• Rough and ready quantum memory may link disparate quantum systems

    Enlarge / Whatever format quantum memory takes, it's not going to look like this.
    I'm a simple person. To me, a computer consists of three parts: data that goes in and out, operations that modify the data, and storage that holds the data. It is no different for quantum computing, though all three parts of the solution are still undefined: no one is exactly sure of what medium is best to represent and transport data. Different ways to encode operations are being fought over.
    We're probably the furthest from having a solution when it comes to memory. But a new laser-hammer approach to...
