting nanowires attract widespread interest owing to the possible presence of non-abelian Majorana zero modes, which are quasiparticles that hold promise for topological quantum...

We characterized the performance of abiased superconducting nanowire to detect X-ray photons. The device, made of a 10 nm thin NbTiN film and fabricated on a dielectric substrate (SiO2, Nb3O5) detected 1000 times larger signal than anticipated from direct X-ray absorption. We attributed this effect to X-ray induced generation of secondary...

This paper investigates the photocatalytic characteristics of Ag nanowire (AgNW)/TiO2 and AgNW/TiO2/graphene oxide (GO) nanocomposites. Samples were synthesized by the direct coating of TiO2 particles on the surface of silver nanowires. As-prepared AgNW/TiO2 and AgNW/TiO2/GO nanocomposites were characterized by electron microscopy, X-ray...

The coming years will see humanity facing significant challenges to ensure its continued survival. The threat of global warming to humans and the environment – exacerbated by rapidly growing population and energy demand – requires quick and decisive actions. Among them, increasing the generation of electricity from renewable resources is...

Rapid industrialization and use of carbon based fuels has caused a drastic increase in the atmospheric CO<sub>2</sub> levels in the last few decades. The rising anthropogenic CO<sub>2</sub> levels pose a significant threat to the environment as evidenced by the increase in the mean global temperature levels, and the rising ocean levels. To...

We show a hard superconducting gap in a Ge-Si nanowire Josephson transistor up to in-plane magnetic fields of 250 mT, an important step toward creating and detecting Majorana zero modes in this system. A hard gap requires a highly homogeneous tunneling heterointerface between the superconducting contacts and the semiconducting nanowire. This...

We introduce the synthesis of hybrid nanostructures comprised of ZnOnanocrystals (NCs) decorating nanosheets and nanowires (NWs) of MoS2prepared byatomic layer deposition (ALD). The concentration, size, and surface-to-volume ratio ofthe ZnO NCs can be systematically engineered by controlling both the number of ZnOALD cycles and the properties of...

Future quantum optical networks will require an integrated solution to multiplex suitable sources and detectors on a low-loss platform. Here we combined superconducting single-photon detectors with colloidal PbS/CdS quantum dots (QDs) and low-loss silicon nitride passive photonic components to show their combined operation at cryogenic...

Valley pseudospin has emerged as a good quantum number to encode information, analogous to spin in spintronics. Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (2D TMDCs) recently attracted enormous attention for their easy access to the valley pseudospin through valley-dependent optical transitions. Different ways have been reported to read...

A broad range of scientific and industrial disciplines require precise optical measurements at very low light levels. Single-photon detectors combining high efficiency and high time resolution are pivotal in such experiments. By using relatively thick films of NbTiN (8-11 nm) and improving the pattern fidelity of the nanostructure of the...

Superconducting-normalconducting-superconducting (SNS) transmons with 2-facet Al-shell nanowires are qubits compatible with magnetic fields above 10 mT. There are important correlations of the room temperature nanowire resistance with the chance of the qubit being measurable: at a resistance of 2−3 kΩ, the qubit is almost guaranteed to work. The...

Quantum computers can solve some problems exponentially faster than classical computers. Unfortunately, the computational power of quantum computers is currently limited by the number of working qubits. It is difficult to scale up these systems, because qubits are easily affected by noise in their environment. This noise leads to decoherence:...

Spin and topological-qubit based quantum computers require an easily scalable and highly sensitive method for readout and manipulation, for which Dispersive Gate Sensing (DGS) is a promising candidate [1, 2]. DGS enables sensing of single electron tunneling events in a mesoscopic system by measuring a reflected Radio Frequency (RF) signal from a...
