Moving electrons around loops with light: A quantum device based on geometry: Scientists demonstrate versatile, noise-tolerant quantum operations on a single electron

Nanotech-Now - February 23, 2016 - 7:45am
While a classical bit found in conventional electronics exists only in binary 1 or 0 states, the more resourceful quantum bit, or 'qubit' is represented by a vector, pointing to a simultaneous combina...

Topological insulators: Magnetism is not causing loss of conductivity

Nanotech-Now - February 23, 2016 - 7:45am
Topological insulators appeared to be rather well-understood from theory until now. The electrons that can only occupy "allowed" quantum states in the crystal lattice are free to move in only two dime...

Researchers demonstrate 'quantum surrealism'

Nanotech-Now - February 23, 2016 - 7:45am
New research demonstrates that particles at the quantum level can in fact be seen as behaving something like billiard balls rolling along a table, and not merely as the probabilistic smears that the s...
