First On-chip Nanoscale Optical Quantum Memory Developed

Ever heard of Schrodinger's cat? Of course you have, but at the very same time, you haven't. Now you know how quantum memory works, and at the same time you do not. It would be great to have this much memory available in your computer, but if you didn't at the very same time that would suck. I do know one thing for sure, you guys that bitch about apps using too much memory would not know what to gripe about, or you would.

Quantum memory stores information in a similar fashion to the way traditional computer memory does, but on individual quantum particles—in this case, photons of light. This allows it to take advantage of the peculiar features of quantum mechanics (such as superposition, in which a quantum element can exist in two distinct states simultaneously) to store data more efficiently and securely.
