Joint fellows’ publication on prejudice against ethnic outgroups

Two AIAS Former Fellows Isabel Kusche and Jessica L. Barker join different academic disciplines to critically analyse the conceptual framework of using evolutionary psychology as explanation for prejudice against ethnic outgroups. Their findings, published in ‘Frontiers in Psychology’ this week, highlights a need for including the sociocultural…

Image: Sketch of a possible physical implementation of the proposed circuit. Each colored box is a superconducting island corresponding to a node in a lumped circuit element model. Josephson junctions are shown schematically as yellow crosses. Bent black wires are inductors. The numbered colored lines are controls for readout and driving of the circuit: 1 and 3 are the flux lines for frequency tuning of the outer qubits, 2 and 4 are resonators capacitively coupled to left and right qubits, and lines 5 and 6 are control and driving of the two middle islands forming the middle qutrit.

AIAS fellows’ collaboration leads to concrete blueprint for a superconducting circuit

A scientific study conducted by current Fellow Nikolaj T. Zinner and Former Fellow David Petrosyan and collaborators in ‘Nature Scientific Reports’ has provided a concrete blueprint for a superconducting circuit that includes a three-level 'artificial atom'. The study outlines how a set of basic calculations can be done considerably faster than if…

Rethinking how cholesterol is integrated into cells

Cholesterol is best known in connection with cardiovascular disease, but cholesterol is also vital for many fundamental processes in the body. AIAS Former Fellow Bjørn Panyella Pedersen and collaborators have now presented a completely new, ground-breaking model for the integration and incorporation of cholesterol into cells, with great impact on…
