Physicist brings entanglement framework to realm of superconductors

Quantum computers have the potential to be significantly more powerful than today’s fastest silicon-based processors, and a central ingredient behind their power is a fundamental property of quantum mechanics known as “entanglement”.

Now a UWindsor physics professor has developed a mathematical formalism for characterizing entanglement in an important class of materials, marking an important step in understanding these systems and a potential contribution toward quantum computing.

Quantum corrals and the future of computers subject of public presentation

Over the past half-century, computers have been steadily growing in power as they shrink in size. This great progress in information technology has been due primarily to the downsizing of electronics components, but is now reaching a limit where new technology based on quantum physics will be needed if the progress is to continue.

Physics professor Eugene Kim will discuss his ground-breaking research and its relation to the future of computing in a free public lecture Wednesday entitled “Law and Order at the Quantum Corral.”
