A new study shows that heat energy can leap across a few hundred nanometers of a complete vacuum, thanks to a quantum mechanical phenomenon called the Casimir interaction. It could have profound implications for the design of computer chips.
Scientists have discovered that terahertz light - light at trillions of cycles per second - can act as a control knob to accelerate supercurrents. That can help open up the quantum world of matter and energy at atomic and subatomic scales.
A team of researchers from Singapore and Australia have implemented a prototype quantum device that can generate and analyze a quantum superposition of possible futures.
IBM has announced that its System Q One quantum computer has doubled in performance in each of the past two years. IBM is one of the big-name companies working to create a truly useful quantum computer.
IBM unveiled the IBM Q System One, billed as the first-ever quantum computer designed for businesses to put to their own use – though the company is clear that this is only the first step towards a broader revolution.
IonQ was founded on a gamble that 'trapped ion quantum' computing could outperform the silicon-based quantum computers that Google and others are building. As of right now, it does.
Scientists have now demonstrated for the first time that quantum computers do indeed offer advantages - they developed a quantum circuit that can solve a problem that is unsolvable using any equivalent classical circuit.
Physicists have now demonstrated the world-first simulation of a chemical bond using trapped ion qubits, one of the most promising pathways to full-scale quantum computing.
System lets researchers explore phase transitions in a quantum system.
The scientists observed the time quasicrystal and its transition to a superfluid time crystal at the Low Temperature Laboratory at Aalto University in Finland.
