Description:  This is a photograph of an ordinary diamond scattering sunlight into colors. In the lead story, researchers are attempting to build a solid-state quantum computer with lasers and nitrogen-infused diamonds using spectral hole burning. The researchers tune the nitrogen atoms to a range of light wavelengths, or colors. This sets the stage for the researchers to link the atoms via quantum entanglement, which is the basis for quantum computing.
