Researchers build all-optical transistor; device could lead to new quantum computer design

Science Recorder | Ellen Miller | Sunday, July 07, 2013

Optical computing, or the use of light instead of electricity to complete calculations, is the most significant difference between traditional and quantum computers. Using optical computing, computers can make calculations much faster than traditional computers. Optical computing, as suggested by the name, requires light particles, or photons, to function...
