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...

NSA Builds Encryption Busting Super Computer
2014-01-03 11:20:30

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online On Thursday The Washington Post reported that the National Security Agency (NSA) is now developing a computer that, if successful, could break into nearly every type of encryption that currently exists. This would include encryption programs used to protect banking, medical, business and government records throughout the world. The Washington Post attributes these findings to documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward...

Popular television shows such as “Doctor Who” have brought the idea of time travel into the vernacular of popular culture. But problem of time travel is even more complicated than one might think. LSU’s Mark Wilde has shown that it would theoretically be possible for time travelers to copy quantum data from the past. It all started when David Deutsch, a pioneer of quantum computing and a physicist at Oxford, came up with a simplified model of time travel to deal with the paradoxes...

Decay Used To Create Quantum Information
2013-11-25 09:47:26

University of Copenhagen - Niels Bohr Institute Usually, when researchers work with quantum information, they do everything they can to prevent the information from decaying. Now researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, have flipped things around and are exploiting the decay to create the so-called entanglement of atomic systems, which is the foundation for quantum information processing. The results are published in the scientific journal, Nature. "When working with...
