Qubit Randomization
Technology Review: Quantum Dice Debut: "Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the National Atomic Energy Commission in Argentina have shown that short sequences of random operations—randomly shifting laser pulses or magnetic fields—acting on a string of quantum bits can, in effect, generate random configurations of qubits."
It's been long known how to randomize qubit states, so this new method must be much more time efficient to be of note...unfortunately this article does not mention the new algorithm's complexity. Anyone with a subscription to Science care to fill us in?
