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

  • Sensor with 100,000 times higher sensitivity...
    on October 1, 2020 at 5:32 pm

    New research developed a new microwave radiation sensor with 100,000 times higher sensitivity than currently available commercial sensors. Researchers said better detection of microwave radiation will enable improved thermal imaging, electronic warfare, radio communications and radar.

    on September 29, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    A machine learning technique rapidly rediscovered rules governing catalysts that took humans years of difficult calculations to reveal -- and even explained a deviation. The team that developed the technique believes other researchers will be able to use it to make faster progress in designing materials for a variety of purposes.

  • Antiferromagnet lattice arrangements influence...
    on September 28, 2020 at 4:50 pm

    New research reveals that the nature of the boundary at which an antiferromagnet transitions to a state of disorder slightly depends on the geometry of its lattice arrangement.

    on September 28, 2020 at 4:50 pm

    New research has revealed how robust initial states can be prepared in quantum information systems, minimizing any unwanted transitions which lead to losses in quantum information.

  • To kill a quasiparticle: A quantum whodunit
    on September 28, 2020 at 1:37 pm

    Quasiparticles die young, lasting far, far less than a second. Why? A new Monash University study finds a culprit beyond the usual suspect (decay into lower energy states). Identification of the new villain--many-body dephasing--may be key to controlling quantum effects such as superconductivity and superfluidity.
