Could aluminum nitride be engineered to produce quantum bits?

The leading method for creating quantum bits, or qubits, currently involves exploiting the structural defects in diamonds. But researchers found that the same defect could be engineered in cheaper aluminum nitride. If confirmed by experiments, this could significantly reduce the cost of manufacturing quantum technologies. Source:: Engineering News — ScienceDaily

Engineers to help improve cancer treatments with new proton imaging technology

Engineers are to develop new imaging technology that could provide more accurate cancer treatments. The technology will enable proton imaging of adults that can help improve the accuracy of proton therapy. Radiotherapy with protons is important in some cancer treatments as its greater treatment accuracy can reduce side effects. Source:: …

Device ‘fingerprints’ could help protect power grid, other industrial systems

Researchers are using the unique electronic ‘voices’ produced by devices on the electrical grid to determine which signals are legitimate and which signals might be from attackers. These fingerprints could also be used to protect networked industrial control systems in oil and gas refineries, manufacturing facilities, wastewater treatment plants and …
