The first generation of computers used vacuum tubes. The second, transistors and the third, integrated circuits. Each new generation allowed computers to be faster, smaller and more energy efficient. Now, as the world stretches beyond the limits of integrated circuits, what does the fourth generation of computing look like-
Researchers in quantum technology at Chalmers University of Technology have succeeded in developing a technique to control quantum states of light in a three-dimensional cavity.
Advancing extreme-scale science is essential to the enhancement and improvement of many applications in computational science.
The world’s first full-scale planetary defence test – NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission – is designed to strike an asteroid and adjust its course.
There has been a lot of buzz about quantum computers and for good reason. The futuristic computers are designed to mimic what happens in nature at microscopic scales, which means they have the power to better understand the quantum realm and speed up the discovery of new materials, including pharmaceuticals, environmentally friendly chemicals, and more.
The Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE), a growing intellectual hub for the research and development of quantum technology, has added several new corporate partners: State Farm, QuEra Computing Inc., PsiQuantum, qBraid, and QuantCAD LLC. In addition, Le Lab Quantique (LLQ), a Paris-based think tank, will join as a nonprofit partner.
An SES-led consortium of 20 European companies, with the European Space Agency (ESA) and European Commission support, will design, develop, launch and operate the EAGLE-1 satellite-based end-to-end system for secure Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), enabling in-orbit validation and demonstration of next-generation cyber-security across Europe.
As a member of Q-NEXT, JPMorgan Chase will work toward advancing quantum technologies for fundamental algorithms, including in finance.
A team of researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University have devised a new quantum algorithm to compute the lowest energies of molecules at specific configurations during chemical reactions, including when their chemical bonds are broken.
Strange diamonds from an ancient dwarf planet in our solar system could lead to the production of ultra-hard machine parts, according to scientists.
