Feature: A Quantum of Silence
Single photons have weird yet useful behaviours, with applications ranging from secure communications to quantum computing. While current silicon photon sources often produce additional “noise photons” that interfere with these emerging technologies, new research has discovered a method to quieten this quantum chaos.

A team of Australian engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has demonstrated a quantum bit based on the nucleus of a single atom in silicon, promising dramatic improvements for data processing in ultra-powerful quantum computers of the future.
Online Feature: Quantum computing becomes more than just spin
The building blocks of a quantum computer have been created and tested in a high tech basement at the University of NSW, and within a few years Andrea Morello and his colleagues expect to have a small working prototype.
