Demonstrating the viability of universal quantum computation using teleportation and single-qubit operations
We show that single quantum bit operations, Bell-basis measurements and certain entangled quantum states such as Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger states—all of which are within the reach of current technology—are sufficient to construct a universal quantum computer. Expand

Experimental realization of Shor's quantum factoring algorithm using nuclear magnetic resonance
The number of steps any classical computer requires in order to find the prime factors of an l-digit integer N increases exponentially with l, at least using algorithms known at present. FactoringExpand

Suppression of heating rates in cryogenic surface-electrode ion traps.
Dense arrays of trapped ions provide one way of scaling up ion trap quantum information processing. However, miniaturization of ion traps is currently limited by sharply increasing motional stateExpand

Detecting and preventing "multiple-account" cheating in massive open online courses
We describe a cheating strategy enabled by the features of massive open online courses (MOOCs) and detectable by virtue of the sophisticated data systems. Expand
