The created multipartite ‘entangled’ array of ions is a resource for quantum computing.” Actual computing is then based on measurement of ions in the array in a prescribed order and using a slightly different measurement basis for each ion. “In this scheme, it is the time required to read out information from the ions that critically determines the operational time scale of the quantum computer,” Stock says.Stock describes the measurement component as vital to this model of quantum computing. Instead of exciting the ions and getting them to emit a photon and measuring the photon, Stock and his colleague instead devised a different way in which they were able to measure the quantum bit encoded in a calcium ion. “You can use an ionization process to speed up measurement, since the electron can be extracted faster from the atom than you can get a photon out of an atom. The extracted electron is then guided onto a detector by the ion trap itself.” All of this takes place on a nanosecond time scale. “By speeding up the measurement,” Stock insists, “we can speed up the operation capability of the quantum computer.”Stock points out that this quantum computing scheme would be impractical as far as taking over common use from classical computers. “The lattice would have thousands of ions, which would need to be controlled, and carefully stored and protected. It means that the computer would be relatively large and impractical.”Uses for such a quantum computer are not limited to breaking data encryption. “This process would allow us to take problems of great complexity and still solve them on a humanly possible timescale. This could provide the key to modeling complex systems – especially perhaps in biology – that we can’t solve now. This would be a tremendous advantage over classical computing.”More information: Stock, René and James, Daniel. “Scalable, High-Speed Measurement-Based Quantum Computer Using Trapped Ions.” Physical Review Letters (2009).

Citation: Ion trap quantum computing (2009, May 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-05-ion-quantum.html Stock, a post-doc at the University of Toronto, points out that ion trap quantum computing has made a lot of progress in the last 10 years. “Ions in traps have been one of most successful physical implementation of quantum computing in physical systems.” Stock believes that it is possible to use ion-trap quantum computing to create measurement-based quantum computers that could compete with classical computers for very large and complex problems – and even on smaller scale problems. His work on the subject, done with Daniel James, appears in Physical Review Letters: “Scalable, High-Speed Measurement-Based Quantum Computer Using Trapped Ions.”“One of the most important considerations in quantum computing is the fact that quantum computing scales polynomially, rather than exponentially, as classical computing does.” This polynomial scaling is what makes quantum computing so useful for breaking data encryption. In order to make data encryption more secure, one usually increases the number of bits used. “Because of the exponential scaling, breaking data encryptions quickly becomes impossible using standard classical computers or even networks of computers,” Stock explains. “The improved scaling with quantum computers could be one a biggest threads to data encryption and security.” While this sounds promising, Stock points this out that there are still problems with quantum information processing: “While scaling would be better with quantum computing, current operation of quantum information processing is too slow to even compete with classical computers on large factoring problems that take 5 months to solve.”The way ion-trap quantum computing works now – or at least is envisioned to work – requires that ions be shuttled back and forth around the trap architecture. Stock explains that this takes time. “As the complexity of problems and the size of the quantum computing to be implemented increases, the time issue becomes even more important. We wanted to figure out how we could change the time scale,” Stock explains. “We found that we could speed up the processing by using an array of trapped ions and by parallelizing entangling operations.” (PhysOrg.com) — “Right now, classical computers are faster than quantum computers,” René Stock tells PhysOrg.com. “The goal of quantum computing is to eventually speed up the time scale of solving certain important problems, such as factoring and data search, so that quantum computing can not only compete with, but far outperform, classical computing on large scale problems. One of the most promising ways to possibly do this is with ion traps.”

David Jaffe, with the Broad Institute reported to an audience at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting in Florida last week that he has been asked by Oxford Nanopore to try out the new the device, called the MinION, and has found it to be promising. Explore further Oxford Nanopore Technologies created a stir in the biological sciences world in 2012 when representatives for the company announced that its research team had successfully created a sequencing device based on nanopore technology and that an inexpensive prototype would be delivered to researchers outside the company soon thereafter. The company apparently ran into difficulty ramping up its pore technology and had to find some alternative materials—thus the two year delay.Nanopore sequencing is where single strands of DNA are pulled through a pore—as each base pair passes through the pore its conductivity is measured—information that can be used for identification by a computer. The advantage of this approach is that at least in principle, any strand length can be sequenced.The MinION isn’t for sale yet—at this time the company is making prototypes available to a select few notables in the genome sequencing field—each will have to pony up $1000 as a down-payment for the honor. The device plugs into a port on a computer, which does the processing. Along with the device, which has been compared to the size of a pack of gum, Oxford Nanopore Technologies will send along DNA samples that researchers can use to learn how to use the new device—after that, they can sequence anything they want. In testing strands of two types of bacterial DNA sent to him, Jaffe reports having mixed results —long stretches of data were obtained correctly in some cases, but in others there were some errors. In order to assemble the entire genome of a type of bacteria, for example, he had to also use a sequencing device made by another company. He noted that he is optimistic about the device, however, as reps from Oxford Nanopore have assured him that error rates can be reduced using certain techniques even as improvements to the device are being worked out back at the lab.If the error rates using the MinION can be reduced to a practical level, the device could mark a turning point in gemone sequencing as it would be a device that could be carried and used for fieldwork. And though the cost of such a device has not been announced, Oxford Nanopore has repeatedly used terms such as inexpensive and affordable to describe it, indicating it will cost much less than other sequencing devices currently on the marker, once it’s ready for sale.

They found that the NHC bound to gold forms an adatom that then traverses the gold surface in a ballbot-type motion. Their report appeared in a recent issue of Nature Chemistry.NHCs form a particularly strong bond with gold because of the sp2 hybridized lone pair of electrons on the carbon atom (See figure of NHCs above). Studies have shown that NHCs can be used to form particularly stable self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on gold surfaces and can even be modified after formation of the monolayer, but these studies are difficult to compare with each other because they do not have similar R groups.The nitrogen-substituted R groups play a significant role in the behavior of the NHCs. Bulky R groups prohibit dimerization but may affect the stability of monolayer formation. Also because the nitrogen atoms are part of an aromatic ring, they serve as electron donors to the substituents. The type of substituent affects the electronics of the molecule.In this study, Wang et al. used three different NHCs that were synthesized in the Glorius group, each of which had R groups that had previously been studied and represented a range of steric and electronic properties. These groups include IMes which has 2,4,6 trimethyl phenyl rings as the N-substituents; IPr which has 2,6-diisopropylphenyl substituents; and IMe which just has methyl groups as the N-substituents. Play Credit: (c) Nature Chemistry (2016) doi:10.1038/nchem.2622 Beginning with carboxylate versions of IMes, IPr, and IMe, they deposited the NHCs onto the gold surfaces via ultrahigh vacuum vapor deposition. XPS confirmed that the NHC, not the carboxylate version, was bound to the gold surface. Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) showed that IPr and IMe made neat, controlled surfaces, while IMes molecules were less ordered. Citation: Self-assembled monolayers of NHCs on gold have ballbot-type motion (2016, October 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-10-self-assembled-monolayers-nhcs-gold-ballbot-type.html Journal information: Nature (Phys.org)—Self-assembled monolayers are molecules anchored to a surface. These molecules have been used to advance the fields of molecular sensors and electronics. Monolayers on gold surfaces are typically anchored by a thiol. One alternative to thiols are N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs). First isolated in 1991, NHCs have proved an important molecule for practical uses because it can serve as a ligand for transition metals as well as some main group elements. NHCs have also been used for organocatalysis, cross-coupling reactions, and pharmaceuticals. This document is subject to copyright.

Credit: (c) Nature Chemistry (2016) doi:10.1038/nchem.2622 At various surface coverage densities, the IPr surface would form islands that broke apart and recombined. This indicated that the surface was mobile, but there was no change to morphology of the gold surface. Despite this mobility, the bond between the NHC and the gold surface proved to be highly stable at high temperatures.This behavior may be explained by the formation of adatoms, or the interaction of one NHC molecule with one gold atom. This adatom then moves around the surface as one entity, which the authors liken to ballbot movement. They confirmed this structure by looking at the height of the IPr monolayers.DFT calculations helped to explain how exactly these adatoms formed and moved. IPr and IMe likely bound to a gold atom that was pulled from the surface. Simultaneously, a gold atom from the second layer moves into the vacant hole. The gold atom that was pulled from the surface was bound irreversibly to the NHC to form an adatom that then readily moved across the surface. Additional free energy calculations looked at the effects of bulky R groups, specifically comparing IPr with IMes. Wang et al. found that the pi interactions between the phenyl rings and the surface play a role in adatom formation and mobility. They reasoned that there is a balance between steric hindrance, as with IPr, and pi interactions, as displayed with IMes. And, indeed, the non-bulky IMe compound, which was more mobile than IPr and IMes, was able to form dimeric and trimeric complexes with one gold atom.This study provides important insights into how NHC-Au monolayers form and behave. They seem to form a stronger bond than thiols with gold, but they also display mobility that is influence by the identity of the nitrogen substituents. The NHCs that tend to have weaker pi interacts with the gold surface readily forming adatoms that then move across the surface like a ballbot. More information: Gaoqiang Wang et al, Ballbot-type motion of N-heterocyclic carbenes on gold surfaces, Nature Chemistry (2016). DOI: 10.1038/NCHEM.2622AbstractRecently, N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) were introduced as alternative anchors for surface modifications and so offered many attractive features, which might render them superior to thiol-based systems. However, little effort has been made to investigate the self-organization process of NHCs on surfaces, an important aspect for the formation of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), which requires molecular mobility. Based on investigations with scanning tunnelling microscopy and first-principles calculations, we provide an understanding of the microscopic mechanism behind the high mobility observed for NHCs. These NHCs extract a gold atom from the surface, which leads to the formation of an NHC–gold adatom complex that displays a high surface mobility by a ballbot-type motion. Together with their high desorption barrier this enables the formation of ordered and strongly bound SAMs. In addition, this mechanism allows a complementary surface-assisted synthesis of dimeric and hitherto unknown trimeric NHC gold complexes on the surface.

Fictional detective Tintin today turned 86 and used the occasion to express his solidarity with the families of the Charlie Hebdo attack victims. The rallying cry for the birthday is “I am Charlie – Je suis Charlie and Tintin expresses solidarity with the families of the victims!”, according to his website.It says the occasion is marked by the most horrible recent attacks against, among others, employees of Charlie Hebdo. Tintin, the amazing reporter and sleuth with the iconic quiff created by Georges Remi, better known as Herge, appeared for the first time in 1929, January 10 in the comic strip called “Le Petit Vingtieme”, together with his trusted canine companion Snowy. Among his friends, Snowy comes first – the faithful companion with a generous spirit. Secondly, Tchang appears in the family circle and becomes a lifelong friend of Tintin and almost a brother. Thirdly, Captain Haddock whose debut was to come a good 10 years later is ready to sacrifice his own life for Tintin.
Kolkata: When France walk out of the tunnel one last time this FIFA World Cup to take on Croatia in Sundays final, pockets of the football crazy city of Kolkata will share the common prayer with the French footballers in Moscow vying to lift the coveted trophy for the second time.At Alliance française du Bengale, affiliated to the international network of the Alliances françaises in the world, around 50 expatriates and students will come together in front of a giant screen at 8.30 pm local time to cheer for their team. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed”For the final, we will screen the match at Alliance française du Bengale but only for our students, members and expats. There will also be some of the expats of other countries involved in the World Cup,” Fabrice Plançon, director of Alliance française du Bengale said.France played like a team possessed against star-studded Belgium in the semi-final on Tuesday, with centre back Samuel Umtiti netting a second-half winner.The Les Blues take on Croatia in the summit clash. The Croats came back a goal down to put it across England 2-1 in the second semi-final on Wednesday. Also Read – Naihati: 10 councillors return to TMC from BJPAround 25-30 expats and French supporters in the city gathered at a plush city pub, ‘Someplace Else’ in south Kolkata to watch Tuesday’s riveting game. “We were in the pub with French expats from the Consulate, some French volunteers and some Indian French fans here,” Plançon said.”Thanks to our goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, we won the game I think. It was some kind of magic actions from him. After the game since it was late and we all had work the next day, we went home happy.” A day before the final comes the French national day. Plançon said it will be more special because of the football team playing in the title round. “On the French national day, an annual reception will be given by the Consulate at Novotel. We will celebrate the national day on the eve of the final, so it will be very exciting this year. The next day, let’s see what will happen,” he said.Meanwhile in Chandannagar, located 35 kilometres north of Kolkata, which was once a French colony then known as Chandernagore, the civic body has decided to beam the live telecast of the final on a giant screen on the bank of the Hooghly river. “We have planned it near Rabindra Bhavan on The Strand,” an official of Chandannagar Municipal Corporation said.Some programmes will also be organised to highlight a slice of France in the city.”The city is historically so close to France. I feel everybody should get behind the French on Sunday,” quipped Plançon. An hour’s drive from Kolkata, Chandannagar in Hooghly district was one of the first outposts of India’s colonial past, a French colony rather like Puducherry.It remained an overseas territory of France in India for different time periods stretching over 250 years since 1673. It finally became a part of the Indian union in 1952, five years after the country won independence from British rule.The town of Chandannagar still has strong French cultural links, which draw tourists from the European nation. The Chandannagar Museum and Institute (Institut de Chandernagore) possesses a rich collection of French antiques, while the Chandannagar gate constructed in 1937 on the anniversary of the Fall of Bastille, has etched on it the slogan of the French Revolution “Liberté, égalité, fraternité (Liberty, equality and fraternity)”.A French cemetery stands opposite a large lake. Another major attraction is the Sacred Heart Church that was designed by French Architect Jacques Duchatz, and inaugurated in 1884. On the day of the semi-final, the excitement of France’s qualification was palpable across Chandannagar —from Taldanga to Urdu Bazar, from The Strand to the Hospital More.”Like it is for maybe a Messi or Neymar across Kolkata, here our heroes are (Antoine) Griezmann, Kylian (Mbappe). I remember I was young in 1998 and we did not sleep the entire night,” a Chandannagar resident said.France lifted the World Cup for the first time in 1998, blanking Brazil 3-0. In 2006, they reached the final only to be beaten by Italy on penalties.
According to the party’s Constitution, the National Executive has to be reconstituted every three years. The tenure of the present National Executive ends this month. The AAP came into being on November 26, 2012.The founding members – Prashant Bhushan, Yogendra Yadav, Ajit Jha and Anand Kumar – who were expelled from the party in April this year are to be replaced by new members.Christina Fami, AAP’s National Executive member from Tamil Nadu; Mayanak Gandhi and Subhash Ware also tendered their resignations from the body.

He also accused Kejriwal of running the party “like a dictator” and turning it into a khap panchayat. Bhushan accused the Delhi Chief Minister of “mala fide intention”. A day before AAP’s National Council (NC) meeting, he said the party had sent him a notice, informing about venue change from Constitution Club to a motel at Karnal Road at the last moment, which indicates mala fide intention. “When I asked for a list of the invitees, they did not respond,” he said.“The meeting being held tomorrow is patently illegal and full of mala fide intentions. We are members of the National Council of AAP and also the founding members of the party. We have been observing a fall in morals and values of the party for a long time and have proofs of the wrong-doing and illegal activities being executed by the party,” the senior Bhushan said.Bhushan also called the party’s 4th National Council meeting in the national Capital as illegal and unconstitutional, alleging that the party had suspended 40 members to curb dissent without a valid reason just before the meeting. Sources said AAP had served suspension emails to its founding members. Bhushan said he would challenge the party’s move before the Election Commission and also in court to declare the NC meet null and void.
Based on the life of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore and his extended family and friends, this semi-fictional book tries to capture several vignettes of Bengali society and its culture of that era. By doing so, it also gives us an insight into the larger canvas that was India.Jorasanko, a neighbourhood north of Kolkata, has been linked to Tagore’s name forever. The book tells, with great aplomb, the story of Digambari, Prince Dwarkanath’s wife, who banished her illustrious husband from her household because he went against the dharma of his Vaishnav ancestors by hosting receptions where meat and liquor were served. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThis uncompromising act of Rabindranath’s grandmother showed the existence of women of substance in a household that can be termed as Bengal’s first family. One is tempted to raise at least half a toast to this act of early rebellion, even though it was against the freewheeling lifestyle of a man who also hobnobbed extensively with Europeans. As painted by the author Aruna Chakravarti, the novel is largely set between the years 1859 and 1902 when a feudal mindset was slowly, reluctantly giving way to a liberal, westernised one. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveAt the hub of the transition was Jnanadanandini, the dynamo wife of Maharshi Debendranath’s second son Satyendranath Tagore. Jnanadanandini has been dignified with the title of the “first modern woman” of Bengal when modernism was still in its infancy. She was perhaps one of the strongest influences on Rabindranath, who would eventually go on to change the face of Bengali literature forever.Providing a deeper insight into Tagore’s life, the author shows how Rabindranath flourished under the influence of Jnanadanandini, though it was his other sister-in-law, Kadambari, who discovered his potential as a poet and helped him to free the muses trapped within. Chakravarti, an academic, creative writer and translator, took the milieu in which the poet-philosopher lived, anchoring her vivid imagination to what would have been, rather than what really was.The book explores Rabindranath Tagore’s engagement with the freedom movement and his vision for holistic education, bringing alive his latter-day inspirations, Ranu Adhikari and Victoria Ocampo, mapping the histories of Tagore’s women, even as it goes on to describe the twilight years of one of the greatest luminaries of modern times.Rabindranath’s wife Mrinalini was unfortunate in the way she has been viewed by his contemporaries and succeeding generations of his readers as an “unworthy spouse” of one of the greatest men of the land.But in the author’s eyes she was not an unworthy spouse if one takes into consideration the restrictions under which women of the time were placed. Which should mean that the women who rose above their calling in the household did it despite those extreme odds. The book also delves deeply into the disquiet in the poet’s heart, his sadness and melancholy. How unhappy he was when he found that his ailing daughter was not getting adequate care from her in-laws.Amidst the many unhappiness, the bard was also busy building his dream project at Santiniketan – Visva-Bharati – which would become one of the finest universities of the land. The book is a sequel to the author’s ‘Jorasanko’, published in 2013. Both are part-fictional accounts of life and times of Tagore and the many women who influenced him in the ancestral mansion.The background themes of this rich palette include the Bengal Renaissance, the socio-political scene of India, the British colonial rule and the proposal by Lord Curzon to divide the poet’s beloved land into two.The fiction merges so well with the colours of history that you cannot help but let your senses ride along, in a journey which is both rich and satisfying. Read the book in one sitting if you can – the age comes alive and grabs you for a lasting impact.
Pack away the warm hues of winter and say hello to lively corals and florals because it’s time to usher in the summer! Floral is one trend that can never go out of fashion, say experts.Floral prints can make or break your look depending on how you wear it and here are a few tips to go floral this summer: 1. Add colour: Pick your best old summer outfit and add it with some bright and freshening floral colours and floral prints to add new life to your dull boring wardrobe and make it more stylish and trendy. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf2. Bloom in bottoms: Floral print in your bottoms is your best bet if you do not want a splash of flowers all over you. You can team these with single coloured short kurti or tank tops. Long skirts and palazzos are making a stylish comeback so you can choose from those too. Just make sure that you keep the top simple.3. Splash some (floral) on the top: Kurti and Jeans will always be in fashion, whether it’s Anushka Sharma’s ‘Breakup’ song or Deepika Padukone’s airport look in Piku. Be a little creative with your tops – floral kurtis with your ice blue ripped jeans will be a best match to enhance your summer look. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive4. Floral scarf or dupattas: If you want to play safe and don’t want to go overboard with the floral print, then you can simply add a floral scarf or dupattas to your ensemble. A floral dupatta will go extremely well with a muted tone outfit. 5. Accessorise to add more charm: If you love everything floral, but want to do something beyond just outfits, then accessories are perfect for you. Floral patterns on necklaces, belts, hair clips, earrings, bags, bracelets, hats, footwear, and anything else that you can think of, can add vibrancy to even the simplest of looks. However, steer clear of too many accessories all at once, as too many colours will make you look like a flower pot. 6. Neon florals are also doing the rounds. It is perfect for someone who loves experimenting and making a statement.7. You can always style florals with the rest of our outfit or make the floral piece the main attraction. If you wear a blue and yellow floral skirt, always choose an existing colour in your skirt as your secondary piece of clothing. So, instead of pairing your floral skirt with a white top, pair it up with a blue top or a yellow top to get full marks on the fashion front!
