Intel's New Path to Quantum Computing
14 Jun, 2018 | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"Intel's director of quantum hardware, Jim Clarke, explains the company's two quantum computing technologies" By Samuel K. Moore and Amy Nordrum
Fujitsu’s CMOS Digital Annealer Produces Quantum Computer Speed
07 Jun, 2018 | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"Fujitsu has designed a new computer architecture running on silicon that the company claims rivals that of quantum computers in utility. Dubbed the Digital Annealer, Fujitsu has begun offering cloud services this month employing the technology to resolve combinatorial optimization problems such as finding similarities between patterns of molecules to speed up drug discovery, choosing investments for financial portfolios, and rearranging the layout of components in warehouses and factories to increase productivity." by John Boyd

"A global network of spacecraft and ground stations, distributing secret encryption keys by means of quantum technology, could meet emerging and long-term threats to data security." by Imran Khan, Bettina Heim, Andreas Neuzner and Christoph Marquardt
Flip-Flop Qubit Could Make Silicon the King of Quantum Computing
23 Nov, 2017 | IEEE SpectrumFull Text External Link Indicator
"Headline-grabbing quantum computing efforts by Google and IBM have mostly focused on building quantum bits, called qubits, out of loops of superconducting materials. But a recent breakthrough could enable a different technology based on spin-based silicon qubits to eventually dominate the rise of quantum computers." by Jeremy Hsu
Comtest Announces Next Step in Polystyrene Absorber Technology
16 Nov, 2017 | Microwave JournalFull Text External Link Indicator
"After nearly two years of development, Comtest has finished work on its new MT45-JT absorber and is ready to present the technology at the 39th annual meeting and symposium of the Antenna Measurements Techniques Association (AMTA) in Atlanta, Ga. The MT45-JT owes its name to the recognizable Javelin tip it is equipped with. This specially designed tip allows the absorber to operate in frequencies from 500 MHz all the way up to 40 Ghz, meaning Comtest’s polystyrene absorber is now able to match the performance of traditional polyurethane foam absorbers."
