The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has ordered the start of the second phase of the open space quantum cryptography project during a tour of the country’s Center for Quantum Technologies.
Ever tried defrosting your dinner by popping it in one identical freezer after another? Strange as it sounds, recent studies of indefinite causal order — in which different orders of events are quantum superposed — suggest this could actually work for quantum systems.
Researchers at EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology), along with colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz and other partners, have succeeded in precisely controlling the properties of graphene nano-ribbons (GNRs) by specifically varying their shape.
Scientists have built a tiny drum that both vibrates and remains still when struck by a drumstick made of light. The feat blurs the lines between the quantum world and the visible world defined by classical physics.
An international team, including Chinese researchers, has demonstrated a large-scale integrated quantum photonic circuit, which may pave the way for manufacturing massive components for the realization of an optical quantum computer, according to a study recently released by the University of Bristol.
Researchers from Google are testing a quantum computer with 72 quantum bits, or qubits, scientists reported at a meeting of the American Physical Society — a big step up from the company’s previous nine-qubit chip.
