When it comes to studying transportation systems, stock markets and the weather, quantum mechanics is probably the last thing to come to mind. However, scientists at Australia’s Griffith University and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University have just performed a ‘proof of principle’ experiment showing that when it comes to simulating such complex processes in the macroscopic […]
Griffith University is part of a worldwide scientific experiment that will test the laws of quantum physics – and you’re invited! Tomorrow (November 30) the ‘BIG Bell Test: worldwide quantum experiments powered by human randomness’ aims to conduct a series of quantum experiments in labs around the world that, for the first time, will be […]

Researchers have overcome one of the key challenges to quantum computing by simplifying a complex quantum logic operation. They demonstrated this by experimentally realising a challenging circuit, the quantum Fredkin gate, for the first time. “The allure of quantum computers is the unparalleled processing power that they provide compared to current technology,” said Dr Raj Patel from […]
Griffith University is an academic partner of one of the world’s most prestigious scientific and cultural festivals.
by Geoff Pryde, Griffith University As hackers get more sophisticated in their cyber crime efforts, we need to look to new technology to make our systems more secure, and potentially unhackable. For some types of hacking, we already know the ultimate answer: quantum physics provides a way to share information with absolute security, guaranteed by the […]
Scientists from Griffith's Centre for Quantum Dynamics say a process known as quantum steering could be the key to absolutely secure information transfer over the internet
