DOE Funds $17.5M for 3 ORNL-led Quantum Research Projects

September 22, 2021 — Of the $61 million recently announced by the U.S. Department of Energy for quantum information science studies, $17.5 million will fund research at DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. These projects will help build the foundation for the quantum internet, advance quantum entanglement capabilities — which involve sharing information through paired particles of light […]

Riken Claims Quantum Breakthrough: Entanglement of Three Spin Qubits

Researchers at Japan’s RIKEN scientific research institute have claimed a breakthrough in quantum computing, increasing the number of silicon-based qubits that can be entangled to three from two, which they say improves the potential of spin qubits for realizing multi-qubit quantum algorithms and effectively addressing quantum error correction. Reporting recently in SciTechDaily, the five researchers […]

Indian Institute of Tech, Max-Born Institut Team Say Graphene Valleytrionics Could Enable Room Temperature Quantum

A research team from the Indian Institute of Technology and Max-Born Institute of Germany have published a study on a novel approach for encoding quantum information: valleytronics. Aside from their charge, electrons have another parameter that can be manipulated: their “valley pseudospin,” which are the local minima in the energy bands of solids that can […]
