Scientists from the Yokohama National University, Japan achieved the conquest of teleporting quantum info within a diamond. In the field of quantum information technology, their research is a crucial step within
Hideo Kosaka – a professor of engineering at Yokohama National University, led the research. He defined that the aim was to get data where it doesn’t usually go.
Kosaka mentions that Quantum teleportation permits the transfer of quantum information into an in any other case inaccessible space. It additionally allows the transmission of information right into a quantum memory without revealing or destroying the stored quantum information.
The “inaccessible space” explored within the research was the lattice of carbon atoms in a diamond – The strength of the structure stems from the diamond’s organization that has six protons and six neutrons within the nucleus – with six spinning electrons around it. As they bond to the diamond, the atoms type a super-strong lattice.
For their experiments, Kosaka and his team targeted on defects that generally arise in diamonds, when a nitrogen atom seems in vacancies that might ordinarily house carbon atoms.
Kosaka’s team maneuvered an electron and a carbon isotope in such a vacancy by running a microwave and a radio wave into the diamond by way of a very thin wire one-fourth of the width of a human hair. The wire was then attached to the diamond, creating an oscillating magnetic field.
The scientists managed the microwaves sent to the diamond to transfer information inside it. Notably, they employed a nitrogen nanomagnet to transfer the polarization state of a photon to a carbon atom, successfully attaining teleportation.
The accomplishment might show vital within the quest for new ways to store and share delicate information, with previous studies exhibiting diamonds could house large amounts of encrypted data.
Kosaka’s team included – Kazuya Tsurumoto, Ryota Kuroiwa, Hiroki Kano, and Yuhei Sekiguchi.
