Quantifying quanta
Elementary quantum-computing device used to observe quanta in propagating microwaves
------------------------------------------------------------
Professor Yasunobu Nakamura, Assistant Professor Yutaka Tabuchi, graduate student Shingo Kono at Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology, the University of Tokyo and its collaborators have demonstrated that magnons--the smallest units of energy, quanta, of collective spin motions in a millimeter-sized magnet--and the microwave photons in a transmission line can be measured as discrete units using a quantum-bit device based on a superconducting circuit as a detector. The current results hold promise of leading to the development of new high-resolution sensor technologies in the future.

The proof of the contribution of mineralocorticoid receptor pathway in blood pressure maintenance during salt restriction
------------------------------------------------------------
Project Researcher Daigoro Hirohama and Emeritus Professor Toshiro Fujita at Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology, the University of Tokyo have demonstrated that the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR)-pendrin system, which plays a role in regulating fluid volume in vivo, contributes to maintaining normal blood pressure during salt restriction.
