Quantum Hypercomputing by means of Evanescent Photons

Nowadays quantum computation is probably considered as the most promising way to achieve superfast calculation performances to be implemented in the next generation of hyper-computers. Nevertheless, the realization of an hypercomputer, namely a system able to perform countable infinite computational steps within a finite time, is usually considered not allowed due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle that limits the energy required by such steps. This limitation affects quantum algorithms as well as conventional computation.

The studies so far performed by FoPRC theoretical and advanced technoloy divison show it could be possible to bypass such limitation by considering a quantum system making use of evanescent photons generated by some physical processes.
