(UAZ.News) Quantum environments are difficult to create and maintain. Entangled quantum bit states, or qubits, usually last less than a second before collapsing. Qubits are also highly sensitive to their surrounding environments and must be stored at cryogenic temperatures. Researchers in the University of Arizona Department of Materials Science and Engineering have demonstrated the possibility…..
(Buffalo.edu) A University of Buffalo-led research team has developed a “traffic light” that can bring quantum waves to a halt. The advancement could be key to harnessing the potential of the atomic world, eventually leading to breakthroughs in computing, medicine, cryptography, materials science and other applications. n the study, the team “used the very atoms…..
(TechnologyReview) IBM’s newest quantum computer, due to launch next month, will boast 53 quantum qubits. The machine will be available for researchers and companies to run applications via the cloud. Google has a 72-qubit device, but it hasn’t let outsiders run programs on it; IBM’s machine, on the other hand, will be accessible via the…..
(IQTBlog) The Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) market is one of few real world markets the industry analyst’s much used hockey stick curve actually makes much sense. As quantum computers capable of breaking popular encryption codes get nearer and nearer users will become more prone to deploying PQC and that kind of consumer behavior necessitates exponential…..
(Bits-Chips.nl) The European Research Council (ERC) have awarded Starting Grants to early-career researchers at Delft University of Technology. Tim Hugo, Taminiau and Menno Veldhorst have landed the funding for their respective proposals “A quantum network for distributed quantum computation” and “Quantum information transfer between hole spins and topological states”. Daan Brinks is receiving a Starting…..
(SpectrumIEEE) Boston-based Aliro Technologies emerged from stealth mode this week to announce its hardware-independent, cloud-ready platform that will enable software developers to take advantage of the power of quantum computing more efficiently and accurately Aliro revealed that it had attracted US $2.7 million from investors that include Crosslink Ventures, Flybridge Capital Partners, and Samsung NEXT’s…..
(ITTTEchnologyNews) Japan has long been a prominent name in the tech industry with the Walkman and many other benchmark tech-originating from the Japanese industry. Japanese government is now encouraging the tech companies and industries to innovate in the quantum field. While the world is struggling to make a breakthrough in this technology, japan stepping in…..
(EurekaAlert) Researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have coaxed photons into interacting with one another with unprecedented efficiency — a key advance toward realizing long-awaited quantum optics technologies for computing, communication and remote sensing. The team, led by Yuping Huang, an associate professor of physics and director of the Center for Quantum Science and Engineering,…..
(ScienceDaily) Researchers have built and demonstrated the first hardware for a probabilistic computer, a possible way to bridge the gap between classical and quantum computing. Engineers at Purdue University and Tohoku University in Japan have built the first hardware to demonstrate how the fundamental units of what would be a probabilistic computer — called p-bits…..
(Nature.com) Data encryption typically relies on the practical difficulty of a process called prime factorization. In this process, a huge number (represented by 1,024 or more bits) is decomposed into a product of prime numbers. Such a task is notoriously time-consuming for conventional computers and is estimated1 to be much more efficient for a future…..
