Latest Kane quantum computer Stories
Scientists have taken the next major step toward quantum computing, which will use quantum mechanics to revolutionize the way information is processed.
A team led by engineers and physicists at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia, have developed one of the key building blocks needed to make a quantum computer using silicon: a "single electron reader".
Research allows control of a single electron without disturbing other nearby electrons.
A roundabout method of reading data can improve quantum memory.
An international team of scientists has performed the ultimate miniaturization of computer memory: storing information inside the nucleus of an atom.
Quantum computers that store information in so-called quantum bits (or qubits) will be confronted with a fundamental limitation. This is the claim made by Dutch theoretical physicists from the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) and Leiden University in an article recently published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
