As today's computers show fundamental limitations in calculation capacity for future use, a scalable, electrically driven photon source could make quantum computing a reality sooner than expected. Researcher Emanuele Pelucchi. Courtesy of Tyndall National Institute. Quantum computing — a technology for designing computers based on quantum mechanics, the science of atomic structure and function — uses the qubit, or quantum bit, which can hold an infinite number of values. With this capability, quantum computers would harness the capacity to superimpose information in the...Read full article
