Quantum physicists in Innsbruck conducted experiments using a new device, which is currently considered to be one of the most promising developments in quantum physics: a quantum simulator.
NASA and Google are teaming up to launch a new laboratory that's focused on advancing machine learning, and which will utilize a speedy quantum computer.
In another step towards atomic-scale quantum computers, scientists at the London Centre for Nanotechnology have coupled single atoms to form quantum states by introducing individual silicon atom 'defects' using a scanning tunnelling microscope (the crucial nanotech tool that can both see and manipul...
Physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) experimented with quantum mechanical phenomena and demonstrated that it is possible to store qubit information in the form of vibrations by using extremely small carbon nanotubes.
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bristol, UK, and the University of Queensland, Australia, has demonstrated a quantum algorithm that performs a true calculation for the first time.
Progress towards creating the "quantum internet" and generally quantum computing was made by University of Innsbruck researchers managing to create an interface that enables a direct transfer of the quantum information stored in an atom onto a particle of light for the first time.
The single-photon detector is characterized by five convincing factors: 91% detection efficiency; direct integration on chip; counting rates on a Gigahertz scale; high timing resolution and negligible dark counting rates.
