  Researchers Create Means to Monitor Anthropogenic Global Warming in Real
  Time

  Associate Professor Yu Kosaka (Climate Science Research, RCAST) and
  Professor Shang-Ping Xie (Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the
  University of California San Diego) simulated in a computer model, for
  the first time, the realistic evolution of the global mean surface
  temperature since 1900. They identified the tropical Pacific natural
  variability as an essential "pacemaker" of the staircase-like global
  warming. The results of this research, "The tropical Pacific as a key
  pacemaker of the variable rates of global warming," was published in the
  journal Nature Geoscience.

  Single microwave-photon detector using an artificial Λ-type three-level
  system

  Research Scientist Kunihiro Inomata of the RIKEN CEMS, Professor
  Yasunobu Nakamura of RCAST (Quantum Information Physics and Engineering)
  and international team have demonstrated an efficient and practical
  single microwave-photon detector based on the deterministic switching in
  an artificial Λ-type three-level system implemented using the dressed
  states of a driven superconducting quantum circuit. The detector can be
  exploited for various applications in quantum sensing, quantum
  communication and quantum information processing. The results of this
  research was published in the Nature Communications.
