Cluster State Quantum Computers

There has been a proof of concept using lasers to enable the first use of Deutsch’s Algorithm in a cluster state quantum computer. Cluster state quantum computers or one-way quantum computer are a scheme of quantum computation that consists entirely of one-qubit measurements on a particular class of entangled states, the cluster states. (“A One-Way …

Scanning tunneling microscopes could get 500 times faster

A new nanoscale apparatus developed at JILA—a tiny gold beam whose 40 million vibrations per second are measured by hopping electrons—offers the potential for a 500-fold increase in the speed of scanning tunneling microscopes (STM), perhaps paving the way for scientists to watch atoms vibrate in high definition in real time. The new device measures …
