Quantum Entanglement Now On-a-Chip: 20 micron enables uncrackable encryption

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Quantum computing promises to revolutionize future computers, enabling pint-sized hardware to outperform room-filing supercomputers, plus offers uncrackable encryption that foils all hackers no matter how skillful they are. The missing piece of the quantum puzzle was called "spooky action at a distance" by Einstein, namely a reliable source of entangled photons who mirror each others' state no matter how far apart on standard CMOS silicon chips. Now Italian scientists at the Università degli Studi di Pavia, in cooperation with the University of Glasgow and the University of Toronto, claim to have surmounted this last engineering hurdle. Tiny 20 micron ring oscillator emits constant stream of entangled photons for the quantum computers and uncrackable encryption chips of the future. (SOURCE: Università degli Studi di Pavia.) "The idea is that pumping laser...
