German Physicists Build First Quantum Network

It was recently reported that scientists were able to overcome some of the problems with data degradation caused by computing in a quantum environment, and now Nature reports that physicists were able to build the first-ever working quantum network. Though, the the fibre optic network is in its infancy, as researchers reported a mere .2 percent accuracy in data that …

Quantum Computer Built Inside a Diamond

Diamonds are forever – or, at least, the effects of this diamond on quantum computing may be. A team that includes scientists from USC has built a quantum computer in a diamond, the first of its kind to include protection against “decoherence” – noise that prevents the computer from functioning properly. The demonstration shows the viability of solid-state quantum computers, …

IBM Advances Practical Quantum Computer

Scientists at IBM have recently have made big gains in quantum computer device performance, which may speed up the realization of a practical, full-scale quantum computer, according to a press release on the matter. A quantum computer makes direct use of quantum mechanical phenomena to perform operations on data, and could be able to solve specific problems much faster than …
