Researchers build an all-optical transistor

Researchers build an all-optical transistor | Biosciencia News | Scoop.it
Optical computing — using light rather than electricity to perform calculations — could pay dividends for both conventional computers and quantum computers, largely hypothetical devices that could perform some types of computations exponentially...
Biosciencia's insight:

An optical switch that can be turned on by a single photon could point toward new designs for both classical and quantum computers.

Researchers capture image of hydrogen atom's electron orbital for first time
Geek (blog)
An international team of researchers has managed for the first time to visualize the electron orbital of a hydrogen atom.
Biosciencia's insight:

An international team of researchers has managed for the first time to visualize the electron orbital of a hydrogen atom. The image was acquired with a revolutionary new instrument called a quantum microscope, which allows scientists to push the limits of quantum states and observe what was once only theory. It almost goes without saying this is a huge deal.

Consciousness Could Be the Effect of Quantum Mechanical Phenomena

Consciousness Could Be the Effect of Quantum Mechanical Phenomena | Biosciencia News | Scoop.it
While hard evidence is still lacking, scientists have proposed that consciousness arises from quantum mechanical brain activity.
Biosciencia's insight:

Hameroff read Penrose’s work and suggested that microtubules -- small fibrous structures that underpin cells – may be capable of carrying out such computations. Together, Penrose and Hameroff began working on what they called the Orchestrated Objective Reduction (Orch OR) model, which examines how quantum mechanical phenomena could be applied to activity within these structures.
