What can you do with a single photon?
Researchers at the University of Maryland’s A. James Clark School of Engineering and Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) have demonstrated the first single-photon transistor using a semiconductor chip. The device, described in the July 6 issue of Science , is compact; roughly one million of these new transistors could fit inside a single grain of salt. It is also fast and able to process 10 billion photonic qubits every second.
UMD Researchers Increase Battery Capacity Using Aggressive Electrodes
Researchers at UMD have figured out how to increase a rechargeable battery's capacity by using aggressive electrodes and then stabilizing these potentially dangerous electrode materials with a highly-fluorinated electrolyte.

UMD Scientists Bridge the Gap Between Microelectronics, Biological Systems
