NASA will create coldest place in the universe to study quantum physics

It's hard to study quantum behavior on Earth. You can amplify the effects of quantum mechanics by zapping groups of specific atoms (Bose-Einstein condensates) with lasers that drop their temperature to near absolute zero, but that only works for frac… Source: Engadget

'Flip-flop' design makes quantum computers more affordable

One of the greatest challenges in quantum computing is… well, making the computers. You may need exotic manufacturing techniques just to handle the very exacting requirements, such as positioning the atoms in quantum bits in exact positions at clos… Source: Engadget
