Moore’s Law states that computer processing power will double every 2 years, but we may be reaching a limit to this exponential growth. Thankfully, some new technologies may be turning that around.  

PBS Space Time: Time Crystals!

In this episode of the Space Time Journal Club Matt discusses how two independent research teams created their own Time Crystals, a form of matter that breaks time translational symmetry and could be used in quantum computers.  

Nature Video: Quantum computers: Computing the impossible

This Nature video explains and explores the concept of quantum computers, how it could crack problems that are impossible for conventional computers. But first researchers have to build one that’s big enough to be useful. The animation looks at the challenges and rewards of creating a quantum computer.
