Although still in their infancy, quantum computers are set to deliver an incredible leap forward in computing capabilities.
Researchers at the University of New South Wales have each achieved records in processing quantum data with an accuracy above 99 percent and the storage of coherent quantum information for more than thirty seconds, both of which are essential for creating future super-fast quantum computers.
A recent experiment by researchers at the University of Rochester has managed to suspend a nano-sized diamond in free space with a laser and measure light emitted from it, which could help progress the field of quantum computing.
A newly developed optical transistor could be the key to higher-performance CPUs and a leap forward toward a practical quantum computer.
A significant step on the path to quantum computing has been taken by an international team of researchers who have succeeded in creating quantum bits within a semiconductor for the very first time.
