Quantum Computing Advances At MIT - Trapping Rubidium Atoms In A Lattice Of Light
2014-04-11 04:29:35

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Scientists at MIT and Harvard University have developed a light lattice that traps atoms, a technique they say could aid in the creation of powerful quantum computing systems. The researchers used a laser to place individual atoms of the metal rubidium near the surface of a lattice of light, allowing them to couple a lone atom with a single photon, or light particle. The system allows both the atom and photon to switch the quantum...

Brake For Spinning Molecules
2014-03-13 15:39:05

Max Planck Institute The precise control of the rotational temperature of molecular ions opens up new possibilities for laboratory-based astrochemistry Chemical reactions taking place in outer space can now be more easily studied on Earth. An international team of researchers from the University of Aarhus in Denmark and the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, discovered an efficient and versatile way of braking the rotation of molecular ions. The spinning speed of...

Cryptography Scheme Secured By Quantum Physics
2014-03-12 14:30:34

Centre for Quantum Technologies The way we secure digital transactions could soon change. An international team has demonstrated a form of quantum cryptography that can protect people doing business with others they may not know or trust – a situation encountered often on the internet and in everyday life, for example at a bank's ATM. "Having quantum cryptography to hand is a realistic prospect, I think. I expect that quantum technologies will gradually become integrated with existing...

University of Southern California With cutting-edge technology, sometimes the first step scientists face is just making sure it actually works as intended. The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is home to the USC-Lockheed Martin Quantum Computing Center (QCC), a super-cooled, magnetically shielded facility specially built to house the first commercially available quantum computing processors – devices so advanced that there are only two in use outside the Canadian lab where they were...

Quantum Technology The Next Level Of NSA Snooping
2014-02-01 04:37:32

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Over the past several months, news has continued to leak about the extent that the US National Security Agency (NSA) has gone to spy on the public both abroad and domestic. Much of the news has stemmed from documents revealed by NSA contractor Edward Snowden. While the Obama administration has made statements that the NSA will back off from its surveillance efforts, news has come out that the government agency is developing new tactics to...

Quantum Physics May Make Secure, Single-use Computer Memories
2014-01-16 14:47:31

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Computer security systems may one day get a boost from quantum physics, as a result of recent research from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Computer scientist Yi-Kai Liu has devised away to make a security device that has proved notoriously difficult to build—a "one-shot" memory unit, whose contents can be read only a single time. The research, which Liu is presenting at this week's Innovations in...

Word of the Day
barratry
  • The offense of persistently instigating lawsuits, typically groundless ones.
  • An unlawful breach of duty on the part of a ship's master or crew resulting in injury to the ship's owner.
  • Sale or purchase of positions in church or state.
This word ultimately comes from the Old French word 'barater,' to cheat.
