• Quantum Leap: from research to large-scale market

    By Padraic Calpin on June 8, 2018

    Quantum technology has the potential to make transformative impacts in computing, security, sensing and navigation, and future UK investments should prioritise technology platforms with the best fit to industrial priorities, say two UCL professors giving evidence at to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee inquiry on quantum technologies. Professor John Morton and Professor Sir Michael Pepper, both UCL

  • 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,
