* Resolving Quanta in Magnet
  Quantitative characterization of a quantum behavior in a magnet using an
  elementary device for quantum computing

  The research group led by Professor Yasunobu Nakamura at the Research
  Center of Advanced Science and Technology, and Research Associate Yutaka
  Tabuchi demonstrated that quanta of the collective spin motions in a
  magnet, called a "magnon", could be resolved. Up to now, there was no
  existing method to quantify the collective spin motions at the
  single-quantum level.

  The research group measured the number distribution of magnons excited in
  a ferromagnetic single-crystalline sphere by using a quantum bit based on
  a superconducting circuit (superconducting qubit) as a highly-sensitive
  detector. Superconducting qubits are widely recognized as an elementary
  device for future quantum computing.

* The first proof-of-concept model of salt-sensitive hypertension
  due to"pure"renal dysfunction
  Project researcher Kohei Ueda, Emeritus Professor Toshiro Fujita

  Hypertension is a major risk factor of cardiovascular diseases in Japan
  and excessive salt intake is well-known to play an important role in
  developing hypertension.

  The first proof-of-concept study about the importance of renal dysfunction
  on developing salt-sensitive hypertension by project researcher Kohei Ueda
  and Emeritus Professor Toshiro Fujita at Research Center for Advanced
  Science and Technology was published online in the "Hypertension".
