New Records For Silicon Quantum Computing Set By Two Australian Teams
2014-10-14 03:10:43

Provided by University of New South Wales Two research teams working in the same laboratories at UNSW Australia have found distinct solutions to a critical challenge that has held back the realization of super powerful quantum computers. The teams created two types of quantum bits, or "qubits" – the building blocks for quantum computers – that each process quantum data with an accuracy above 99%. The two findings were published simultaneously Monday, October 13 in the journal...

topological insulator
2014-09-24 03:00:48

Vince Horiuchi, University of Utah University of Utah engineers discovered a way to create a special material – a metal layer on top of a silicon semiconductor – that could lead to cost-effective, superfast computers that perform lightning-fast calculations but don’t overheat. This new “topological insulator” behaves like an insulator on the inside but conducts electricity on the outside and may pave the way for quantum computers and fast spintronic devices. The research,...

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The effect of quantum wavefunction superposition is used to create software search parallelism in a newly issued US Patent 8,832,139 B2¹ to Panvia Future Technologies Inc., Palo Alto, California. (www.panvia.us) In software form, the effect of quantum wavefunction superposition means that multiple separate data combined inside a single representation can be searched in parallel. Panvia's innovation is a way to encode the components...

Researchers Find New Way To Make Quantum Dots Glow Brighter
2014-09-18 03:05:47

American Institute of Physics Researchers from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the University of Oklahoma have found a new way to control the properties of quantum dots, those tiny chunks of semiconductor material that glow different colors depending on their size. Quantum dots, which are so small they start to exhibit atom-like quantum properties, have a wide range of potential applications, from sensors, light-emitting diodes, and solar cells, to fluorescent tags for...

Compute-Intensive Risk Analysis of Excel Models, Formerly a "Desktop Only" Option, is Now Available on Any Device Through a Web Browser Incline Village, Nevada (PRWEB) September 12, 2014 Risk analysis using Monte Carlo simulation is a popular form of advanced analytics for decision-making – often based on business and financial models in Microsoft Excel. Specialized Excel add-ins perform the compute-intensive simulation and statistical analysis. Doing this with web-based...

taxi cab ride sharing
2014-09-04 05:18:45

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Ride sharing apps for your smartphone are all the rage right now. Ride sharing services like Uber, Lyft, Ridejoy, Hitch and RideScout are popping up all over the world. The drivers are crowd-sourced, willing participants who have been background checked and vetted, and the payments are completely electronic (and sometimes involve ice cream) so no money changes hands. Most of the time, the ride is cheaper than calling a taxi. This is...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...
