Latest Quantum Electronics Stories
A new type of nanoscale engine has been proposed that would use quantum dots to generate electricity from waste heat, potentially making microcircuits more efficient.
A team of MIT researchers has advanced the study of quantum dots and showed how to overcome some these barriers and even produce a better, more efficient quantum dot.
If quantum computers are ever going to perform all those expected feats of code-breaking and number crunching, then their component qubits---tiny ephemeral quantum cells held in a superposition of internal states---will have to be protected from intervention by the outside world.
Quantum dots are nanostructures of semiconducting materials that behave a lot like single atoms and are very easy to produce.
New process developed at MIT could enable better LED displays, solar cells and biosensors — and foster basic physics research.
