Texas Tech University Chemical Physicist Develops New Theory of Quantum Mechanics

A Texas Tech University chemical physicist has developed a new theory of quantum mechanics that presumes not only that parallel worlds exist, but also that their mutual interaction is what gives rise to all quantum effects observed in nature. [More]
Researchers Explore Qubits for Quantum Simulation on a Smaller Scale

Researchers Explore Qubits for Quantum Simulation on a Smaller Scale

While the Martinis Lab at UC Santa Barbara has been focusing on quantum computation, former postdoctoral fellow Pedram Roushan and several colleagues have been exploring qubits (quantum bits) for quantum simulation on a smaller scale. Their research appears in the current edition of the journal Nature. [More]
Interactions in Certain Quantum Materials Hold Potential for Better Electronics

Interactions in Certain Quantum Materials Hold Potential for Better Electronics

Scientists have discovered that interactions in certain quantum materials could naturally produce the effects needed for ultra-efficient computers and other electronics.The field of spintronics — a short form of spin transport electronics — seeks to understand and power electronic devices using the quantum property known as electron spin rather than an electron’s charge. Spintronics could lead to efficient circuits and electrical devices that do not waste energy through friction and heat. [More]

UNSW Australia Research Teams Create Two Types of Quantum Bits for Quantum Computers

UNSW Australia Research Teams Create Two Types of Quantum Bits for Quantum Computers

Two research teams working in the same laboratories at UNSW Australia have found distinct solutions to a critical challenge that has held back the realisation of super powerful quantum computers. [More]
Quantum Computing May Help Create Smarter and More Creative Robots

Quantum Computing May Help Create Smarter and More Creative Robots

Quantum computing will allow for the creation of powerful computers, but also much smarter and more creative robots than conventional ones. This was the conclusion arrived at by researchers from Spain and Austria, who have confirmed that quantum tools help robots learn and respond much faster to the stimuli around them. [More]
