Teams at startups, universities,  government labs, and companies like IBM are racing to build computers that could potentially solve some problems that are now intractable.

Applied Physics Letters - September 12, 2016

An article from the RSL group is selected as the front cover of the latest Applied Physics Letters (12 September 2016 issue). The paper titled, “Suspending superconducting qubits by silicon micromachining”, by Yiwen Chu, Christoper Axline, Chen Wang, Teresa Brecht, Yvonne Gao, LuigiFrunzio and...

Physics APS - September 16, 2016

A new device that can potentially be scaled up for quantum computing converts visible light to infrared light suitable for fiber-optic transmission without destroying the light’s quantum state.    

Yale SEAS News - September 21, 2016

Go to a particular spot outside the Oyster Bar in New York’s Grand Central Terminal, and murmur very softly into the corner. Dozens of feet away, you can still be heard clearly.It’s known as a whispering gallery, a phenomenon in which sound waves of certain frequencies travel along curved surfaces...

Nature 541 - January 3, 2017

Google, Microsoft and a host of labs and start-ups are racing to turn scientific curiosities into working machines. Quantum computing has long seemed like one of those technologies that are 20 years away, and always will be. But 2017 could be the year that the field sheds its research-only image.

Yale News - July 25, 2016

Yale physicists have created something similar to a Moebius strip of moving energy between two vibrating objects, opening the door to novel forms of control over waves in acoustics, laser optics, and quantum mechanics. The discovery also demonstrates that a century-old physics theorem offers much...

EE Times - Januray 7, 2017

LAKE WALES, Fla. — Today only a single company — D-Wave Systems — produces a commercial quantum computer, and even D-Wave admits its latest “2X” is no substitute for a supercomputer (except for a small set of optimization tasks). Within five years, however, all that may be changed.

The Economist - March 9, 2017

After decades as laboratory curiosities, some of quantum physics’ oddest effects are beginning to be put to use, says Jason Palmer

Yale News - April 3, 2017

You don’t have to be a scientist to find beauty in black holes, gravitational waves, and quantum physics. Many artists see it too, says Martha Lewis ’93 M.F.A. It’s a topic that Lewis will explore in a presentation at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4 at the Yale Quantum Institute (YQI), 17 Hillhouse Ave...

Yale News - April 19, 2017

  Yale’s Robert Schoelkopf, Sterling Professor of Applied Physics and Physics and director of the Yale Quantum Institute, was awarded the 2017 Connecticut Medal of Science for his seminal contributions to the field of quantum science and to the new field of circuit quantum electrodynamics. The...
