• The Qubit Lab - Boson Sampling - Duration: 4 minutes, 7 seconds.

    • 6 years ago
    When you need to do a computation, you'd probably think that a computer or even an abacus would do the trick... but when the computations get more complex, it takes a heftier bean-counter to calcul...
  • The Qubit Lab - Quantum Correlations - Duration: 5 minutes, 20 seconds.

    • 6 years ago
    Correlations are when things happen together: can you imagine flipping a coin and getting the same result as someone else... every time? It doesn't happen in classical physics, but researchers are ...
  • The Qubit Lab - Quantum Repeaters - Duration: 5 minutes, 38 seconds.

    • 6 years ago
    Photons can already be used to communicate from Point A to Point B... but what if we want to communicate with Point X, Y, or Z? European researchers in the QuReP project are using solid state quant...
  • The Qubit Lab - Photonics - Duration: 3 minutes, 41 seconds.

    • 6 years ago
    Researchers are working on using the quantum properties of light to do computations. This technology is known as "integrated photonics."

    Computers based on particles of light could be millions of ...

  • The Qubit Lab - Quantum Random Number Generation - Duration: 4 minutes, 51 seconds.

    • 6 years ago
    We all would love to win the lottery, but did you know that every time you buy a ticket, you may be putting your faith in the very random nature of photons?

    Thanks to quantum physics, we can now u...

  • The Qubit Lab - Nanomechanics & the Squid - Duration: 5 minutes, 24 seconds.

    • 8 years ago
    A popular quantum paradox, "the Observer Effect," notes that by the mere act of observing an experiment, we affect the outcome. A similar conundrum exists in the field of nanomechanics.

    One can...
  • The Qubit Lab - PhoXonic Crystals - Duration: 5 minutes, 8 seconds.

    • 8 years ago
    Until now, the interactions of electrons, photons, and phonons with periodic structures have been considered independently. What would happen if a crystal were periodically structured to interact w...
  • The Qubit Lab - Optomechanics - Duration: 6 minutes, 15 seconds.

    • 8 years ago
    Usually when we think of mechanics, we think of big, heavy machines, like motors, with all kinds of levers and gearwheels. They seem to have little in common with the strange world of quantum physi...
  • The Qubit Lab - Photon Codes - Duration: 3 minutes, 28 seconds.

    • 8 years ago
    When you think of secret codes, you probably think of James Bond or the Cold War... but soon you might also think of quantum physics. That's because scientists have developed a system of coding cal...
  • The Qubit Lab - Photosynthesis - Duration: 3 minutes, 1 second.

    • 8 years ago
    Photosynthesis is one of the most important chemical reactions in the world. It is an extremely complex series of chemical reactions that takes place in a very messy environment. So why does it wor...
  • The Qubit Lab - Ion Traps - Duration: 3 minutes, 15 seconds.

    • 8 years ago
    When an atom loses an electron, it becomes an ion. But ions attract electrons so they normally do not remain ions for long before they become atoms again. But scientists have figured out how to tra...
  • The Qubit Lab - Diamond Computing - Duration: 3 minutes, 23 seconds.

    • 8 years ago
    Diamond is an impressive material with plenty of valuable uses... but did you know it may soon be possible to run a computer with one? Scientists are working on turning a diamond into a quantum pro...
  • The Qubit Lab - Quantum Metrology - Duration: 3 minutes, 47 seconds.

    • 8 years ago
    We normally think of light as waves... but light is also made up of particles, called photons. With quantum physics, scientists are beginning to harness the power of photons to make more precise me...
