    Function implementation and optimization in nanoscale and quantum-electronic devices become increasingly challenging with the growing complexity of the devices. Training a deep neural network with the physical device response and searching for the functionality in the digital device can ease this challenge.

    Epitaxial quantum dot charge spin qubits offer efficient quantum light links, but their coherence is limited by interactions with the nanoscale ensemble of atomic nuclear spins. Employing nuclear spins instead as its hardware, strain-free GaAs/AlGaAs quantum dots can constitute a fully functional two-qubit quantum register.

When nanotechnology focuses on COVID-19

In face of the coronavirus pandemic, the nanotechnology community has joined forces to provide tools and expertise to COVID-19 research efforts. Long-term experience in drug delivery, nanovaccines, immunoengineering, biosensors and platform technologies positions nanotechnology in a unique place to tackle some of the key issues in preclinical and clinical COVID-19 research
