A qubit candidate shines brighter
In the race to design the world's first universal quantum computer, a special kind of diamond defect called a nitrogen vacancy (NV) center is playing a big role. NV centers consist of a nitrogen atom and ...
Improved interface for a quantum internet
A quantum network requires efficient interfaces over which information can be transferred from matter to light and back. In the current issue of Physical Review Letters, Innsbruck physicists led by Rainer ...
'Single-photon emission enhancement' seen as step toward quantum technologies
(Phys.org)—Researchers have demonstrated a new way to enhance the emission of single photons by using "hyperbolic metamaterials," a step toward creating devices in work aimed at developing quantum computers ...
Doing more with less: Steering a quantum path to improved internet security
Research conducted at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia, may lead to greatly improved security of information transfer over the internet.
