Creating a six-qubit cluster state
Physicists gain new insights into the remote control of quantum systems
An international collaboration led by physicists of the University of Vienna shines new light on the question of the resources required for achieving quantum information processing. The scientists demonstrate ...
Could some entangled states be useless for quantum cryptography?
'Quantum magic' without any 'spooky action at a distance'
The quantum mechanical entanglement is at the heart of the famous quantum teleportation experiment and was referred to by Albert Einstein as "spooky action at a distance". A team of researchers led by Anton ...
Quantum cat's 'whiskers' offer advanced sensors
(PhysOrg.com) -- A team led by Oxford University scientists has turned one of the key problems with quantum entangled systems - that they are easily ‘disturbed’ by their environment - into an advantage ...
Can we detect quantum behaviour in viruses?
(PhysOrg.com) -- The weird world of quantum mechanics describes the strange, often contradictory, behaviour of small inanimate objects such as atoms. Researchers have now started looking for ways to detect quantum properties ...
Computing in the quantum dimension
A huge consortium of European researchers is solving some of the fundamental obstacles blocking real quantum computing applications in the short term. At the same time, it is helping to pave the way to a quantum ...
