Nanofiber Fabrication Boosts Quantum Computing

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A new approach to fabricating optical nanofibers could enable the next generation of quantum computing. These ultra-high-transmission fibers, developed by researchers at the University of Maryland’s Joint Quantum Institute, could act as low-power traps for long-lived qubits. Creating the new nanofibers has proven relatively straightforward, according to the researchers: A fine strand of silica fiber is heated by flame to a near-melting point, then pulled apart, prompting the middle to thin out until it is about 530 nm in diameter. Light propagates through an optical...Read full article
