Interdisciplinary team awarded grants to pursue quantum computing and entanglement research

Two grants awarded to Boise State researchers to create, corral and control the elusive molecular exciton. The research team is pioneering the use of DNA as a programmable, self-assembling architecture to organize dye molecules for creating and controlling room temperature exciton quantum entanglement.

Symmetries in Physical Systems Help Optimize Quantum Computing

At the AVS 66th International Symposium and Exhibition, Oct. 20-25, Daniel Gunlycke will present a study on using symmetry to reduce the effects of random quantum entanglement in quantum computing applications. When deliberate, quantum entanglement can make algorithms more powerful and efficient, but uncontrolled entanglement adds unnecessary additional complexity to quantum computing, making algorithms suboptimal and more prone to error. Gunlycke says by reducing the frequency of accidental entanglements, quantum computing can be improved.
