Quantum computing gets a step closer

Abstract:
Scientists have witnessed an atom and a photon - a small packet of light - share the same information. This is an important milestone in the quest to create a 'quantum computer', which could operate much faster than conventional computers. A quantum computer would process information using atoms and other tiny particles, rather than the transistors and circuit boards of standard computers. The research, published in Nature1, shows that an atom can act as a bit of 'computer memory', and that light can carry the atom’s information from one place to another.
