Current Research Project

IBM-HBCU Quantum Center Awarded Project: Dr. Tianxi Zhang has been awarded by the IBM-HBCU Quantum Center for the proposal entitled “Investigation on Characteristics of Josephson Pulses”. The total award value is $83,815 for the year 2022-2023. It supports PI, Dr. Zhang, as a Faculty from AAMU to join the IBM founded HBCU Quantum Center, and one graduate and two undergraduate student participants to carry out the research in the field of quantum information, science, and engineering (QISE). The Josephson junction, formed by separating two superconductors with a thin insulator barrier, is considered as a good candidate for the construction of quantum bits (qubits) for a quantum computer. IBM is building up the largest superconducting quantum computer with hundreds of Josephson junction superconducting qubits. The Josephson pulses can be used for the digit control and study of it plays an important role in the development of quantum computing and technology.

  • Developed many new creative models, mechanisms, and theories in broad areas of physics:
  1. A new cosmological model called black hole universe that explains all existing observations and overcomes cosmic difficulties without any hypothetical entities.
  2. A five-dimensional fully covariant Kaluza-Klein theory that has successfully unified Einstein’s general relativity and Maxwell’s electromagnetism without including any unknown parameters but having important implications for strong field astrophysics

  7. A new gravitationless black hole model
  8. A new redshift-distance relation developed from Mach’s principle and light relativity that derives Hubble law and explains the redshift and luminosity distance measurements of supernova even if the universe does not expand and accelerate
  9. A new relationship between the cosmological redshift and luminosity distance with a redshift factor that has perfectly explained the measurements of supernova so that completely removed the need of dark energy
