Latest Quantum error correction Stories
Even computers are error-prone.
A new five-qubit array from UCSB’s Martinis Group is on the threshold of making a quantum computer technologically feasible to build
With cutting-edge technology, sometimes the first step scientists face is just making sure it actually works as intended.
By using light, researchers at UC Santa Barbara have manipulated the quantum state of a single atomic-sized defect in diamond –– the nitrogen-vacancy center –– in a method that not only allows for more unified control than conventional processes, but is more versatile, and opens up the possibility of exploring new solid-state quantum systems.
A girl's best friend has stepped into the digital age as scientists from the University of Southern California have built a quantum computer inside a diamond.
Thanks to advances in experimental design, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have achieved a record-low probability of error in quantum information processing with a single quantum bit (qubit)—the first published error rate small enough to meet theoretical requirements for building viable quantum computers.
A general rule in data processing is that disturbances cause the distortion or deletion of information during data storage or transfer.
Quantum computers should be much easier to build than previously thought, because they can still work with a large number of faulty or even missing components.
The rules that govern the world of the very small, quantum mechanics, are known for being bizarre.
