The Qubit Lab - Boson Sampling

When you need to do a computation, you'd probably think that a computer or even an abacus would do the trick... but when the computations get more complex, it takes a heftier bean-counter to calculate the results. In the Qubit Lab, researchers are using quantum particles like photons to make difficult calculations.

The Qubit Lab - Photonics

Researchers are working on using the quantum properties of light to do computations. This technology is known as "integrated photonics."

Computers based on particles of light could be millions of times more powerful than today's best number crunchers, making the hardest computations easier: things like predicting the weather, the structure of drugs used in medicine, and even cracking encryption codes!
