Squeezed Light and Quantum Clockspeeds
Why do some quantum computations require entanglement while others don’t? Squeezed photons may hold the answer, say physicists.
The world’s fastest computer is the Tianhe-2 supercomputer at National Super Computer Center in Guangzhou, China. It consists of 16,000 computer nodes, each with two Intel Ivy Bridge Xeon processors and three Xeon Phi coprocessor. Together these make it capable of 33.86 quadrillion floating point calculations per second, more than any other computing machine on the planet.
