Irish researchers make quantum computing breakthrough

A researcher and his team at Tyndall National Institute in Cork have made a breakthrough that could enable the use of quantum computers sooner than expected.

The result which could have a serious impact on the future of computing was achieved by a team led by Dr Emanuele Pelucchi, head of epitaxy and physics of nanostructures and a member of the Science Foundation Ireland-funded Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC). The team have succeeded in making quantum dot light-emitting diodes that can produce entangled photons (whose actions are linked), theoretically enabling their use to encode information in quantum computing.
