ABU DHABI - Abu Dhabi University’s (ADU) Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering in the College of Engineering (CoE), Dr. Montasir Qasymeh, has received a United States patent registered under "10,824,048 B2" to develop a first-of-its-kind device that will be capable of connecting superconducting quantum computers over significant distances.Superconducting quantum computers are the extraordinary computers of the future that will surpass all current ones - and achieve ultrasensitive sensing and "unattackable" quantum communication networks.Unlike today’s conventional computers, quantum computers can process huge amounts of data and perform computations in powerful new ways that were never possible before. Potential applications of quantum computing include accelerating innovations in artificial intelligence and machine learning and tackling cybersecurity challenges.Dr. Qasymeh’s device is composed of graphene, a substance that has been hailed as a "miracle material" due to its electrical properties and the fact that it is the world’s thinnest and second strongest material.

Graphene has already innovated the technology sector and is being applied today to laptops, smartphones and headphones.Dr. Qasymeh has been working with graphene for the past seven years and has numerous publications that have studied this substance. The device converts a quantum microwave signal containing data to a laser beam using properly ...read more...
