Three research endeavors aimed at fundamental challenges in health, information technology and water conservation have been selected for funding through the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund.
- Thursday, Apr 30, 2020Princeton researchers detect a supercurrent — a current flowing without energy loss — at the edge of a superconductor with a topological twist.
- Thursday, Apr 30, 2020In the Princeton experiment, the motivating question was what happens when the bulk is not an insulator but a superconductor. What novel features arise when superconductivity occurs in a topological material?

Electrons race along the surface of certain unusual crystalline materials, except that sometimes they don't. Two new studies from Princeton researchers and their collaborators explain the source of the surprising behavior and chart a course for restoring the speedy flow of electrons through these remarkable crystals, prized for their potential use in future technologies including quantum computers.

Imagine a world where people could only talk to their next-door neighbor, and messages must be passed house to house to reach far destinations.
Until now, this has been the situation for the bits of hardware that make up a silicon quantum computer, a type of quantum computer with the potential to be cheaper and more versatile than today's versions.

Princeton researchers have uncovered new rules governing how objects absorb and emit light, fine-tuning scientists' control over light and boosting research into next-generation solar and optical devices.
The discovery solves a longstanding problem of scale, where light's behavior when interacting with tiny objects violates well-established physical constraints observed at larger scales.
