Researchers Discover Atomic Clock Can Simulate Quantum Magnetism
2013-08-09 11:33:49

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Researchers at JILA have for the first time used an atomic clock as a quantum simulator, mimicking the behavior of a different, more complex quantum system. Atomic clocks now join a growing list of physical systems that can be used for modeling and perhaps eventually explaining the quantum mechanical behavior of exotic materials such as high-temperature superconductors, which conduct electricity without resistance. All but the...

Resonance In 'Artificial Atoms' Control Quantum Communication
2013-08-06 12:26:15

University of Copenhagen - Niels Bohr Institute Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, together with colleagues in the US and Australia, have developed a method to control a quantum bit for electronic quantum communication in a series of quantum dots, which behave like artificial atoms in the solid state. The results have been published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters. In a conventional computer, information is made up of bits, comprised of 0's and 1's. In a quantum...

D-Wave Quantum Optimizer Quantum Computing

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Quantum computing company D-Wave Systems has made impressive inroads in demonstrating how their quantum optimizer can have real-world applications. The company has sold their system to Google and Lockheed Martin in recent months, and appears to have made another step forward in demonstrating that their machine is not performing classical simulated annealing. Annealing is a process in which a physical system slowly relaxes, and...

New Method To Distinguish Between Neighboring Quantum Bits
2013-06-18 09:01:59

University of New South Wales Researchers at the University of New South Wales have proposed a new way to distinguish between quantum bits that are placed only a few nanometers apart in a silicon chip, taking them a step closer to the construction of a large-scale quantum computer. Quantum bits, or qubits, are the basic building blocks of quantum computers - ultra-powerful devices that will offer enormous advantages for solving complex problems. Professor Michelle Simmons, leader of...

New Quantum Technologies Enabled With Spintronics Approach
2013-06-04 16:20:51

University of Chicago A team of researchers, including members of the University of Chicago´s Institute for Molecular Engineering, highlight the power of emerging quantum technologies in two recent papers published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. These technologies exploit quantum mechanics, the physics that dominates the atomic world, to perform disparate tasks such as nanoscale temperature measurement and processing quantum information with lasers. The two...
