A quantum memory device can store information at room temperature – a step towards building a quantum internet that could transmit secure data across fibre-optic cables
20 September 2022
A compact device that manipulates atoms to store quantum information could be a step towards building a quantum internet that could transmit exceptionally secure information across fibre-optic cables.
Devices that store quantum information, known as quantum memory, often consist of a maze of small components strewn across large tables, and typically require high vacuum or extreme cooling technology that can be sensitive to the tiniest of disturbances.
Now, Mehdi Namazi and his colleagues at the …
