SAN DIEGO, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- San Diego startup Qubitekk (qubitekk.com) will benefit from a $3M Department of Energy grant to speed the development of unhackable quantum encryption technology that will protect the country's power grid from cyber attack. Under the DOE's Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) program, the nation's premier program for grid security, Qubitekk will be working in partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Pacific Northwest...

Scientists Record Electron's Quantum Behavior
2014-08-18 03:07:24

By Jane Marie Andrew, University of Chicago A University of Chicago-led team of researchers has developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron contained within a nanoscale defect in diamond. Their technique uses ultrafast pulses of laser light, both to control the defect’s entire quantum state and observe how that single electron state changes over time. The work appears in this week’s online Science Express and will be published in print...

Rule-Set: Quantum Computing Meets Japanese Manga in an Epic Fantasy Where Reality Itself Comes Under Siege (PRWEB) July 16, 2014 In 2060 the notorious hacktivist group, Rule-Set (The One Set to Rule You All), threw the US presidential election by seizing control of NETS, (the National Election Tabulation System) and diverting three million votes from the winning candidate. In 2062, Rule-Set topped itself by hacking Colossus, the backbone of the first commercial immersive service. Via...

World’s First Photonic Router
2014-07-14 03:14:29

Weizmann Institute of Science Weizmann Institute scientists take another step down the long road toward quantum computers Weizmann Institute scientists have demonstrated for the first time a photonic router – a quantum device based on a single atom that enables routing of single photons by single photons. This achievement, as reported in Science magazine, is another step toward overcoming the difficulties in building quantum computers. At the core of the device is an atom that can...

Carefully fabricating nanofibers by heating and pulling may make for highly-efficient, optics-based, low-power atom traps WASHINGTON, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Take a fine strand of silica fiber, attach it at each end to a slow-turning motor, gently torture it over an unflickering flame until it just about reaches its melting point and then pull it apart. The middle will thin out like a piece of taffy until it is less than half a micron across -- about 200 times...

University of Innsbruck Even computers are error-prone. The slightest disturbances may alter saved information and falsify the results of calculations. To overcome these problems, computers use specific routines to continuously detect and correct errors. This also holds true for a future quantum computer, which will require procedures for error correction as well: "Quantum phenomena are extremely fragile and error-prone. Errors can spread rapidly and severely disturb the computer," says...
