NIST report says we urgently need more work in post-quantum cryptography

NIST report says we urgently need more work in post-quantum cryptography The study of how to keep encrypting messages even in the face of exponentially increased computing power is called “post-quantum cryptography,” or “quantum-resistant cryptography,” and the reality is that nobody knows quite how urgent it really is.Perhaps real, programmable quantum computers will never be a reality — but perhaps they will, and if they will, we’d better be ready.

This quantum ruler is the latest win against the many ‘nevers’ of quantum science

Its wavelengths, as we were able to create and use them, were in many cases too large for our purposes — even in the smallest range.Yet today, high-level quantum experiments regularly use entanglement as a tool to make even larger discoveries.

Electroluminescent diamonds could serve as the heart of quantum networks

Electroluminescent diamonds could serve as the heart of quantum networks But researchers might have solved one of the most challenging problems of quantum communications, by showing that diamonds can be used as ultra-bright single photon emitters.Until now, quantum dots have been the closest we’ve come to real-world quantum cryptographic systems, and bit leakage isn’t the only vulnerability in quantum cryptography.

Astronomers discover true nature of ‘giant space blob’

Astronomers discover true nature of ‘giant space blob’ We’ve been staring at the first such blob, called Lyman-Alpha blob 1 or LAB-1 for short, since we found it in 2000.The birth of galaxies is not a peaceful process, and these young galaxies could be bombarding the star nurseries with high-energy matter, driving star formation.

China claims to have invented quantum radar that could render entire US stealth fleet obsolete

China claims to have invented quantum radar that could render entire US stealth fleet obsolete The Chinese military says it has invented quantum radar, a breakthrough which, if true, would render the hundreds of billions of dollars the United States has invested into stealth technology obsolete.Like the original invention of radar, the advent of modern artillery, or radio communications, quantum radar could fundamentally transform the scope and nature of war.

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to mathematicians working in Flatland

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to mathematicians working in Flatland Michael Kosterlitz for “theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter.When cooled to just a few degrees above absolute zero, and subjected to a perpendicular magnetic field of 15 Tesla (just barely weaker than the magnetic field required to levitate a frog), that conductive 2D layer started acting very differently.

In bid to achieve quantum encryption, China set to finish 2,000-kilometer 'quantum link'

In bid to achieve quantum encryption, China set to finish 2,000-kilometer 'quantum link' Now, China is nearing completion of another major facet in its push for a quantum phone at the capital building: a 2,000-kilometer fiber-optic line for ferrying quantum encryption keys.It’s the beginning of China’s roll-out of true quantum encryption technology.

Can the conflict between dark matter and gravity be resolved?

Can the conflict between dark matter and gravity be resolved? To date, we’ve accounted for this by invoking dark matter and dark energy, which together apparently make up much of the universe.Epicycles accounted for everything we could see — until suddenly we could see more, and that explanation was no longer sufficient.

Extreme science: the biggest, fastest and hottest breakthroughs of 2016

Extreme science: the biggest, fastest and hottest breakthroughs of 2016 Where LCLS-II is like a microscope, used to image specific tiny things, proton colliders like the LHC are closer to sledgehammers.Remember that photons and electrons have both wavelike and particle-like properties, and they both have the mass-related property of momentum.

Touch-enabled smart cases could come to iPhone, if Apple patent bears out

Touch-enabled smart cases could come to iPhone, if Apple patent bears out That’s the thinking behind an Apple patent for a smart case made of a “quantum tunneling material” that could actually extend touch-sensitivity to the back of a phone.The phrase “quantum tunneling material” sounds complicated, but is in fact relatively simple to understand.

The University of Maryland pits its quantum computer against IBM’s hardware

The University of Maryland pits its quantum computer against IBM’s hardware The two quantum computers were fielded by the University of Maryland and IBM.Since May, IBM has allowed students and enthusiasts to experiment with its quantum computer via the IBM Quantum Experience, which was used in this experiment.

IBM plans to build the first commercially available universal quantum computer

IBM plans to build the first commercially available universal quantum computer A universal quantum computer is capable of tackling problems that are too large for a conventional system, so IBM Q would have many applications beyond what’s possible with current technology.To create knowledge from much greater depths of complexity, we need a quantum computer.

It’s the 1940s again: IBM’s Scott Crowder on the infancy of quantum computers

It’s the 1940s again: IBM’s Scott Crowder on the infancy of quantum computers When news arrived of IBM’s move to offer the first commercially available universal quantum computer last week, it was characterized as a “handoff” from IBM Research to IBM Systems.By offering the first commercially available universal quantum computer, IBM hopes to find out.

Google, NASA will install D-Wave’s latest 2,000-qubit quantum computer at Ames

Google, NASA will install D-Wave’s latest 2,000-qubit quantum computer at Ames More: D-Wave sold its first 2,000-qubit quantum annealer to a cybersecurity firm The point is, quantum computing is the next step in the evolution of computing on a whole.“The new system will be the third generation of D-Wave technology installed at Ames,” D-Wave CEO Vern Brownell said.

Close to the Metal Ep. 34: Quantum Computers are finally landing, but it’s still early

Close to the Metal Ep. 34: Quantum Computers are finally landing, but it’s still early While chip manufacturers struggle to push their architecture into small silicon wafers, and see only 10 percent performance improvements as result, IBM has its sights set on the next big thing — quantum computing.In fact, quantum systems are so different from the desktop sitting next to your monitor that IBM still don’t have a clear way of benchmarking or comparing the capabilities of different quantum systems.

Superfluid accelerates in the wrong direction when you push it

Superfluid accelerates in the wrong direction when you push it That means that when you push it, it doesn’t accelerate in that direction, but rather accelerates backward instead.You’re unlikely, for instance, to immediately get a superfluid desk toy that resists efforts to move in the direction you push it.
