That is the future of computers
Scientists at the University of Cambridge and Toshiba Research Europe have made a monumental breakthrough in quantum computing with new LEDs. The duo announced the invention of the Entangled Light Emitting Diode and plan to release a paper on it in the science journal Nature later today.
The head of the project at Toshiba Research Europe, Dr. Andrew Shields, said: “Although entangled light has been produced previously by shining an intense laser beam on crystals, the new simple device is the first voltage-powered source. The discovery is significant because it will allow electrical addressing of many entangled light emitters on a single chip, opening the path to ultra-powerful semiconductor processors based on quantum computation.”
