Researchers create glass as strong as steel

California researchers make ultra-strong glass

A team of researchers from the Berkeley Lab and Caltech has developed glass that is tougher than steel, and not as brittle as traditional glass. This new metallic glass contains palladium that exhibits a high bulk-to-shear ratio. It thus bends rather than cracks, and sometimes goes beyond the fracture limits of some of the world's strongest materials.


Quantum hard drives coming thanks to new tech

Caltech makes headway in quantum HD tech

The California Institute of Technology believes it found a way to simultaneously transfer entire blocks of quantum information. It showed a proof-of-concept that can be applied in future quantum hard drives, and the team believes those products could compete with traditional, optical-based memory storage devices that use entanglement for access. The demonstration had the team transfer the state of four quantum memories to an optical signal and back again.
