Researchers find qubits based on trapped ions offer a promising scalable platform for quantum computing
Simon's algorithm run on quantum computer for the first time—faster than on standard computer
A piece of the quantum puzzle: High level of controllability needed to explore ideas in quantum simulations
While the Martinis Lab at UC Santa Barbara has been focusing on quantum computation, former postdoctoral fellow Pedram Roushan and several colleagues have been exploring qubits (quantum bits) for quantum ...
Flying qubits make for a highly resilient quantum memory
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.
Quantum environmentalism: Putting a qubit's surroundings to good use
Where are the quantum computers? Aren't they supposed to be speeding up decryption and internet searches? After two decades of research, you still can't find them in stores. Well, it took two decades or more ...
Putting the squeeze on quantum information
Canadian Institute for Advanced Research researchers have shown that information stored in quantum bits can be exponentially compressed without losing information. The achievement is an important proof of principle, and could ...
Early computer oscillator could become a core part of quantum computers
At the dawn of the era of solid-state electronics, a variety of promising technologies were competing to supplant the then-ubiquitous vacuum tube. The transistor quickly proved to be the fastest and most ...
Quantum meets classical: Qubit fabricated with integrated micromagnet increases speed of quantum manipulation in silicon
Entanglement between particle and wave-like states of light resembles Schrodinger's cat experiment (Update)
Ultra-thin wires for quantum computing
Take a fine strand of silica fiber, attach it at each end to a slow-turning motor, gently torture it over an unflickering flame until it just about reaches its melting point and then pull it apart. The middle ...
Research team claims to have accurately 'teleported' quantum information ten feet
Google engineers open gates to Quantum Computing Playground
Superconducting qubit array points the way to error-free quantum computers
A fully functional quantum computer is one of the holy grails of physics. Unlike conventional computers, the quantum version uses qubits (quantum bits), which make direct use of the multiple states of quantum ...
