Physicists have taken another step toward making quantum computing a reality. A team of researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta recently set a record for the length of time that quantum information can be stored in and retrieved from an ensemble of very cold atoms. The computing method would distribute entangled quantum bits -- two correlated data bits -- over long distances. Alex Kuzmich, associate professor at Georgia Tech's School of Physics, and fellow Georgia Tech researchers set the quantum-memory storage record.
