Quantum Supremacy is Very Near

In 2016, IBM made a five-qubit quantum processor available to developers, researchers and programmers for experimentation via its cloud portal. In May, 2017 IBM announced a 16 qubit processor for its cloud-based quantum computer and a more tightly engineered 17-qubit …

Mass Producible Quantum Computers

A team of researchers from MIT, Harvard University, and Sandia National Laboratories reports a new technique for creating targeted defects in diamond materials, which is simpler and more precise than its predecessors and could benefit diamond-based quantum computing devices. Quantum …

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 …
