A research team comprising Filippo Miatto and other physicists from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK, has discovered a new technique to reliably evaluate the information carried by photon pairs utilized for quantum computing and cryptography applications.
Scientists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Politecnico di Milano, and the University of California (UC), San Diego, have shown the first heralded single photon source generated from silicon, a significant step towards the realization of more realistic quantum information processing.
A team of researchers that include Silvano Garnerone, an IQC postdoctoral fellow, has shown a quantum speed-up to the PageRank algorithm, a key algorithm utilized by Google for ranking webpages based on their importance in the webgraph.
Mike Thewalt of Simon Fraser University and researchers at Oxford University and in Germany are one step closer towards the realization of quantum computers by harnessing the novel properties of their ultrapure and highly enriched silicon.
The Volkswagen Foundation is financing a materials science project, being conducted under the aegis of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, to demonstrate the technical feasibility of a quantum computer on the basis of e...

A study has turned upside down a typical way of looking at the connection between physics and information in quantum systems — with results that could lead to new insight into quantum computation.
Researchers have discovered that a process known as spontaneous emission that was previously seen as creating unhelpful noise in quantum data can be harnessed not only to protect the data, but even to compute.
In the age of high-speed computing, the photon is king. However, producing the finely tuned particles of light is a complex and time-consuming process, until now.
Thanks to the work by a team of engineers led by Profe...
