Diamonds Help Speed Up Spintronics
2014-03-26 04:49:49

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from Ohio State University have demonstrated for the first time that information can flow through a diamond wire. Scientists are working to develop “spintronics” in order to make computers simultaneously faster and more powerful. Spin could be used to help transmit data in computer circuits, and the latest research shows just how viable of an option diamonds could be. The team wrote in the journal Nature...

Cryptography Scheme Secured By Quantum Physics
2014-03-12 14:30:34

Centre for Quantum Technologies The way we secure digital transactions could soon change. An international team has demonstrated a form of quantum cryptography that can protect people doing business with others they may not know or trust – a situation encountered often on the internet and in everyday life, for example at a bank's ATM. "Having quantum cryptography to hand is a realistic prospect, I think. I expect that quantum technologies will gradually become integrated with existing...

D-Wave Chip Passes Rigorous Tests
2014-03-05 13:50:44

University of Southern California With cutting-edge technology, sometimes the first step scientists face is just making sure it actually works as intended. The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is home to the USC-Lockheed Martin Quantum Computing Center (QCC), a super-cooled, magnetically shielded facility specially built to house the first commercially available quantum computing processors – devices so advanced that there are only two in use outside the Canadian lab where they were...

Quantum Technology The Next Level Of NSA Snooping
2014-02-01 04:37:32

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Over the past several months, news has continued to leak about the extent that the US National Security Agency (NSA) has gone to spy on the public both abroad and domestic. Much of the news has stemmed from documents revealed by NSA contractor Edward Snowden. While the Obama administration has made statements that the NSA will back off from its surveillance efforts, news has come out that the government agency is developing new tactics to...

Quantum Physics May Make Secure, Single-use Computer Memories
2014-01-16 14:47:31

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Computer security systems may one day get a boost from quantum physics, as a result of recent research from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Computer scientist Yi-Kai Liu has devised away to make a security device that has proved notoriously difficult to build—a "one-shot" memory unit, whose contents can be read only a single time. The research, which Liu is presenting at this week's Innovations in...

NSA Builds Encryption Busting Super Computer
2014-01-03 11:20:30

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online On Thursday The Washington Post reported that the National Security Agency (NSA) is now developing a computer that, if successful, could break into nearly every type of encryption that currently exists. This would include encryption programs used to protect banking, medical, business and government records throughout the world. The Washington Post attributes these findings to documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward...

Popular television shows such as “Doctor Who” have brought the idea of time travel into the vernacular of popular culture. But problem of time travel is even more complicated than one might think. LSU’s Mark Wilde has shown that it would theoretically be possible for time travelers to copy quantum data from the past. It all started when David Deutsch, a pioneer of quantum computing and a physicist at Oxford, came up with a simplified model of time travel to deal with the paradoxes...

Quantum World Record Crushed
2013-11-14 15:37:00

University of Oxford A normally fragile quantum state has been shown to survive at room temperature for a world record 39 minutes, overcoming a key barrier towards building ultrafast quantum computers. An international team including Stephanie Simmons of Oxford University, UK, report in this week's Science a test performed by Mike Thewalt of Simon Fraser University, Canada, and colleagues. In conventional computers data is stored as a string of 1s and 0s. In the experiment quantum bits...

Study Provides Unprecedented Details On Ultrafast Processes In Diamond Nitrogen Vacancy Centers
2013-11-04 16:26:12

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory From supersensitive detections of magnetic fields to quantum information processing, the key to a number of highly promising advanced technologies may lie in one of the most common defects in diamonds. Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have taken an important step towards unlocking this key with the first ever detailed look at critical ultrafast processes in these...

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...
