Physicists take atoms for a quantum walk

Wednesday, March 10, 2010 - 09:14 in Physics & Chemistry

A team of physicists has achieved a quantum walk in a quantum system with up to 23 steps. It is the first time that this quantum process using trapped ions has been demonstrated in detail. This latest advance promises to be important for the development of quantum computers in finding search quantum algorithms that outperform their classical counterparts as different directions could be chosen simultaneously.
