Quantum tech prepares for its big leap
It is touted as the next big thing. So where is Ireland at in terms of quantum computing? Jonathan Keane finds out
When the Nobel Prize for physics in 2022 was announced, UCD professor Steve Campbell was quick to find an Irish link.
The three prize winners were recognised for their work on quantum entanglement, which examined the way particles are entangled regardless of how far apart they are.
According to the Nobel Prize organisation, the research challenges a theory called Bell’s inequalities and is “pioneering quantum information science”.
Bell’s inequalities refer to a theorem on quantum ...
