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

  • Kick-starting Moore's Law? New 'synthetic' method...
    on November 18, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    Researchers have developed a new method for producing atomically-thin semiconducting crystals that could one day enable more powerful and compact electronic devices.

  • Quantum computers learn to mark their own work
    on November 18, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    A new test to check if a quantum computer is giving correct answers to questions beyond the scope of traditional computing could help the first quantum computer that can outperform a classical computer to be realized.

  • Physicists irreversibly split photons by freezing...
    on November 14, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    Light can be directed in different directions, usually also back the same way. Physicists have however succeeded in creating a new one-way street for light. They cool photons down to a Bose-Einstein condensate, which causes the light to collect in optical 'valleys' from which it can no longer return. The findings could also be of interest for the quantum communication of the future.

  • A milestone in ultrashort-pulse laser oscillators
    on November 12, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    With the demonstration of a sub-picosecond thin-disk laser oscillator delivering a record-high 350-W average output power, physicists set a new benchmark and pave the path towards even more powerful lasers.

  • A distinct spin on atomic transport
    on November 8, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    Physicists demonstrate simultaneous control over transport and spin properties of cold atoms, and thus establish a framework for exploring concepts in spintronics and solid-state physics.
