Scientists pinpoint the singularity for quantum computers

Researchers from the University of Bristol have discovered that super-powerful quantum computers, which scientists and engineers across the world are racing to build, need to be even more powerful than previously thought ...

New principle may help explain why nature is quantum

Like small children, scientists are always asking the question 'why?'. One question they've yet to answer is why nature picked quantum physics, in all its weird glory, as a sensible way to behave. Researchers Corsin Pfister ...

Two stopped light pulses interact with each other

(Phys.org) -- For the first time, physicists have experimentally demonstrated the interaction of two motionless light pulses. Because the stopped light pulses have a long interaction time, it increases the efficiency with ...

Quantum computing a step closer to reality

Physicists at the Australian National University (ANU) have brought quantum computing a step closer to reality by stopping light in a new experiment.
