Latest Quantum computer Stories
Physicists at UC Santa Barbara have succeeded in combining laser light with trapped electrons to detect and control the electrons' fragile quantum state without erasing it.
An important step â€“â€“ one that is essential to the ultimate construction of a quantum computer â€“â€“ was taken for the first time by physicists at UC Santa Barbara.
The rules that govern the world of the very small, quantum mechanics, are known for being bizarre.
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".
Entanglement is a fascinating property connecting quantum systems.
Ever since audiences heard Goldfinger utter the famous line, â€œNo, Mr. Bond; I expect you to die,â€ as a laser beam inched its way toward James Bond and threatened to cut him in half, lasers have been thought of as white-hot beams of intensely focused energy capable of burning through anything in their path.
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bristol has developed a new approach to quantum computing that could soon be used to perform complex calculations that cannot be done by today's computers.
The PhD thesis by Carlos EcheverrÃa Arrondo, Doctor in Physics from the Public University of Navarre and entitled â€œOn doped semiconductor quantum dots and magnetic nanowiresâ€, studied the behaviour and properties of nanometric-scale semiconductor crystals.
Dr. David Awschalom, professor of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara has been selected as the recipient of the 2010 Materials Research Society Turnbull award for research funded in large measure by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
Physicists demonstrate means for quantum bits to communicate over long distances.
