Bright sparks: How Griffith researchers are using light to build a better supercomputer

Griffith University researchers are building the next wave of supercomputers. Work published in Light: Science and Applications shows a new technique for a quick and reliable characterisation of integrated quantum chips that encode information using light instead of electrical current. In collaboration with ANU, RMIT and UTS in Australia and ITMO University in Russia, the researchers […]

Electron caught in the act

Australia’s fastest camera has revealed the time it takes for molecules to break apart. The experimental research, conducted by Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, aims to help in the design of new molecules for materials science or drug discovery. The Centre is the only place in the country to have the machine in its […]

Quantum RAM: modelling the big questions with the very small

When it comes to studying transportation systems, stock markets and the weather, quantum mechanics is probably the last thing to come to mind. However, scientists at Australia’s Griffith University and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University have just performed a ‘proof of principle’ experiment showing that when it comes to simulating such complex processes in the macroscopic […]

How we escaped from the Big Bang

A Griffith University physicist is challenging the conventional view of space and time to show how the world advances through time. Associate Professor Dr Joan Vaccaro, of Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, has solved an anomaly of conventional physics and shown that a mysterious effect called ‘T violation’ could be the origin of time evolution and conservation […]

Unlocking the gates to quantum computing

Researchers have overcome one of the key challenges to quantum computing by simplifying a complex quantum logic operation. They demonstrated this by experimentally realising a challenging circuit, the quantum Fredkin gate, for the first time. “The allure of quantum computers is the unparalleled processing power that they provide compared to current technology,” said Dr Raj Patel from […]
