(Axios) New research shows how quantum computing can be used effectively on real-world problems. Researchers from the quantum computing company D-Wave and Google demonstrated that D-Wave’s system could simulate a programmable quantum magnetic system more than 3 million times faster than corresponding classical methods. “This isn’t some made-up example that is only designed to showcase the DNA of a quantum

(ScienceAlert) Research from University of Bonn in Germany has answered a fundamental question – how fast can a quantum process be? It’s a useful piece of information to know if you want to build a quantum computer or a quantum network, as it tells you some of the limitations inherent in the system. The team provided an easier-to-understand analogy which

(Phys.org) A team of quantum theorists at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) seeking to cure a basic problem with quantum annealing computers—they have to run at a relatively slow pace to operate properly—found something intriguing instead. Although our discovery did not the cure the annealing time restriction, it brought a class of new physics problems that can now be studied

(ScienceDaily) Using nanoscale quantum sensors, physicists from Switzerland, Germany and Ukraine have proposed an innovative new data storage medium. The technique is based on specific properties of antiferromagnetic materials that had previously resisted experimental examination. The project was coordinated by researchers from the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel. Antiferromagnets make up 90
