Links to current QC research
A few weeks ago Charlie Hamaker sent me an article on new research in quantum optics, in which a group at MIT and Harvard developed a mechanism for managing the flow, photon-by-photon, from a laser. It’s a big result. They’re the first to demonstrate strong interactions between individual photons, mediated by a gas of ultra-cold atoms. It gives you an idea of the state of research on one path to quantum logic gates. Along these lines, you may also enjoy some of the articles linked on the blog for my quantum mechanics course last semester, for instance, this one.
