Quantum Photon Properties Revealed In Another Particle, The Plasmon
2014-04-04 15:46:00

Jessica Stoller-Conrad, California Institute of Technology For years, researchers have been interested in developing quantum computers—the theoretical next generation of technology that will outperform conventional computers. Instead of holding data in bits, the digital units used by computers today, quantum computers store information in units called "qubits." One approach for computing with qubits relies on the creation of two single photons that interfere with one another in a device...

Article in the journal 'Applied Physics Letters' shows how to boost performance for commonly used devices The mineral molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), which, when solid, behaves in many ways like grease, has semiconducting properties that make it a promising alternative to silicon or graphene in electronic devices. It also strongly absorbs visible light, and so it has been widely employed in light-sensing photodetectors, which are used in a wide range of technologies, such as environmental...
