Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online What Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance” could be our way into a 'Star Trek' future Watching the original 'Star Trek' series as a child, the most enthralling part of any episode was the moment they dissolved during teleportation on their way down to an alien planet. The science behind that at-one-time fiction shows it is now en route to becoming fact. The possibility of teleportation was first...

New research has demonstrated a way to make bismuth electrons and nuclei work together as qubits in a quantum computer. The discovery, published in Nature Materials, takes us a key step further to creating practical quantum computing which could tackle complex programs that would otherwise take the lifetime of the universe to finish. The collaboration partners are based in the University of Warwick, UCL, ETH Zurich and the USA Sandia National Labs. Information on our normal computers...

Griffith Uni researchers lead light breakthrough Research physicists have demonstrated the first device capable of amplifying the information in a single particle of light without adding noise. The research collaboration, involving Griffith University, The University of Queensland and University of Science and Technology of China, was able to amplify the noisy quantum state of a single photon subjected to loss, without adding noise in the process; in fact, their amplification reduced...

A research team from the University of Bristol's Centre for Quantum Photonics (CQP) have brought the reality of a quantum computer one step closer by experimentally demonstrating a technique for significantly reducing the physical resources required for quantum factoring. The team have shown how it is possible to recycle the particles inside a quantum computer, so that quantum factoring can be achieved with only one third of the particles originally required. The research is published in...

Quantum Computing And Mechanics See Two Breakthroughs

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Two new studies, both published in Nature this week, outline incredible breakthroughs in the field of quantum mechanics. Australian engineers led an international team of researchers to create the first working quantum bit based on a single atom in silicon, potentially making another important step toward ultra-powerful quantum computing that theoreticians have dreamt of for decades. The team describes how they were able to read...

Quantum Teleportation Team Breaks The Distance Record

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers, including physicists from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences, has achieved quantum teleportation over a record distance of 143 kilometers. The experiment marks a major step towards satellite-based quantum communication. The team transmitted quantum states between the two Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife over a distance of 143 kilometers, beating the previous...

Word of the Day
  • An evil spirit; a devil.
  • A nightmare.
  • In astrology, the twelfth house of a scheme or figure of the heavens: so called from its signifying dreadful things, such as secret enemies, great losses, imprisonment, etc.
'Cacodemon' comes from a Greek term meaning 'evil genius.'
