Quantum Computer Computes, While Not Operating

By combining quantum computation and quantum interrogation, scientists at the University of Illinois (UI) have demonstrated “counterfactual computation.” This intriguing application of quantum mechanics allows information about a problem’s answer to be inferred, although the quantum computer algorithm did not actually process the problem. The logic behind quantum coherence often deviates from intuitive reasoning, leading […]

Nanomaterial Error-Correction Process Mimics Nature

Although a great deal of progress has been made in the self-assembly of nanomaterials, defects that occur during the assembly process present major problems for critical applications such as molecular electronics and photonics. To date, efforts to overcome these assembly errors have focused on either minimizing errors or designing devices that can tolerate errors, but […]
