Latest Quantum computer Stories
Popular television shows such as “Doctor Who” have brought the idea of time travel into the vernacular of popular culture.
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.
Advances in technology for computation and information storage always require to make the systems smaller and faster.
Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers
A normally fragile quantum state has been shown to survive at room temperature for a world record 39 minutes, overcoming a key barrier towards building ultrafast quantum computers.
From supersensitive detections of magnetic fields to quantum information processing, the key to a number of highly promising advanced technologies may lie in one of the most common defects in diamonds.
A breakthrough in quantum cryptography demonstrates that information can be encrypted and then decrypted with complete security using the combined power of quantum theory and relativity - allowing the sender to dictate the unveiling of coded information without any possibility of intrusion or manipulation.
Like any task, there is an easy and a hard way to control atoms and molecules as quantum systems, which are driven by tailored radiation fields.
Topology -- the understanding of how things are connected -- remains abstract, even with the popular example of doughnuts and coffee cups.
Google released a new mod called qCraft for its popular building game Minecraft which aims to teach players the basic concepts of quantum physics.
