Strange New Phase of Matter Created in Quantum Computer Acts Like It Has Two Time Dimensions

Share This Post

A new phase of matter just dropped, and it has two time dimensions. Physicists created this new phase of matter by shining a quantum computer’s qubits with laser lights in a Fibonacci sequence. Each part of a Fibonacci sequence is the sum of the two previous parts, making it an ordered but non-repeating pattern. The flashing lasers essentially mimic two time dimensions being squashed down to one, making the new phase act like it has two time dimensions even though it only has one. Read full article here

The First Solar-Powered Car Comes at a Hot Price

The Lightyear O is a revolutionary electric car powered by the sun. Developed by a Dutch startup, the four-door sedan has over 50 square feet of solar panels on its roof and hood, generating up to 43 miles of energy a day. With production now underway in Finland, the car does come with a hefty price tag at $262,000, but the company hopes to introduce a more affordable version, the Lightyear 2, by 2025.

Magneto Protein Could Help Magnets Control Brain Circuitry

This groundbreaking research by scientists at the University of Virginia has demonstrated a novel way to control the nervous systems of zebrafish and mice using magnets. This method, called magnetogenetics, involves inserting genetic constructs into neurons to make them sensitive to magnetic fields, providing a more precise and non-invasive way to control and manipulate neural circuits than traditional methods. This could one day revolutionize the treatment of brain disorders in humans. Read full article here
