Quantum Time Crystals Could Be Useful for Quantum Computing

Quantum time crystals are systems characterized by spontaneously emerging periodic order in the time domain. Lancaster University researchers experimentally studied two adjacent quantum time crystals realized by two magnon (magnetic particles) condensates in superfluid 3He-B. They saw an exchange of magnons between the time crystals leading to opposite-phase oscillations in their populations—a signature of the …

Entangle Quantum Entangled Machines Can Verify Solutions Up to Halting Problem Hardness Level

A major new proof has combined Albert Einsteins Quantum Physics with Alan Turing’s Computing Theories. The new proof shows that quantum entangled machines can be used to verify solutions to problems that are as complicated and hard as the halting problem. Turing showed that Halting problem cannot be solved but we can use entangled systems …
