Quantum computing with space-time curvature?

General Relativity and quantum theory, the two pillars of modern physics, although notoriously difficult to reconcile, may beautifully work together, as a new paper suggests. Moreover, the space-time curvature and twisting create, manipulate and communicate quantum information encoded in light. Arguably, the reconciliation of General Relativity and quantum physics is probably the most difficult endeavor […]
