Data teleportation, entanglement, complete encription and qubits all will evolve as lab-grown diamonds growing technologies get better.
John Ciraldo, Chief Technology Officer at WD Lab-Grown Diamonds
Reading last week's New York Times article: ‘Quantum Internet’ Inches Closer With Advance in Data Teleportation was like reading a first edition Robert A. Heinlein sci-fi thriller. But it sure sounds like quantum computing isn't sci-fi any more. In fact it's getting closer every day.
And if gem quality diamonds were the first killer application for lab-grown diamond technology, quantum computing will certainly be among the next and it could easily dwarf gem diamond production.
That is once it finally gets going. And right now that's the big challenge for the lab-growing diamond scientists of the world.
It's obvious now that those scientists have their work cut out for them to develop diamond product to support quantum computing and they are all really busy right now just keeping up with the skyrocketing global demand for gem quality lab-grown diamonds.
Jewelry manufacturers, retailers and consumers are throwing money at prime diamond growers throughout the world and it's hard to stop gem production and switchover to the very experimental tech involved in growing for quantum computing.
From a very simplistic perspective....growing gem diamonds means growing vertically and growing for computer applications requires growing horizontally.
John Ciraldo, CTO of WD Lab Grown Diamonds, among the world's leading scientists in the lab-grown diamond space, knows more about this than most. Here's what he had to say about growing diamonds for quantum computing vs for gem production...
"Compared to gemstones, quantum applications for diamond produce unique challenges from a growth perspective. In addition to the large planar area we have to achieve, special care has to be taken to produce pristine material that will not interfere with the delicate quantum states in the crystal. But given the incredible potential of quantum technology, WD is excited to leverage our growth expertise to help make this technology a reality."
The possibilities for quantum computing, using lab-grown diamonds, are quite amazing and include:
In quantum computing, a qubit or quantum bit is a basic unit of quantum information—the quantum version of the classic binary bit physically realized with a two-state device. A qubit is a two-state (or two-level) quantum-mechanical system, one of the simplest quantum systems displaying the peculiarity of quantum mechanics. (from Wikipedia)
Quantum entanglement is a bizarre, counterintuitive phenomenon that explains how two subatomic particles can be intimately linked to each other even if separated by billions of light-years of space. Despite their vast separation, a change induced in one will affect the other. (from Space.com)
Quantum teleportation involves a sender and receiver sharing a pair of entangled qubits, such that the quantum state of each qubit depends on that of the other (from nature.com)
Stay tuned to this space for more on this exciting growth category for lab-grown diamond. The future is quickly approaching.
