Quantum logic gate lights up

Physicists in the US have taken another important step towards making a quantum computer. Duncan Steel of the University of Michigan and co-workers have created a logic gate using two electron-hole pairs - also known as "excitons" - in a quantum dot (X Li et al. 2003 Science 301 809).
