“In five years we want a competitive computer”

Germany is providing two billion euros for quantum computers. Government advisor Peter Leibinger explains what should be done with it. UIn the technology of tomorrow, fierce competition has broken out. Quantum computers are right at the top of the agenda – in America, China, Japan and Europe. The states invest large sums in basic research.The federal government has now provided a further two billion euros. There is now an ambitious roadmap for their use. Companies like VW, Zeiss, Trumpf and Böhringer Ingelheim are already looking for applications, IT companies like Google and IBM are already building the first computers.Second generation quantum technology is now making its way from research institutes to business. She no longer wants to use quantum mechanical effects passively,...

Siberian permafrost is becoming dry, partly due to rapid warming

Collaborative research groups such as the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) have revealed that the permafrost in Siberia is becoming more and more dry, partly due to the rapid warming of the region. The paper has recently been published in an English scientific journal as a result of research supporting the widespread impact of global warming around the Arctic.JAMSTEC’s field of surface material environment research and joint research groups such as the Institute for Space-Earth Environment, Nagoya University have data on the “gravity observation satellite” launched by the US Aerospace Agency (NASA) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in 2002. The amount of water (land water storage) contained in the soil, marshes and lakes of the permafrost zone of Siberia o...

Undeveloped Submarine Resources — Forefront of Research on “Undersea Manganese Deposits”

Did you know that Japan, which lacks terrestrial mineral resources and energy, relies on imports from abroad for most of it? However, in recent years, it has become clear from the results of a survey of Japan’s exclusive economic zone that a large amount of marine resources such as “methane hydrate” and “iron manganese crust” exist. If these can be put into practical use commercially, they may support the future industrial economy of Japan. In the “Marine Energy and Mineral Resources Development Plan” formulated by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, for example, “iron manganese crust” is planned to be commercialized by a private company by 2028. Surveys of these marine resources have been in full swing since 2011, but their properties, distribution, and formation process are ofte...

Elucidation of the neural transmission circuit necessary for the behavior of searching for a comfortable temperature environment Nagoya University Group

The neural circuit required for the behavior of searching for a comfortable temperature environment (thermoregulatory behavior) exists separately from the circuit that senses temperature and transmits it to the brain. A research group at Nagoya University has compiled these research results and recently published them in the electronic version of the English scientific journal. The research group has made it possible to contribute to the elucidation of the mechanism of heat stroke.The research group led by Professor Kazuhiro Nakamura of the Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya University obtained this research data in a rat experiment. In the experiment, two metal plates were placed side by side, one with a heat of 38 degrees and the other with a suitable temperature (neutral temperature) o...
