29 Nov New Record in Quantum Computing Stability
Scientists in Australia have developed a quantum bit that’s 10 times more stable than existing technologies, and the new record could vastly expand the kinds of calculations quantum computers can perform.
Whereas conventional computers process information recorded in binary bits that either take a 0 or 1 value, quantum computers use quantum bits – also called qubits – that can occupy 0, 1, or a superposition that can be both at the same time.
“This quantum bit is more versatile and more long-lived than the electron alone, and will allow us to build more reliable quantum computers”, says researcher Arne Laucht.
