Researchers Discover Simpler Method to Run a Quantum Algorithm

Theories show how computing devices that operate according to quantum mechanics can solve problems that conventional (classical) computers, including super computers, can never solve. These theories have been experimentally tested for small-scale quantum systems, but the world is waiting for the first definitive demonstration of a quantum device that beats a classical computer.

Novel Technique to Record Quantum Mechanical Behavior of an Electron Within a Nanoscale Defect

Novel Technique to Record Quantum Mechanical Behavior of an Electron Within a Nanoscale Defect

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, University of California, Santa Barbara and University of Konstanz, Germany, have developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron contained within a nanoscale defect in diamond. Their technique uses ultrafast pulses of laser light both to control the defect’s entire quantum state and observe how that single electron state changes over time. [More]
