Probing the Ultimate Limits of Quantum Detection

Probing the Ultimate Limits of Quantum Detection

Suppose you only have enough energy to produce a dozen photons — what can you use them to see? In a new theoretical paper, the ultimate detection limits imposed by the laws of quantum physics have been derived, solving a decade-old open problem in quantum theory.

Discovery of a Two-Dimensional Carborane Cluster

A new form of carborane, a cluster of carbon and boron atoms arranged in an unusual flat pattern, has been isolated by chemists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. This discovery has overturned a 50-year old set of theoretical rules central to cluster chemistry, paving the way to a new family of chemicals.

The Chemical Midas Touch – Combining Gold with Natural Products to Create Novel Antimalarial Drugs

Malaria is one of the worst scourges ever known to mankind. The deadly disease, which is caused by plasmodium parasites transmitted by the female anopheles mosquito, remains a global public health threat despite concerted efforts to eradicate it. In 2016 alone, it infected 194 million people in Africa and caused 445,000 deaths. Read more
