• Driven Quantum Dynamics: Will It Blend?

    By on October 23, 2017

    “Random number generation plays a pivotal role in quantum information applications (such as encryption), but generating random quantum operations requires exceptionally complex resources. A new theoretical analysis shows that an interacting many-body system can blend classical randomness through its dynamics to create quantum randomness.”     Random number generators play a prominent role in many technologies such as cryptography, computer

  • Coherent superpositions of three states for phosphorous donors in silicon prepared using THz radiation

    By on October 17, 2017

    Quantum computers could be a step closer to practical use thanks to the work of an international team led by University of Surrey scientists. The group, led by Dr Steve Chick and Professor of Physics Ben Murdin, has developed a way of making phosphorous atoms ‘dance’, which could be the next breakthrough in the quest to make quantum computers a

  • Fundamental limits of repeaterless quantum communications

    By on October 12, 2017

    Fundamental limits of repeaterless quantum communications   Quantum communications promise reliable transmission of quantum information, efficient distribution of entanglement and generation of completely secure cryptographic keys. However, for all these tasks, it was an open problem for about 20 years to determine the optimal point-to-point rates that are achievable by two remote parties at the ends of a quantum channel,

  • UCLQ scientists propose new imaging method for cardiac arrhythmias

    By Tabasum Farzaneh on April 13, 2016

    UCLQ scientists, Professor Ferruccio Renzoni and Dr Luca Marmugi have recently published a paper in Nature Scientific Reports proposing a novel diagnostic and guidance tool for atrial fibrillation. The device is based on quantum sensors (atomic magnetometers) operated in magnetic induction tomography (MIT) modality. The work was realised in the context of an UCLQ Fellowship Doctoral Award that Dr Marmugi

  • Analysis of loss and noise in superconducting devices sheds new light on problematic two level systems

    By Tabasum Farzaneh on March 21, 2016

    Superconducting quantum devices have emerged as a frontrunner in the pursuit of innovative new applications of quantum engineering, most notably quantum computing. This has been recognised within the UK with the recent EPSRC funding for founding quantum hubs; of which both the UCL led ‘Quantum Engineering with Solid-state Technologies’ (QUES²T) and Royal Holloway – NPL collaboration on ‘Superconducting Quantum Technology’

  • Quantum Magnets forced to ”chillax”

    By Tabasum Farzaneh on February 17, 2016

    Quantum Magnets forced to ”chillax”.  Coupling magnetic moments and microwave light provides route for networking quantum bits In what may provide a potential path to connecting data in a quantum computer, researchers have shown that excited atoms in silicon can be forced into a relaxed state on-demand using a device that serves as a microwave “tuning fork.” team’s findings could
