Australian Engineers Create Functional Quantum Bit Based On The Nucleus Of A Single Atom In Silicon
2013-04-18 10:48:04

University of New South Wales A team of Australian engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has demonstrated a quantum bit based on the nucleus of a single atom in silicon, promising dramatic improvements for data processing in ultra-powerful quantum computers of the future. Quantum bits, or qubits, are the building blocks of quantum computers, which will offer enormous advantages for searching expansive databases, cracking modern encryption, and modelling atomic-scale...

No More Loopholes For Photons

A team led by the Austrian physicist Anton Zeilinger has now carried out an experiment with photons, in which they have closed an important loophole.

Einstein's "Spooky Action" Theory Could Be Tested Aboard Space Station
2013-04-10 12:02:29

"Spooky action at a distance" is how Albert Einstein rather famously described the theory of quantum entanglement. Until now, however, experiments attempting to examine this peculiar quantum mechanical phenomenon have been limited to relatively small distances on Earth.

Rubidium Vapor Stores Visual Images

A group of German physicists successfully transmitted a quantum security key from an aircraft to a ground station via laser, overcoming one of the technology’s biggest hurdles: the ability to transmit and receive quantum-based data over long distances.

Quantum Computers Are In Lockheed's Future
2013-03-24 06:27:59

A US-based aerospace and defense developer is looking to become the first company in the world to use quantum computing technology as part of its commercial business ventures.

Major Step Towards Quantum 'Internet' Signaled By Laser-like Photons
2013-03-19 13:30:09

The realization of quantum networks is one of the major challenges of modern physics. Now, new research shows how high-quality photons can be generated from 'solid-state' chips, bringing us closer to the quantum 'internet'.
