Sound waves let quantum systems ‘talk’ to one another

Researchers at the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory have invented an innovative way for different types of quantum technology to “talk” to each other using sound. The study, published Feb. 11 in Nature Physics, is an important step in bringing quantum technology closer to reality.

Identifying lower-energy neutrinos with a liquid-argon particle detector

An experiment at Fermilab has made a significant advance in the detection of neutrinos that hide themselves at lower energies. The ArgoNeuT experiment recently demonstrated for the first time that a particular class of particle detector — those that use liquid argon — can identify signals in an energy range that particle physicists call the “MeV range.”
