Image of the week: quantum measurement

Quantum physics has revolutionized our understanding of information processing and enables computational speed-ups that are unattainable using classical computers. At least that is the case according to Stefanie Barz (University of Oxford, UK) in her new tutorial review in Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics.

Her article provides our image of the week this week:

It is just one of many excellent diagrams Barz uses to illustrate the physics behind quantum information processing. Not only do her figures help the reader understand the complexities of the topic, but they demonstrate how important a good, simple figure can be in enhancing the clarity and quality of a manuscript.

We hope you enjoy the article!
