Spin-orbit coupling of an electron in a lattice structure

A team led by UNSW scientists have significantly increased the coherence time of a spin-orbit qubit in silicon, allowing them to preserve quantum information for longer. These results open up a new pathway to scale silicon quantum computers.

Artificial reefs 12 months after installation

Man-made reefs can be used in conjunction with the restoration or protection of natural habitat to increase fish abundance in estuaries, UNSW researchers have found.

As the world warmed from the last ice age, a rise in carbon dioxide levels stalled for nearly 2,000 years. That's always puzzled scientists, but now they think they know what happened.

A flowering plant

New research shows, in a world first, a recreation of the evolution of flowering plants through time - a complete angiosperm 'time-tree'.
