A beam splitter is a device, like the one depicted here, that bifurcates a beam of light. An experiment proposed by MIT researchers, which relies on beam splitters, would exploit the strange behavior of quantum particles to perform calculations that are hopelessly time consuming on conventional computers.

The quantum singularity

A new experiment would use quantum effects to perform otherwise intractable calculations, but conducting it should be easier than building a quantum computer.
