QM Talks@CBPF: Nadja K. Bernardes – 16.09, 16h00

The Paraty Quantum Information School and Workshop is over… or is it?
The actual conference it is over, but its effects are still strongly felt. Our next seminar of the series QM Talks@CBPF will be delivered by Nadja K. 225 more words


Image of the week: entanglement structures in qubit systems

Entanglement is a natural consequence of the superposition principle and a distinguishing feature in quantum mechanics. It is desirable to better understand and quantify the nature of entanglement within a quantum system and qubit systems appear to offer an ‘ 188 more words

Research for Science Fiction Writing: How Our Minds Create Reality

Just wanted to share a short essay I wrote about information and thinking. I do a lot of research for my writing in science fiction and sometimes get lost in thought about these topics thinking about how I could incorporate them into a new story. 1,354 more words


One Step Closer to Quantum Computing—Logic Gates Made from Light

Microprocessors consist of billions of logic gates etched in silicon. These gates carry out simple logical functions that combine to perform powerful calculations. In order for quantum computers to exist logic gates could be made from pure light. 140 more words
