Physicists set new records for silicon quantum computing
Two research teams working in the same laboratories at UNSW Australia have found distinct solutions to a critical challenge that has held back the realisation of super powerful quantum computers.
Large-scale quantum chip validated
A team of scientists at USC has verified that quantum effects are indeed at play in the first commercial quantum optimization processor.
Physicists Show Theory of Quantum Mechanics Applies to the Motion of Large Objects
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have provided the first clear demonstration that the theory of quantum mechanics applies to the mechanical motion of an object large enough to be seen by the ...
Physicists find way to boot up quantum computers 72 times faster than previously possible
Press the start button, switch on the monitor, grab a cup of coffee and off you go. That is pretty much how most us experience booting up a computer. But with a quantum computer the situation is very different. ...
Diamonds are a quantum computer's best friend
A new kind of quantum computer is being proposed by scientists from the TU Wien (Vienna) and Japan (National Institute of Informatics and NTT Basic Research Labs).
Scientists build 'single-atom transistor'

Teleportation with engineered quantum systems
A team of University of Queensland physicists has transmitted an atom from one location to another inside an electronic chip.
Quantum age edges closer
(PhysOrg.com) -- The arrival of superfast quantum computing is closer following recent breakthroughs by an international team led by UNSW researchers.
Mathematical breakthrough sets out rules for more effective teleportation
For the last ten years, theoretical physicists have shown that the intense connections generated between particles as established in the quantum law of 'entanglement' may hold the key to eventual teleportation of quantum ...
Simon's algorithm run on quantum computer for the first time—faster than on standard computer
Quantum computing poised for new silicon revolution
A dramatic increase in the amount of time data can be stored on a single atom means silicon could once again play a vital role in the development of super-fast computers.
14 quantum bits: Physicists go beyond the limits of what is currently possible in quantum computation
(PhysOrg.com) -- Quantum physicists from the University of Innsbruck (Austria) have set another world record: They have achieved controlled entanglement of 14 quantum bits (qubits) and, thus, realized the ...
