The large number of entangled particles could improve the accuracy of GPS and atomic clocks.
With mega companies like Microsoft, Google and IBM quietly investing in quantum computing development, word is starting to leak out that the out-there technology with the sci-fi name might be a part of our lives sooner rather than later.
Proposed anti-fraud technique would use lasers, nanoparticle strips and misbehaving photons.
In a recent experiment, the quantum state (the direction it was spinning) of a light particle instantly traveled 15.5 miles across an optical fiber.
For the first time, scientists have demonstrated silicon quantum technology capable of holding data with over 99 per cent accuracy.
Scientists used sound instead of light to harness an atom's energy.
Scientists have produced the first functional example of the elusive single-atom bit.
Bits of information disappeared from one location and reappeared at another. Continue reading →
