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.

In first head-to-head speed test with conventional computing, quantum computer wins

In first head-to-head speed test with conventional computing, quantum computer wins | Biosciencia News | Scoop.it
(Phys.org) —A computer science professor at Amherst College who recently devised and conducted experiments to test the speed of a quantum computing system against conventional computing methods will soon be presenting a paper with her verdict: quantum...
