Quantum computing is computing using quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement. A quantum computer is a device that performs quantum computing. They are different from binary digital electronic computers based on transistors. Whereas common digital computing requires that the data be encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states (0 or 1), quantum computation uses quantum bits, which can be in superpositions of states. A quantum Turing machine is a theoretical model of such a computer, and is also known as the universal quantum computer. — Wikipedia

  • How complex oscillations in a quantum system...
    on January 25, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    With a clever experiment, physicists have shown that in a one-dimensional quantum system, the initially complex distribution of vibrations or phonons can change over time into a simple Gaussian bell curve.

  • What's in a name? A new class of superconductors
    on January 25, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    A new theory that could explain how unconventional superconductivity arises in a diverse set of compounds might never have happened if a team of physicists had chosen a different name for their 2017 model of orbital-selective superconductivity.

  • Adding or subtracting single quanta of sound
    on January 25, 2021 at 4:23 pm

    Researchers perform experiments that can add or subtract a single quantum of sound -- with surprising results when applied to noisy sound fields.

  • Bringing atoms to a standstill: Miniaturizing...
    on January 21, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Scientists have miniaturized the optical components required to cool atoms down to a few thousandths of a degree above absolute zero, the first step in employing them on microchips to drive a new generation of super-accurate atomic clocks, enable navigation without GPS, and simulate quantum systems.

    on January 21, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    Researchers say they have been able to greatly improve the readout of data from digital memories - thanks to a phenomenon known as 'quantum entanglement'.
