A different spin on quantum computing

A different spin on quantum computing
In what may provide a potential path to processing information in a quantum computer, researchers have switched an intrinsic property of electrons from an excited state to a relaxed state on demand using a device that served as a microwave 'tuning fork'. The team’s findings could also lead to enhancements in magnetic resonance techniques, which are widely used to explore the structure of materials and biomolecules and for medical imaging.

Why does the UHD standard matter for quantum dot suppliers?

Content is king. And when it comes to new display technologies this mantra certainly makes a lot of sense. After all, what would be the point of getting the latest TV on the market if you just had some old DVDs to watch? Good content is what justifies a hardware upgrade.

Will macroscopic quantum superposition get off the ground?

Will macroscopic quantum superposition get off the ground?
Researchers from Stanford University have extended the record for macroscopic quantum superposition (the idea of being in two places, or states, at once) from 1 to 54 centimeters (0.39 to 21 inches) by launching a supercooled cloud of rubidium atoms, all in the same state, 10 meters (33 feet) into the air using a laser. Their results were published in Nature.

Demand for quantum dots set to increase 20-fold

Ever since Sony launched the first television with quantum dots in 2013, these highly engineered materials have been back in the spotlight. In the new report Quantum Dots 2016-2026: Applications, Markets, Manufacturers. IDTechEx Research forecasts that shipments of quantum dots will increase significantly in the next ten years.

Quantum physics problem proved unsolvable

Quantum physics problem proved unsolvable
A mathematical problem underlying fundamental questions in particle and quantum physics is probably unsolvable, according to scientists at UCL, Universidad Complutense de Madrid – ICMAT and Technical University of Munich. It is the first major problem in physics for which such a fundamental limitation could be proven.

Quantum computer made of semiconductor materials

Quantum computer made of semiconductor materials
Physicists at the Technical University of Munich, the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Stanford University (USA) have tracked down semiconductor nanostructure mechanisms that can result in the loss of stored information – and halted the amnesia using an external magnetic field. The new nanostructures comprise common semiconductor materials compatible with standard manufacturing processes.

Silicon quantum computers could soon be a reality

Silicon quantum computers could soon be a reality
  Clearing the final hurdle to making silicon quantum computers a reality, a team of engineers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), has built a quantum logic gate in silicon for the first time, making calculations between two qubits of information possible.

Quantum dots help boost superior colour reproduction

QD Vision has announced that Tongfang Global will soon provide its customers with 'wide colour gamut' televisions based on QD Vision’s Color IQ quantum dot technology. Color IQ solutions enable television and monitor manufacturers to deliver products capable of showing millions more colours than today’s 4K displays. Tongfang, which markets many of its products under the popular Seiki brand, will demonstrate its 55” 4K Ultra HD Color IQ-based TVs at IFA, Hall 6.2, Booth 204.
