Science & Technology at Scientific American.com: Quantum Entanglement Demonstrated in Superconducting Wires: “A dark horse candidate for the super powerful quantum computer of the future has now passed an important milestone. Researchers have made the first direct measurement showing they can forge a crucial quantum link between currents flowing through ultracold, superconducting wires.

Quantum computers would take advantage of a particle or other quantum system’s ability to exist simultaneously in two states–namely, a superposition of 0 and 1. Combining many such quantum bits, or qubits, into a working quantum computer would allow its operators to perform feats impossible even on today’s supercomputers, such as breaking gold-standard encryption schemes or conducting complex searches quickly.”

Hoop, there it is!
