Quantum computing closer to reality with new materials

Vuckovic’s Stanford team is developing materials that can trap a single, isolated electron. Working with collaborators worldwide, they have recently tested three different approaches to the problem, one of which can operate at room temperature – a critical step if …

Supercomputer simulates 45 qubit quantum computer

Arxiv- Half Petabyte Simulation of a 45-Qubit Quantum Circuit Near-term quantum computers will soon reach sizes that are challenging to directly simulate, even when employing the most powerful supercomputers. Yet, the ability to simulate these early devices using classical computers …
