Quantum Computing

Light the Way to Quantum Computing.

Comments off 2213 Views0

Since the 1980s, researchers have been chasing after the quantum computer. Such a computer, they believe, could transform the task of information processing by handling data in novel, unprecedented ways. Whereas current computers can only process bits that occupy one of two states (0 or 1), one promising implementation of the quantum computer would rely on arrays of atoms in quantum states, called qubits.
Thanks to the strange nature of the quantum realm, qubits can occupy both the 0 and 1 states simultaneously and can also be entangled with, and thus closely influenced by, one another. Researchers are just beginning to explore the potential processing power that these qubits could unlock.


Yet, the quantum computer has always remained just out of reach because of various fabrication difficulties. For example, researchers are able to manipulate only a small number of qubits — on a scale of tens — as opposed to the required thousands or millions.

“Across all the groups in the world that are working on quantum computing, no one has developed a way to control a very large number of qubits such that you can use them to perform an actual computation of interest,” said Jeremy Sage, a member of the technical staff in Lincoln Laboratory’s Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group. “We can’t yet do anything that is both practical and better than what a classical computer can do.”


Sage and John Chiaverini, a senior staff member in Sage’s group, lead a team that is pursuing scalability by merging photonic integrated circuits (PICs) with a quantum computing method based on charged atoms, or ions, trapped above the surface of a chip. In 2016, in collaboration with MIT, the team demonstrated that PICs could be used to effectively manipulate the quantum states of ions by performing quantum gates. A quantum gate is the quantum version of a logic gate, which processes information by producing output bits (or qubits) based on inputs and a simple set of logical rules. The Laboratory team’s most recent milestone represents a breakthrough in the precise delivery of light from lasers to the trapped ions by significantly extending the range of wavelengths over which the PICs operate.


“We use lasers to rip off electrons, cool the ions down, and perform quantum gates,” Sage said. These changes to the ions that the lasers bring about are what would power the quantum computer. The ions that the team chose to use for their research are strontium and calcium, which react to specific wavelengths of light. “It turns out we need about 12 different laser colors that range from the near-ultraviolet to the near-infrared,” Sage added.

At the moment, most researchers shine lasers through windows in vacuum chambers to

strike the ions, but this approach leaves a lot of room for error. While it’s possible to hit a few individual ions precisely, scaling to the millions introduces a high probability of hitting the wrong one.


“What we’re trying to do is deliver the light in a different way by integrating the required light-delivery optics into the chip itself,” Sage explained.


“Our PICs distribute the light from several input lasers to an array of trapped ions,” said Paul Juodawlkis, assistant leader of the Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group, who leads the integrated photonics projects at the Laboratory. “At each trapped-ion site, we use devices called vertical grating couplers to redirect the laser light out of the PIC and focus it on an individual trapped ion.”

The vertical grating couplers are periodic structures that shoot light up and out of the chip, directly aiming it at and focusing it on the trapped ion, ensuring accuracy and mitigating the risk of hitting nearby ions.
The vertical grating couplers are periodic structures that shoot light up and out of the chip, directly aiming it at and focusing it on the trapped ion, ensuring accuracy and mitigating the risk of hitting nearby ions.


Instead of shining lasers through windows, the Laboratory team uses an optical input that is plugged into the chip. The input sends the lasers through the chip to the ion of interest via paths called waveguides that are specific to each wavelength of light. When the light has reached the area on the chip that correlates with the targeted ion, it emerges through the vertical grating coupler out of the chip and triggers the ion to change states.

The PIC technology needed to create this type of chip is already used extensively in the world of tele- and data communications. Yet these PICs are traditionally made of silicon, which absorbs the wavelengths of light required to manipulate the ions rather than allowing them to propagate through the chip.


Therefore, the research team developed alternate materials: silicon nitride and alumina. This year, they demonstrated a low propagation loss, meaning a small diminishment of the light as it is sent through the chip to meet an ion, while delivering light across a wide spectrum, from the near ultraviolet to the near infrared. The team’s work is the first-ever successful demonstration of a low-loss integrated photonics platform with light delivery over such a spectrum.

“We also demonstrated that the [vertical] gratings do indeed work,” said Suraj Bramhavar, another researcher on the team. “We are now working on ways to make these gratings more efficient so that more of the light we inject into the waveguide will reach the ion.”


“I think the ion-trapping field outside of the Laboratory is paying very close attention to what we’re doing here,” Sage said. “We are one of the leaders in this effort.”The Laboratory is uniquely capable of realizing this chip because of its expertise in integrated photonics and quantum computing, and the fabrication capabilities of its Microelectronics Laboratory.


The research team will continue working on refining the chip design and fabrication process.”There are a number of challenges that need to be addressed before a large-scale, useful quantumcomputer can be realized,” Juodawlkis said. “Estimates of when useful quantum computing will be available range from 10 to 20 years. An increasing number of groups around the world are working to solve the scientific and engineering challenges, and good progress is being made.”(July 9, 2018,/, Anne McGovern | Technical Communications Group)

So how exactly will we hail a flying taxi?

NASA is working with Uber on its flying taxi’s closer than you think!

  • Uber partnered with NASA on it its flying taxi project called Uber Elevate
  • Uber will be working with NASA to figure out traffic management for flying cars
  • Uber also said that it is aiming to trial the flying taxis in Los Angeles, as well as Dubai and Dallas-Fort Worth in 2020

 Uber signed a deal with NASA Wednesday to help develop traffic systems for its flying car project which it hopes to start testing in 2020.

The ride-hailing service published details of its “on demand aviation” ambitions last year which it has called Uber Elevate.

It is now stepping up its efforts to make the project a reality. Uber said at the Web Summit tech conference in Lisbon that it signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA for the development of “unmanned traffic management.” This is NASA’s push to figure out how unmanned aerial systems (UAS), such as drones that fly at a low altitude, can operate safely.

 Uber wants to make vertical take-off and landing vehicles. That will allow their flying cars to take off and land vertically. They will fly at a low altitude.

This is the start-up’s first partnership with a U.S. federal government agency. NASA is also working with other companies to develop traffic management for these low altitude vehicles.

“UberAir will be performing far more flights on a daily basis than it has ever been done before. Doing this safely and efficiently is going to require a foundational change in airspace management technologies,” Jeff Holden, chief product officer at Uber, said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Combining Uber’s software engineering expertise with NASA’s decades of airspace experience to tackle this is a crucial step forward for Uber Elevate.”

The NASA deal is the latest in a series of partnerships Uber has struck to get UberAir — which is what the new service is called — off the ground.

Earlier this year it said it was working with authorities in Dallas-Fort Worth and Dubai to bring its flying taxis to those cities. It also signed partnerships with aircraft manufacturers and real estate companies to figure out where the take off and landing sites for the flying cars could be.

Uber said Wednesday that it also plans to trial the project in Los Angeles in 2020 along with the already announced cities. The company expects the price of a trip to be competitive with the same journey if done using UberX. It is aiming to get the flying taxi service up before the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles.

New Weather Wizardry: Thanks to Ball Aerospace & Technologies.

Comments off 684 Views0

Weather may be global, but the impacts are local.

Looking for a more accurate weather forecast, especially after some major storms predicted for the Colorado Springs area fizzled while other fierce weather events seemed to come out of no where? A new satellite scheduled for launch in September is expected to help.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration expects the new satellite to be in operation by year’s end and help the agency’s National Weather Service unit produce more accurate mid-range forecasts, said Stephen Volz, the agency’s assistant director for its satellite and information service.

The first operation of the Joint Polar Satellite System will be to collect weather, climate and other data by year’s end and allow forecasters to generate more accurate and timely forecasts of severe weather three to seven days beforehand, Volz said while in the Springs for the 33rd annual Space Symposium, a four-day gathering of space industry officials at The Broadmoor hotel that attracts more than 11,000 people.

“While there have been flying polar satellites for 40 years, this is the first major generation upgrade since the early 1990s,” Volz said. “Every instrument on this satellite has been upgraded from the previous generation of satellites and is designed to give us better-resolution images in terms of color, spatial and other measurements and will even allow us to do cloud mapping at night, which is something we have never been able to do. It will also give us higher-precision measurements of temperature and atmospheric pressure that measure smaller areas.”

A research-and-development version of the satellite was launched in 2011 by NOAA, the Air Force and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and has been providing data and images for about five years. The new satellite, built by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp in Boulder, is the first of four that are scheduled to be launched during the next 14 years and will orbit the earth from to pole-to-pole 14 times daily, providing global coverage every 12 hours. The fleet of satellites are expected to cost $20 billion during the 30-year life of the program.

The new satellites replace a fleet that is still operating but is beyond its designed life span. They will allow the agency to identify wildfires sooner and track illegal fishing at night as well as produce more accurate forecasts from more detailed data and images they generate, Volz said.

“I can’t say your weather forecast will be better tomorrow, but the models we are providing are generating increasing better forecasts and will continue to improve,” Volz said. “However the variability in weather systems has increased and severe storms have become more frequent as the atmosphere gets warmer, causing more evaporation and more moisture in the atmosphere. The fact that more severe storms will occur is a virtual certainty, but predicting where they will occur is much more difficult. Weather may be global, but the impacts are local.” (content credit: Updated: April 3, 2017 at 7:15 pm, by Wayne Heilman,, The Gazette.)

Advances in RF Energy for Medical Applications

Comments off 2577 Views0

The benefits of electromagnetic energy for treating medical conditions have been recognized since the late 19th century. Today, although probably only magnetic reside­­nce imaging (MRI) is familiar to most people, many other medical applications exploit its unique abilities. They include reducing the size of tumors, aiding cardiac surgery, rejuvenating skin and treating muscular conditions. Medical systems based on RF energy are continually advancing, thanks in large measure to the transition from vacuum tubes to solid-state. Semiconductor devices such as LDMOS bring flexibility, enable advanced modes of operation and offer advantages at microwave frequencies.


The benefits of RF energy in almost all medical applications are gained from heat generated by some form of RF generator. Although the first recorded evidence of heat from any source used for medical purposes dates to prehistoric times, when heated rocks were used to reduce or stop blood flow (hemostasis), it was the prodigious inventor and scientist Nicola Tesla who first proposed, in 1891, that the application of electricity could produce heat in a human body. This was dangerous territory, as electricity caused electric shock. Shortly after Tesla’s results were presented, French physician and biophysicist Jacques Arsene d’Arsonval discovered that when the frequency of this energy was above 10 kHz, rather than shocking the patient, it caused the skin to heat. He proposed ways of applying this “high frequency” current to the body using contact electrodes, capacitive plates and inductive coils.

Table 1

The use of RF energy to heat deep tissue was first suggested by Austrian chemist R. von Zaynek, who noted that production of heat in tissue was a function of both frequency and current density. In 1908, German physicist Karl Franz Nagelschmidt coined the name “diathermy” for this, during what were the first extensive experiments on humans. Nagelschmidt is considered to be the pioneer in the field, writing the first textbook on the subject in 1913. Important developments in later years included those of Harvey Cushing and William T. Bovie, in which an electrosurgical device developed by Bovie was used to cause homeostasis during the resection of a vascular brain tumor.

The initial use of RF energy for diathermy was impeded by the lack of devices to generate it, as spark-discharge Tesla coil machines could reach frequencies of only 2 MHz. This type of diathermy was called longwave diathermy, because of the long wavelengths at these frequencies. The invention that broke this logjam was the vacuum tube, revealed in 1904 by John Ambrose Fleming, which ultimately increased the frequency to about 300 MHz (see Figure 1). Diathermy machines operating at this frequency were called shortwave diathermy. Like many RF and microwave technologies, the advancement of vacuum tube technology dramatically accelerated during the world wars, and new types of vacuum electron devices were created. The most noteworthy was the magnetron, which made it possible for emerging radar systems to generate high power at higher frequencies. One of the beneficiaries of the magnetron has been the medical profession, and many of the initial applications are still in use today and still use magnetrons for generating RF energy.


Like vacuum tubes before them, transistors further extended the reach of RF energy medicine. The earliest examples of transistor-based power generation appeared in the 1950s, although these devices generated minimal power and were extremely fragile. As their limitations were mitigated in subsequent years, semiconductor technologies such as the bipolar junction transistor (BJT) and vertical metal oxide semiconductor (VMOS) transistor were adopted for medical devices. Today, laterally-diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) power transistors are proving to be the preferred solid-state technology, producing power levels up to 1500 W. LDMOS transistors have advantages that make them well suited to be the alternative to their vacuum tube and transistor predecessors (see Table 1).

The primary benefit transistors have over vacuum tubes for medical applications is flexibility. The output power can be tightly controlled over their full dynamic range, which enables heat transferred to human tissues to be reduced when required. They support sweeping frequencies within an ISM band (from 902 to 928 MHz, for example), which helps to maximize the energy transferred to the body. For advanced systems that use multiple probes to combine wave fronts, the phase can be controlled to move the areas that must be targeted. While vacuum tubes require potentially dangerous high voltages, generated by large and heavy power supplies, transistors operate at 32 to 50 VDC. The biggest advantages of LDMOS transistors over previous semiconductor technologies are their ability to operate at higher frequency, such as 915 and 2450 MHz, and ruggedness. LDMOS power transistors will survive when almost all the transmitted energy is reflected back, because of an impedance mismatch such as a short or open circuit. This is important in medical applications because human tissue can present a variable load to the probe.

Originally, the capabilities of available RF power sources determined the frequencies where electromagnetic energy-based systems were used. The first operating frequencies were very low, with both frequency and output power increasing over time. However, as medical, scientific and industrial systems began to proliferate, it became necessary to specify areas of the electromagnetic spectrum for operation. These industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) bands for the U.S. are shown in Table 2, and are widely accepted throughout the world. Some countries use additional frequencies. Many other systems operate in these same bands, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microwave ovens and RF-based industrial equipment. With ISM bands unregulated, equipment must prevent or tolerate interference generated by nearby applications.


With the exception of MRI— which uses an intense electromagnetic field for imaging, not heating—all medical applications use RF to create heat. The electromagnetic field applied at high frequencies forces the water dipole to move with every cycle, creating friction between the molecules and generating heat. The frequencies at which this heat is generated and the hardware used to apply the heat largely determine the utility for specific medical uses. Generalizing about the use of electromagnetic energy for medical applications:

  • Changes in tissue occurring at the molecular level differ with frequency
  • Lower frequencies penetrate deeper into the skin than higher frequencies
  • Lower frequencies penetrate fewer types of tissue than microwave frequencies
  • Systems operating at microwave frequencies can more precisely direct energy to specific areas
  • Medical systems operating at lower frequencies have been in use far longer than microwave-based systems that operate above 900 MHz
  • The advantages of systems operating at microwave frequencies are gaining importance and becoming more thoroughly understood.

After the early efforts by Tesla and others suggested an interaction between radiated electromagnetic energy and the human body, the mechanism was further clarified and extended to all non-conducting materials. It was shown that the depth of penetration is determined by the frequency of the radiation and the insulating properties of the material. When microwave generators became available, it was demonstrated that because of their short wavelengths, specific areas could be targeted precisely. Greater penetration at lower frequencies (to about 2 inches) makes lower frequencies desirable for applications such as diathermy, in which the goal is often to soothe aching muscles. Microwave frequencies offer benefits such as faster heat delivery, more precise targeting of specific areas (a tumor, for example) and more accurate control.

At low frequencies, the electromagnetic field is generated between two or more electrodes, the shape dictating the characteristics of the field. The most common types of electrodes are rods and plates, between which the target material is placed. With increasing electrode distance, the voltage to maintain the electric field strength also increases, and the maximum distance between the electrodes and, thus, the maximum thickness of the target material is determined. When microwave frequencies are used, the energy is launched from a small emitter and guided through space to the target; a set of plates, used with lower frequency applications, is not required.

Arguably, there are dozens of medical applications that use RF energy, either alone or in combination with light or a laser at various wavelengths. However, they generally fall into the following categories: MRI, diathermy, ablation and skin rejuvenation. MRI will not be discussed, because its benefits are not derived from heat.
