The finding is a major one for theoretical physics: Researchers from Irig, Institut Néel, and the Flatiron Institute (US) designed an algorithm that solves the quantum many-body problem to order 15. The quantum many-body problem describes phenomena at the atomic scale that standard approaches (“mean field approximation”) cannot model. One such example is the fact […] >>

  • Research
Digital and analog electronics could soon be sharing space with a quantum system on a FD-SOI substrate cooled to 110 mK. Sound strange? Researchers from Leti and Irig recently designed a circuit with these unusual characteristics and presented it at a conference in February. It is only at the proof-of-concept stage. However, it does meet […] >>

  • News
Grenoble startup eLichens finished rolling out 30 air quality monitoring stations in San Francisco in March. The stations’ sensors monitor fine particles, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and methane in real time. And, because they are installed 2 meters to 3 meters off the ground, the stations monitor the air that people are actually breathing. […] >>
