iflscience.com — Among the strange features of quantum mechanics is the phenomenon known as quantum tunneling, where a subatomic particle overcomes a barrier that would be impassable in other sorts of physics. Generations of physics students have been taught this phenomenon with analogies like objects passing throug…

iflscience.com — Researchers have crafted a time-reversal algorithm for quantum computers and showed that it is near impossible for time reversal to happen in nature. Time: it's constantly running out and we never have enough of it. Some say it’s an illusion, some say it flies like an arrow. Well, this arrow of tim…

techcrunch.com — At CES, IBM today announced its first commercial quantum computer for use outside of the lab. The 20-qubit system combines into a single package the quantum and classical computing parts it takes to use a machine like this for research and business applications. That package, the IBM Q system, is s…
