These logical qubit designs will be foundational to future, more complex quantum computing systems.
Other researchers say that while the silicon work is an impressive physics feat, engineers pursuing alternate quantum computing platforms are farther along and years ago demonstrated gates that manipulate two quantum bits, or qubits.
If quantum computers are to become a reality, the ability to conduct one- and two-qubit calculations are essential," said Dzurak, who jointly led the team in 2012 who demonstrated the first ever silicon qubit, also reported in Nature.
Quantum information is very fragile because all existing qubit technologies lose their information when interacting with matter and electromagnetic radiation.
NEW YORK, March 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Just six months after securing $26 million in Series B funding led by Accel Partners, Qubit, the leading provider of global Customer Experience Management (CXM) technology, has announced the launch of its customer-centric CXM platform Visitor Cloud.
1 shows a qubit in a Block sphere where there are two basic states |0> and |1> and a generalization of a quantum state represented by |[PSI]> [18].
A quantum computer performs calculations by manipulating qubits within a register.
quantum computers, which use qubits instead of bits.
The research team at Delft first created qubits, units of quantum data that can hold multiple values simultaneously, out of classical bits, which were electrons trapped in diamonds at extremely low temperatures that allow their quantum properties, like spin, to be observed.
Chunming Yin, said the new approach opens up the possibility of using light to couple the atoms, or qubits, together to form a quantum computer.
There are issues that need to be improved in these qubits so you can have a quantum state that lasts a very long time without, essentially, decaying," Lee said.
The qubit is similar to a bit in that when measured, its value will be either 0 or 1.
