Control of Current through Nuclear Spins Advances ‘Spintronic’ Devices

Control of Current through Nuclear Spins Advances ‘Spintronic’ Devices

University of Utah physicists read the subatomic “spins” in the centers or nuclei of hydrogen isotopes, and used the data to control current that powered light in a cheap, plastic LED – at room temperature and without strong magnetic fields. [More]
Researchers Directly Entangle Three Photons

Researchers Directly Entangle Three Photons

Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon detectors developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). [More]
Researchers Discover Simpler Method to Run a Quantum Algorithm

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.
