Quantum Science 101
Informative articles explaining key concepts
Researchers from the Boston College’s Departments of Physics and Chemistry in collaboration with Harvard University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Center for Nanoscale Systems developed a new magnetically frustrated honeycomb iridate. It is much closer to the Kitaev spin liquid than its predecessors.
Quantum dots (QD) are semiconductor nanocrystals which exhibit quantum mechanical behavior. The interesting electronic properties of quantum dots arise from the specific size of their energy band gaps.
A quantum computer is a computing system that performs data operations by using quantum-mechanical processes such as entanglement and superposition.
Recent advances in nanofabrication have enabled the development of structures that can manipulate and localize light into volumes below a cubic optical wavelength with storage times of thousands of optical cycles. The emergence of such high quality nanophotonic structures has opened new opportunities for the study of light-matter interaction.
