Quantum effects are indeed at play in the first commercial quantum optimization processor manufactured by the company D-Wave, according to scientists at the University of Southern California.
Alcohol, it turns out, is quite plentiful in space, and chemists think they might finally know why.
The realization of a fully-functional quantum network took a giant leap forward when researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology announced that, through the use of ultra-cold atoms and pair of lasers operating at optical wavelengths, they were able to entangle light with an optical atomic coherence composed of interacting atoms in two different states.
Google announced Thursday its plans to team up with NASA in the creation of a new laboratory that will house a quantum computer from D-Wave Systems.
By harnessing the unique world of quantum physics, scientists from the University of Vienna believe they have succeeded in prototyping an entirely new and efficient model of quantum computer: the boson sampling computer.
