Quantum Institutes News

Eind januari lieten onderzoekers van het Delftse QuTech en Microsoft weten dat ze toch niet zeker waren dat ze majoranadeeltjes hadden waargenomen. Ze trokken hun Nature-publicatie hierover terug, een tegenslag voor de Delftse onderzoekers en Microsoft. Dat de toekomst van de quantumcomputer nu onzeker is, zoals Bert Wagendorp schreef in zijn column in de Volkskrant,... Read more

Normally the word “chaos” evokes a lack of order: a hectic day, a teenager’s bedroom, tax season. And the physical understanding of chaos is not far off. It’s something that is extremely difficult to predict, like the weather. Chaos allows a small blip (the flutter of a butterfly wing) to... Read more
