Quantum Computers

Entanglement describes a very particular type of quantum state that is not attributed to a single particle alone, but which is shared between two different particles.   (Image: via   pixabay  /  CC0 1.0)

We Are on the Way to the Quantum Network

Physicists at LMU, together with colleagues at Saarland University, have successfully demonstrated the transport of an entangled state between an atom and a photon via an optic fiber over a distance of up to 20 km — thus setting a…

What Is Quantum Computing?

Quantum computers, if they ever get started, might help us solve problems, like modelling complex chemical processes, that our existing computers can’t even scratch the surface of.
