#### The First Ever Photograph Of Light As A Particle And A Wave

**Quantum mechanics tells us that light can behave simultaneously as a particle or a wave. However, there has never been an experiment able to capture both natures of light at the same time; the closest we have come is seeing either wave or particle, but always at different times.** 592 more words

#### What is Quantum Computing?

A week ago one of my blogs mentioned a new way to transmit the results of quantum computing. I’ve been following quantum computing for a few years and that announcement led me to take a fresh look at the latest in the quantum computing field. 747 more words

#### How NASA uses quantum computing for space travel and robotics

Quantum computing is still in its infancy, even though the idea of a quantum computer was developed some thirty years ago. But there are a whole load of pioneering organizations ( 651 more words

#### Nanomedicines of the future will build on Quantum Chemistry - Quantum Computing

**Q**uantum chemical calculations have been used to solve big mysteries in space. Soon the same calculations may be used to produce tomorrow’s cancer drugs. 1,576 more words

#### Quantum Computing: Looking Out Over the Horizon

One of the first articles that for me sparked serious interest in quantum mechanics is still one of the best. It was about the emerging and mysterious field of quantum mechanics and many worlds theory, with a quite concrete and useful existing application – quantum computing. 126 more words
