Abstract

The end of the twentieth century saw the coming together of two of its greatest intellectual achievements -- digital information processing and quantum mechanics. What lies ahead of Moore's road map of ever shrinking microprocessor components is not just a tinier version of devises, but a broad new principle based on quantum superpositions and nonlocal entanglement. A particularly promising scheme employs some of the coolest matter around -- the optical lattice -- neutral atoms trapped in a virtual crystal of light.
