IBM bets big on spintronics, new type of memory which it says will deliver terabyte MP3 players.

Focus on Custom Products and Contract Research and Development Services

SOMERVILLE, MA–April 7th, 2008 – MagiQ Technologies, Inc., the quantum

Researchers in the UK have taken a small but important step towards the creation of practical quantum computers by creating the first logic gates on a silicon chip that can process individual photons. The chip, which measures several millimetres across, reproduces an earlier version of the gate that occupied several square metres of space on an optical bench.

A new study hints that black holes might not be as good at keeping secrets as researchers have long thought. Recently [http://www.cs.mcgill.ca/~patrick/ Patrick Hayden] and [http://www.theory.caltech.edu/~preskill/ John Preskill] have reexamined the time it would take for information to potentially escape from inside a black hole.
