Single Electrons Tunneling Through Quantum Dots Power Rice Grain-Sized Laser

Single Electrons Tunneling Through Quantum Dots Power Rice Grain-Sized Laser

Princeton University researchers have built a rice grain-sized laser powered by single electrons tunneling through artificial atoms known as quantum dots. The tiny microwave laser, or "maser," is a demonstration of the fundamental interactions between light and moving electrons. [More]
Researchers Build Array of Single-Photon Detectors for Mounting on Optical Chips for Quantum Computations

Researchers Build Array of Single-Photon Detectors for Mounting on Optical Chips for Quantum Computations

A team of researchers has built an array of light detectors sensitive enough to register the arrival of individual light particles, or photons, and mounted them on a silicon optical chip. Such arrays are crucial components of devices that use photons to perform quantum computations. [More]
Peking University Scientists Cover Progress of 5/2 State in Paper on Fractional Quantum Hall Effect

Peking University Scientists Cover Progress of 5/2 State in Paper on Fractional Quantum Hall Effect

The Hall effect, discovered in 1879, is observable when a Hall voltage perpendicular to the current is produced across a conductor under a magnetic field. Although the Hall effect was discovered in a sheet of gold leaf by Edwin Hall, this effect does not require a two-dimensional condition. [More]
New TCL 55” 4K UHD Quantum Dot TV to be Introduced in Europe and Asia Pacific Markets

New TCL 55” 4K UHD Quantum Dot TV to be Introduced in Europe and Asia Pacific Markets

The new TCL 55” 4K UHD Quantum Dot TV that launched in the Chinese market in December will soon be available in the targeted overseas markets, such as Europe and Asia Pacific, according to TCL Multimedia and QD Vision. [More]
Novel Trap Captures Atoms along Ultra Thin Glass Fiber for Future Quantum Computer Networks

Novel Trap Captures Atoms along Ultra Thin Glass Fiber for Future Quantum Computer Networks

In order to develop future quantum computer networks, it is necessary to hold a known number of atoms and read them without them disappearing. [More]
Nitrogen Vacancy Center Diamond Defect Plays a Big Role in Design of Universal Quantum Computer

Nitrogen Vacancy Center Diamond Defect Plays a Big Role in Design of Universal Quantum Computer

In the race to design the world's first universal quantum computer, a special kind of diamond defect called a nitrogen vacancy (NV) center is playing a big role. NV centers consist of a nitrogen atom and a vacant site that together replace two adjacent carbon atoms in diamond crystal. [More]
Novel Method to Control Atoms for Future Quantum Computer Networks

Novel Method to Control Atoms for Future Quantum Computer Networks

In order to develop future quantum computer networks, it is necessary to hold a known number of atoms and read them without them disappearing. To do this, researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have developed a method with a trap that captures the atoms along an ultra thin glass fiber, where the atoms can be controlled. The results are published in the scientific journal, Physical Review Letters. [More]
Breakthrough Discovery Could Prompt Ideas for New Applications of Wave-Particle Duality

Breakthrough Discovery Could Prompt Ideas for New Applications of Wave-Particle Duality

Here's a nice surprise: quantum physics is less complicated than we thought. An international team of researchers has proved that two peculiar features of the quantum world previously considered distinct are different manifestations of the same thing. The result is published 19 December in Nature Communications. [More]
Future Quantum Computers Could be Connected to a 'Quantum Internet'

Future Quantum Computers Could be Connected to a 'Quantum Internet'

In the same way as we now connect computers in networks through optical signals, it could also be possible to connect future quantum computers in a 'quantum internet'. The optical signals would then consist of individual light particles or photons. One prerequisite for a working quantum internet is control of the shape of these photons. [More]
