Researchers realize quantum communications milestone using light

Researchers realize quantum communications milestone using light

Such operations, however, are required for basic networking functions in quantum communications and, by extension, the realization of a vast range of quantum technologies. While frequency-bin quantum networking has been historically difficult to control, the team’s toolbox, Lukens said, makes it much more controllable….

On Gravity—and the Truth of Science

On Gravity—and the Truth of Science

Expository writers—at any rate, the good ones—are also searching for truth, but in the human sphere of culture, politics, society and history. There are strongly held personal convictions and considerable bickering in science, too, but eventually incontestable fact, if not absolutely unsettled truth, will emerge….

Roche and Cambridge Quantum Computing Use Algorithms for Early Alzheimer’s Drug Research

Roche and Cambridge Quantum Computing Use Algorithms for Early Alzheimer’s Drug Research

In a recently formed collaboration with Roche, Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) will design and implement noisy-intermediate-scale-quantum (NISQ) algorithms for early stage drug discovery and development. The collaboration, formed in late January 2021, will employ CQC’s quantum chemistry platform EUMEN,…
