The experiment consisted of shooting a laser beam at a beam splitter, which aimed the beam at a satellite traveling in low Earth orbit, which reflected it back to Earth.
Machine learning has returned with a vengeance. I still remember the dark days of the late ’80s and ’90s, when it was pretty clear that the current generation of machine-learning algorithms didn’t seem to actually learn much of anything.
The work was done in collaboration with QuTech, a Dutch company spun out of the University of Delft that specializes in quantum computing. QuTech has made significant progress in recent years toward developing more stable qubits.
The device is very small, approximately 10 by 0.7 micrometers and has an odd shape, like a Toblerone candy bar—long and thin with a notched triangular shape, with mirrors on either end.
All of this works thanks to graphene’s unique band structure, which results in the material having a negligible electronic heat capacity.
