Tying quantum knots with an optical clock

Tying quantum knots with an optical clock

July 25, 2019

The optical atomic clock in Jun Ye's lab can create cluster states in milliseconds, which is necessary for quantum computing—considered a "holy grail" of quantum science. Quantum computers could solve complex problems that even today’s most sophisticated super computers cannot.
