Power/Performance Bits: Aug. 25

Speeding up quantum computing A team of physicists from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences demonstrated a new quantum computation scheme in which operations occur without a well-defined order. The researchers used this effect to accomplish a task more efficiently than a standard quantum computer. Moreover, these ideas could set the basis for a new form of quantum c... » read more

System Bits: April 8

Quantum photon properties revealed in plasmon particle For years, researchers have been interested in developing quantum computers—the theoretical next generation of technology that will outperform conventional computers that involves storing information in qubits rather than in bits used by computers today. One approach for computing with qubits relies on the creation of two single photons ... » read more
