Einstein HmmmThe rate at which quantum computing is hitting the media stream is ever-increasing. This piece is a collection of recent articles and reports covering various aspects of quantum computing from the lens of science and research. Mea Cubitt

Iowa State physicist wins early career grant to study nuclear physics, quantum phenomena | Sen, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy, works in a field called quantum chromodynamics, which is all about the forces that hold quarks together, and therefore hold protons and neutrons together, and therefore hold everything together.  Source: Iowa State University News Service. Iowa State University News Service  Iowa State physicist wins early career grant to study nuclear physics, quantum phenomena…

Breakthrough Test Results using New Superconductor Material Announced by Ambature | Ambature, Inc., a privately held company that designs superconducting quantum materials and devices, today announced test results using a new form of high-temperature superconducting material (a-axis YBCO) to generate a trilayer Josephson Junction (JJ) device. This type of a-axis YBCO superconducting material, when designed into JJ devices, enables simpler foundry fabrication, quantum device design, and high-performance analog and digital circuit solutions.   Source: PR Newswire.   Breakthrough Test Results using New Superconductor Material Announced by Ambature…

DTU researchers tighten grip on quantum computer | In a new groundbreaking work, researchers from DTU have now realized the complete platform for an optical quantum computer. The platform is universal and scalable, it all takes place at room temperature, and the technology is directly compatible with standard fibre optic networks. This puts DTU right at the forefront of the development.  Source: MIRAGE.   DTU researchers tighten grip on quantum computer…

Ask Ethan: Is There A Hidden Quantum Reality Underlying What We Observe? | Ever since the discovery of the bizarre behavior of quantum systems, we’ve been forced to reckon with a seemingly uncomfortable truth. For whatever reason, it appears that what we perceive of as reality — where objects are and what properties they possess — isn’t itself fundamentally determined. As long as you don’t measure or interact with your quantum system, it exists in an indeterminate state; we can only speak of the properties it possess and the outcomes of any potential measurements in a statistical, probabilistic sense.  Source: Forbes.   Ask Ethan: Is There A Hidden Quantum Reality Underlying What We Observe?…

Harvard-led physicists take big step in race to quantum computing | A team of physicists from the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms and other universities has developed a special type of quantum computer known as a programmable quantum simulator capable of operating with 256 quantum bits, or “qubits.”  Source: The Harvard Gazette.   Harvard-led physicists take big step in race to quantum computing…
