Quantum memory device can store information at room temperature – a step towards building a quantum internet that could transmit secure data over fiber optic cables
September 20, 2022
A compact device that manipulates atoms to store quantum information, known as quantum memory, is stable at room temperature and could be a step towards building a quantum internet capable of transmitting exceptionally secure information via cables to optical fiber.
Previous quantum memory devices often consisted of a maze of small components scattered across large tables, and typically required deep vacuum or extreme cooling technology that can be sensitive to the tiniest of disturbances.
