Ten Quantum Shorts finalists selected from record number of submissions

The international Quantum Shorts competition received a record 650 entries in its last call for flash fiction that takes inspiration from quantum physics. Now, we are delighted to present the 10 finalists.

Researchers develop efficient method for producing single photon sources

A team of QCS researchers from Cardiff University and the University of Sheffield have developed a new manufacturing process to produce semiconductor light sources, capable of generating high-purity, indistinguishable single photons on demand. These single photon sources are crucial for numerous applications in the rapidly developing field of quantum technology.

Evaluating quantum computing’s societal impacts

The speed of development in quantum computing has accelerated greatly in the last few years, and as a result, the commercial sector is becoming more developed, with accompanying attention and excitement from both stock markets and policymaking circles. Alongside commercial development, potential use-cases are also becoming clearer, and thus preparing for the possible societal impacts of quantum computing becomes increasingly important.
