Computers designing quantum optics experiments

Quantum states can exhibit bizarre but powerful properties, such as being in a superposition or containing correlations not possible in classical physics. If these properties can be controlled, then they can be exploited in quantum technologies to dramatically transform computing, enable … Continue reading
