Quantum physics has a strange but fundamental principle, namely that the atoms in the quantum state does not move as long as they observe or measure. It may seem counterintuitive, but researchers at Cornell University have shown that this principle is real.
The team observed that the atoms of rubidium gas cryogenically frozen cloud does not move as long as notice. Whenever scientists used a laser to measure the behavior of these atoms, they found that they become immobile. Atoms gradually resume their movement once the laser intensity was reduced gradually until it stops.
This discovery has important implications for quantum computers of the future, demonstrating that the idea of quantum cryptography information is valid. An intruder can not spy files on a computer without such access them, at which destroys all the data contained therein.
In addition, the ability to stop anytime atomic movement can lead to the development of quantum sensors and switches extraordinarily sensitive to react from the moment in which the atoms begin to slow down.
Operation of a quantum computer is based on the phenomena of superposition and entanglement and not based transistors, such as computers currently used. Instead of using bits, a quantum computer uses qubits so-called. While bits can be 1 and 0, a qubit can be simultaneously 1, 0, or any quantum superposition of them, which allows automatically perform a much larger number of calculations in a much shorter time.
It is possible to predict how the future will look and how technology will shape our everyday lives? What kind of scientific criteria should be used when we try to make predictions regarding future? Michiu famous Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at New York, speaks a few things you can expect in the future: computers controlled by mind, cibermedicină and others. In an article published in the “Herald Tribune” Kaku reveals some amazing technological breakthroughs that we can see in the near future.
