Latest Quantum information science Stories
Quantum technologies promise to redefine the landscape of information processing and communication.
A team of Chinese physicists have shattered the record for quantum teleportation, teleporting photons approximately six times further than the previous best.
A prominent theoretical physicist and the co-author of a book on quantum mechanics believes that research in the field of quantum computing is rapidly progressing, and that the technology is inching ever closer to becoming a reality.
The days of Moore’s Law, which says computer processing capability doubles every 18 months, could be coming to a close according to theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.
In the age of high-speed computing, the photon is king.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a quantum simulator that can engineer interactions among hundreds of quantum bits (qubits)—10 times more than previous devices.
Physicists of the group of Prof. Anton Zeilinger at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), the University of Vienna, and the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ) have, for the first time, demonstrated in an experiment that the decision whether two particles were in an entangled or in a separable quantum state can be made even after these particles have been measured and may no longer exist.
A new type of quantum bit called a "phase-slip qubit", devised by researchers at the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute and their collaborators, has enabled the world's first-ever experimental demonstration of coherent quantum phase slip (CQPS).
Quantum physicists have made a leap forward in subatomic particle communication by connecting two separate labs 21-meters apart using two atoms and a photon, according to a report published in the April 12 issue of Nature.
Scientists have overcome a major hurdle facing quantum computing: how to protect quantum information from degradation by the environment while simultaneously performing computation in a solid-state quantum system.
