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]

Innovative Technique Directly Generates Cross-Polarized Correlated Photons on a Chip

Innovative Technique Directly Generates Cross-Polarized Correlated Photons on a Chip

Commercial devices capable of encrypting information in unbreakable codes exist today, thanks to recent quantum optics advances, especially the generation of photon pairs—tiny entangled particles of light. Now, an international team of researchers led by professor Roberto Morandotti of INRS-EMT in Canada, is introducing a new method to achieve a different type of photon pair source that fits into the tiny space of a computer chip.

Researchers Demonstrate a New Type of Qubit Control

Where are the quantum computers? Aren't they supposed to be speeding up decryption and internet searches? After two decades of research, you still can't find them in stores. Well, it took two decades or more of research dedicated to semiconductors and circuit integration before we had digital computers. For quantum computers too it will take technology more time to catch up to the science [More]
Experimental Protocol Proposed for Demonstrating Quantum Entanglement at the Macroscopic Scale

Experimental Protocol Proposed for Demonstrating Quantum Entanglement at the Macroscopic Scale

Quantum entanglement refers to the "pairing" of two subatomic particles in such a way that they form a whole quantum system. Interest in entanglement is increasing today, as it challenges the foundations of quantum mechanics itself, and is also key for achieving quantum information processing and communication. [More]
