Quantum dice debut

Abstract:
Researchers have overcome a major obstacle to generating random numbers on quantum computers by limiting the possibilities in the otherwise unlimited randomness of a set of quantum particles. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the National Atomic Energy Commission in Argentina have shown that short sequences of random operations - randomly shifting laser pulses or magnetic fields - acting on a string of quantum bits can, in effect, generate random configurations of qubits.
