Popular Articles

More accessible articles, written for a broader public audience, but still useful in understanding concepts in, and the history of Quantum Computation and Information.

*Physics World* is IoP's (Institute of Physics, UK) well known physics magazine, covering all areas of physics and stories from the worlds of research, industry, and education. *Physics World* is well read and well respected for it's communication of physics with all audiences. **The March 1998 issue** of *Physics World* had a special focus (with five articles) on Quantum Information. Those articles are:

-- Introduction to Special Issue, "**Quantum Information**" (p. 33)

-- A. Zeilinger, "**Fundamentals of Quantum Information**" (pp. 35-40)

-- W. Tittel, G. Ribordy & N. Gisin, "**Quantum Cryptography**" (pp. 41-45)

-- D. Deutsch & A. Ekert, "**Quantum Computation**" (pp. 47-52)
