CQP in The Quantum Pontiff blog29 October 2012CQP's recently published paper, 'Experimental realisation of Shor's quantum factoring algorithm using qubit recycling', receives attention from the quantum blog, The Quantum Pontiff.
Astronomers discover look-alike galaxies26 October 2012An international team of astronomers, including Professor Steve Phillipps from Bristol, has reported the discovery of two groups of galaxies with very similar properties to the local group containing our own Milky Way Galaxy.
Bristol hosts the 16th triennial International Conference on Positron Annihilation (ICPA-16)26 October 2012This summer saw the University of Bristol hold the 16th triennial International Conference on Positron Annihilation (ICPA-16) with attendance from over 200 people from 28 different countries. Bristol has a rich history in positron physics; Paul Dirac, who predicted the existence of the positron in 1928, lived here in his childhood and studied in Bristol as an undergraduate.
High temperature superconductors show new type of electronic order26 October 2012The results of a collaboration between Bristol's Stephen Hayden and colleagues based in Birmingham, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Vancouver, and Villigen were published in October by Nature Physics. The results show that high temperature superconductivity in layered cuprates can develop from an electronically ordered state called a charge density wave.
Quantum calculation sets new record.23 October 2012An article 'Recycled photons set fresh quantum computing record' has been published in the New Scientist following research published in Nature Photonics.
Quantum computing with recycled particles23 October 2012A research team from the University of Bristol’s Centre for Quantum Photonics (CQP) have brought the reality of a quantum computer one step closer by experimentally demonstrating a technique for significantly reducing the physical resources required for quantum factoring.
