Scientists Shatter Quantum Computing Bit Life Record By Over Ten Times

Quantum computing will change our world. But currently, it's just about impossible. Qubits, the bits that power quantum computing, require crazy-cold temps to create, and they only survive about 3 minutes at room temp. Now, a research team has made room-temp qubits last for 39 minutes. That's monumental. » 11/16/13 10:00am 11/16/13 10:00am

D-Wave One Handles All Your Quantum Computing Needs (for $10 Million)

There's been a lot of talk lately about how close we are to quantum computing for the masses. Now, Canadian company D-Wave claims to have done it with their D-Wave One. Except, of course, that commercially-available really means millionaire-available. » 5/21/11 6:00pm 5/21/11 6:00pm

Scientists Successfully Teleport Quantum Information

Researchers in Japan and Australia have managed to get teleportation right. We're now that much closer to a future where quantum computers will be on your desktop, which is to say not very close at all but still. » 4/16/11 9:40am 4/16/11 9:40am

Northwestern Scientists Massage Qubits Into Working Better with the…

How about the qubit, huh? All quantum and two-faced and potentially paradigm-shifting the way we approach computing. It's amazing! Also amazing: What Northwestern University researchers claimed to have done with it in a fiber-optic cable. » 3/13/11 4:00pm 3/13/11 4:00pm
