Quantum Randomness Now Boosts Everyday Security
Randomness is a crucial ingredient in encryption, and with tech giants now utilizing quantum random number generator (QRNG) platforms and chips to secure their services, could the use of quantum randomness soon be standard practice?
For the First Time, Scientists Detect a Moving Photon Multiple Times Without Destroying It
Detecting photons typically requires absorbing them, however, researchers in Germany have detected a single photon twice without destroying it. Such findings could one day help scientists keep track of photons in quantum technology, leading to faster quantum computers and networks.
IBM's Quantum Computing Compromise—a Road to Scale?
By using hexagonal quantum processors with fewer connections between qubits, IBM reports an exponential reduction in errors that will help them scale faster to much larger processors required to solve real-world problems.
