batteriesIBM Quantum Computer to Help Develop Next-gen Lithium Sulfur Batteries

A quantum computing breakthrough by researchers at IBM and Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, uses a quantum computer to model the dipole moment of three lithium-containing molecules, which brings us one step closer the next-generation lithium sulfur (Li-S) …

ibmIBM Doubles Its Quantum Volume to 32

IBM announced a new 28-qubit quantum system backend, Raleigh and achieved a system demonstrating Quantum Volume of 32. This is double the quantum volume of 16 of a prior IBM system. Quantum Volume (QV) is a hardware-agnostic metric that we …

qubitsSilicon Qubits Entangled Over a Half a Centimeter

Princeton researchers connected silicon qubits using a narrow cavity in a “wire”. It contained a single particle of light, or photon, that picks up the message from one qubit and transmits it to the next qubit. Above – Researchers at …

intelIntel Cryogenic Chip Will Speed Up Quantum Computer Development

Intel Labs unveiled a first-of-its-kind cryogenic control chip — code-named “Horse Ridge” — that will speed up development of full-stack quantum computing systems. Horse Ridge will enable control of multiple quantum bits (qubits) and set a clear path toward scaling …

futureQuantum Computers and Applications Over the Next 5 Years

This article has information from the quantum computer expert John Preskill. We are going to get more and better quality qubits with lower error rates. The overhead cost for error correction improves as gate error rate declines. The Google Quantum …

economic impactPrior 80 years and the Next 80 Years

There is a relatively common belief and idea that we are in an age of accelerating technology. Technology is advancing and there is a good chance that various super-technology will be developed over the next 80 years. The story of …

ibmIBM Hackathon Leads to Quantum Cloud Integration With Trapped Ion Devices

Qiskit, is IBM’s open-source quantum computing platform and it now works with trapped ion devices – not just the IBM superconducting systems. The first company to connect Qiskit to a trapped ion device is Austrian-based startup Alpine Quantum Technologies. Their …

futureMicrosoft’s Hunt for a Topological Quantum Computer Qubit

Microsoft is developing Majorana-based topological quantum computer qubits which will be higher-quality and lower error rate qubits. A high-quality hybrid system made of InSb nanowires with epitaxial-grown Al shells has revealed ballistic superconductivity and quantized zero-bias conductance peak. This holds …

futureGoogle’s Quantum Supremacy is a Foundation Where Quantum Systems Were Engineered to Solve Big Problems

The Google team forced themselves to work on the hardest part of quantum computers which is quantum systems engineering. Quantum systems engineering is making everything work together at the same time. The system maintained quantum operation for 200 seconds and …

microsoftMicrosoft Will Use Quantum Tools with Classical Computing

Microsoft’s topological qubit architecture is not ready. Microsofts Nadella highlighted a “quantum on classical” approach. Quantum tools will be used alongside classical computation to optimize the algorithms for simulating complex phenomena. Quantum-inspired algorithms can optimize MRI scans. Once the scan …
