Scientists find a way to make quantum computing more reliable

Classical computer (the ones we use on a daily basis) encode all the information we need in bits, that is, in “zeroes” and “ones”. This type of computer performs calculations in a similar way to how it would be done by hand. It does have more patience than most of us to solve such problems,…

What is fingerprinting and how quantum mechanics can improve it

If you are a fan of police procedure series such as CSI, Law and Order, and others you are probably very aware of the importance of our fingerprints. They can lead the detectives straight to the culprit and, once he is caught, they can secure his (or her) arrest and conviction. The reason why fingerprints…
