The interaction between atoms and light is well-known and has been studied extensively in the field of quantum optics. However, to achieve the same kind of interaction with sound waves has been a more challenging undertaking. In collaboration between experimental and theoretical physicists, Chalmers University of Technology researchers have succeeded in making acoustic waves couple to an artificial atom.

Electrons that break the rules and move perpendicular to the applied electric field could be the key to delivering next generation, low-energy computers, a collaboration of scientists from The University of Manchester and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found. They report a material in which electrons move at a controllable angle to applied fields, similar to sailboats driven diagonally to the wind.
Dell, Terascala and the Translational Genomics Research Institute are installing state-of-the-art computing and programing specialized for human genome investigations at the National Cancer Institute. The mission of the Oncogenomics Section at the NCI is to harness the power of high throughput genomic and proteomic methods to improve the outcome of children with high-risk metastatic, refractory and recurrent cancers.
Some mysteries of science can only be explained on a nanometer scale — even smaller than a single strand of human DNA, which is about 2.5 nanometers wide. At this scale, scientists can investigate the structure and behavior of proteins that help our bodies fight infectious microbes, and even catch chemical reactions in action. To resolve these very fine details, they rely on synchrotron light sources like the ALS at Berkeley Lab.

CAPTCHA services that require users to recognize and type in static distorted characters may be a method of the past, according to studies published by researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Nitesh Saxena led a team that investigated the security and usability of the next generation of CAPTCHAs that are based on simple computer games.
HP ProLiant Generation 9 (Gen9) Servers are designed to help users reduce cost and complexity, accelerate IT service delivery and enable business growth. They provide a vast pool of processing resources that can be located anywhere, scaled to any workload and available at all times. The servers are optimized for convergence, cloud and software-defined environments.
As scientific computing moves inexorably toward the Exascale era, an increasingly urgent problem has emerged: many HPC software applications — both public domain and proprietary commercial — are hamstrung by antiquated algorithms and software unable to function in manycore supercomputing environments. Aside from developing an Exascale-level architecture, HPC code modernization is the most important challenge facing the HPC community.
The National Science Foundation has awarded the University of Arkansas at Little Rock a $291,908 grant for the purchase of a high-performance data storage system that will be a first at this scale for higher education and research in Arkansas.
Intel Corporation unveiled its first eight-core desktop processor, the Intel Core i7-5960X processor Extreme Edition, formerly code-named "Haswell-E," targeted at power users who demand the most from their PCs. Intel's first client processor supports 16 computing threads.
As part of the Cray CS cluster supercomputer series, Cray offers the CS-Storm cluster, an accelerator-optimized system that consists of multiple high-density multi-GPU server nodes, designed for massively parallel computing workloads.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has recently implemented an enhanced data sharing service that allows scientists increased access to data as well as improved capabilities for collaborative research. In addition to data sharing, NCAR has significantly upgraded its centralized file service, known as the Globally Accessible Data Environment (GLADE).
Some two hundred scientists from more than 40 countries are researching what the next generation of ultrascale computing systems will be like. The study is being carried out under the auspices of NESUS, one of the largest European research networks of this type coordinated by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M).
SoftLayer bare metal servers are deployed in under 30 minutes and billed by the hour. Hourly servers provide the raw performance of physical servers with shorter commitments.
Silicon Mechanics, Inc. has launched four storage servers featuring end-to-end SAS3, including SAS3 controllers, backplanes, and drives, which allow for up to 12 gigabits per second (Gb/s) of throughput per port. Also available are two new SAS3 JBODs.
University of Hawaii at Manoa astronomer R. Brent Tully has led an international team of astronomers in defining the contours of the immense supercluster of galaxies containing our own Milky Way. They have named the supercluster “Laniakea,” meaning “immense heaven” in Hawaiian.
How do you prevent an earthquake from destroying expensive computer systems? That’s the question earthquake engineer Claudia Marin-Artieda aims to answer through a series of experiments conducted at the University at Buffalo.
Hummingbirds can hover so well they seem to float in mid-air. With the help of a supercomputer, Vanderbilt University mechanical engineer Haoxiang Luo has fleshed out some of the secrets of how hummingbirds hover, flight that's more similar to that of an insect than the typical bird.
IBM has announced significant advances in Watson's cognitive computing capabilities that are enabling researchers to accelerate the pace of scientific breakthroughs by discovering previously unknown connections in Big Data.
NVIDIA is calling on global researchers to submit their innovations for the NVIDIA Global Impact Award — an annual grant of $150,000 for groundbreaking work that addresses the world's most important social and humanitarian problems.
The 22nd International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference is the industry's Preeminent Event on Molecular Medicine, focusing on Drug Discovery, Genomics, Diagnostics and Information Technology. Spanning six days this year, the Tri-Conference includes an expanded program that includes 6 symposia, over 20 short courses, and 17 conference programs.
The 2015 Bio-IT World Conference & Expo plans to unite 3,000+ life sciences, pharmaceutical, clinical, healthcare, and IT professionals from 32+ countries. The Expo provides the perfect venue to share information and discuss enabling technologies that are driving biomedical research and the drug development process.
NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM Satellite provided a look under the hood of Hurricane Cristobal as it moved north and paralleling the U.S. East Coast. NASA's HS3 hurricane mission also investigated the storm. Cristobal is close enough to the coast to trigger high surf advisories.
The National Science Foundation has announced two $10 million projects to create cloud computing testbeds—to be called "Chameleon" and "CloudLab"—that will enable the academic research community to develop and experiment with novel cloud architectures and pursue new, architecturally-enabled applications of cloud computing.
Cloud computing is not only the latest revolution in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) world, but a key enhancer of innovation and economic development. Within the framework of the project CLOUDS, Madrid-based researchers have made crucial scientific advances in the state-of-the-art of cloud computing.
Trust is good, control is better. This also applies to the security of computer programs. Instead of trusting “identification documents” in the form of certificates, the JOANA software analysis tool examines the source text (code) of a program. In this way, it detects leaks, via which secret information may get out or strangers may enter the system from outside. At the same time, JOANA reduces the number of false alarms to a minimum.
