Quantum Computation: Fragile yet Error-free

Physicists have experimentally encoded one quantum bit (qubit) in entangled states distributed over several particles and for the first time carried out simple computations on it. The 7-qubit quantum register could be used as the main building block for a quantum computer that corrects any type of error. The researchers’ results have now been published in Science. (more…)

*Q & A: Dr. Michael Freedman discusses his past accomplishments and current pursuits to build a quantum computer.*

Santa Barbara, Calif.Mountain climbing is all about testing and pushing limits. But it’s not enough to rely on physical strength and stamina alone. To conquer a mountain, one must also possess the mental toughness and problem-solving skills needed to navigate difficult, potentially dangerous, terrain.
