Quantum physics theory is easier to understand than you think

Technology / Gadgets : Engadget (3 days ago)

Wrapping your head around quantum physics is tricky, no matter how well-educated you are -- if it were easy, there wouldn't be problems making quantum computers. However, researchers at the National University of Singapore believe t... Read Post

A bridge to the quantum world: Dirac electrons found in unique material

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (2 years ago)

ANN ARBOR—In a discovery that helps clear a new path toward quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have found elusive Dirac electrons in a superconducting material. Quantum computers use atoms themselves to perform pro... Read Post

'Fibonacci quasiparticle' could form basis of future quantum computers

Academics / General Science : Physorg Features (last week)

(—Topological quantum computing (TQC) is a newer type of quantum computing that uses "braids" of particle tracks, rather than actual particles such as ions and electrons, as the qubits to implement computations. Using braid... Read Post
