Ultrafast gates for single atomic qubits

A team of physicists has achieved ultrafast 'switching' time in an operation central to quantum information processing, changing the state of a single trapped ion in less than 50 picoseconds with more than 99 percent reliability.

Physicists use offshoot of string theory to describe puzzling behavior of superconductors

Physicists are divided on whether string theory is a viable theory of everything, but many agree that it offers a new way to look at physical phenomena that have otherwise proven difficult to describe. In the past decade, physicists have used string theory to build a connection between quantum and gravitational mechanics, known as gauge/gravity duality. MIT physicists have now used that connection to describe a specific physical phenomenon - the behavior of a type of high-temperature superconductor.
