In early 2011, a pair of theoretical computer scientists at MIT proposed an optical experiment that would harness the weird laws of quantum mechanics to perform a computation impossible on conventional computers. In December, four different groups of experimental physicists reported the completion of rudimentary versions of Aaronson and Arkhipov’s experiment within a span of three days. Justin Dove, a graduate student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a member of MIT’s Optical and Quantum Communications Group is a coauthor of the paper from the University of Queensland.
