Flash Physics: need-to-know updates from the world of physics
Different kinds of quantum computers encode information using their own wavelengths of light, but a device that modifies their photons could allow them to network
Today's selection of need-to-know updates from the world of physics
Author(s): Oliver Benson Researchers have transferred quantum information from one quantum dot to another dot 5 m away using photonic qubits as the relay. [Physics 10, 42] Published Tue Apr 25, 2017
Single light particles can be manipulated to form a mixture or 'superposition' of two colours at the same time.Quantum computing requires particles to be simultaneously in two quantum states, but the creation of two-colour photons r...
