Yale’s latest work expanding the reach of quantum information science is actually a game of quantum pitch and catch.
Yale scientists used laser light to gain access to long-lived sound waves in crystalline solids as the basis for information storage. The result was published online April 2 in the journal Nature Physics.
Astronomer and board game designer Dante Lauretta will investigate space exploration and board games in the Yale Quantum Institute’s fifth event in its series of nontechnical talks about science and the humanities.
