CQT Paper on Self-Testing of the Singlet Earns Journal Award

CQT Paper on Self-Testing of the Singlet Earns Journal Award

Imagine you buy a device that promises to make entangled qubits – pairs of photons, say, that you want to use for sending a secret message or doing a quantum computation. [More]
Innovative Laser May Play Crucial Role in Quantum Computer Development

Innovative Laser May Play Crucial Role in Quantum Computer Development

Dartmouth scientists and their colleagues have devised a breakthrough laser that uses a single artificial atom to generate and emit particles of light. The laser may play a crucial role in the development of quantum computers, which are predicted to eventually outperform today's most powerful supercomputers. [More]
Novel Mechanism for How to Make Universal Topological Quantum Computers

Novel Mechanism for How to Make Universal Topological Quantum Computers

So far it exists mainly in theory, but if invented, the large-scale quantum computer would change computing forever. Rather than the classical data-encoding method using binary digits, a quantum computer would process information millions of times faster through the use of quantum states of matter. [More]
Highly Charged Ions Hold Potential for Processing Quantum Information

Highly Charged Ions Hold Potential for Processing Quantum Information

The world is mostly neutral. That is, most of the atoms in our environment are electrically neutral. The number of electrons in the outer parts of atoms equals the number of protons at the centers of atoms. As one or more electrons are plucked away from the atoms, the remaining electrons feel a much stronger positive pull from the nucleus. [More]

Microsoft and Niels Bohr Institute QDev Partner to Realise Quantum Information

The next great leap in the computing world is expected to be quantum technology and, as part of their investment in research into quantum information technology, Microsoft is collaborating with Professor Charles Marcus, head of the Center for Quantum Devices (QDev) at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen.

Fractional Quantum Hall Effect Observed in Bilayer Graphene

Fractional Quantum Hall Effect Observed in Bilayer Graphene

Columbia researchers have observed the fractional quantum Hall effect in bilayer graphene and shown that this exotic state of matter can be tuned by an electric field. [More]
Superconducting Qubits and Devices Constructed Out of Silicon

Superconducting Qubits and Devices Constructed Out of Silicon

Theorists propose a way to make superconducting quantum devices such as Josephson junctions and qubits, atom-by-atom, inside a silicon crystal. Such systems could combine the most promising aspects of silicon spin qubits with the flexibility of superconducting circuits. The researcher's results have now been published in Nature Communications. [More]

Skirting Science: CQP Outreach Team Presents on Quantum Key Distribution

On June 19th 2014 members of the CQP outreach team traveled to Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College in Weston Super Mare to present at Skirting Science - a science day for schools across the county designed specifically to attract pre GCSE girls to STEM subjects. [More]
Magnetic Nanohose May Help Solve Technological Problems in Quantum Computing

Magnetic Nanohose May Help Solve Technological Problems in Quantum Computing

The magnetic hose designed by the researchers consists of a ferromagnetic cylinder covered by a superconductor material, a surprisingly simple design given the complicated theoretical calculations and numerous lab tests it had to undergo. [More]
