New 'switch' could power quantum computing
Boston MA (SPX) Apr 17, 2014
Using a laser to place individual rubidium atoms near the surface of a lattice of light, scientists at MIT and Harvard University have developed a new method for connecting particles - one that could help in the development of powerful quantum computing systems. The new technique, described in a paper published in the journal Nature, allows researchers to couple a lone atom of rubidium, a metal, with a single photon, or light particle. This allows both the atom and photon to switch the quantum sta ... read more
