IBMs Progress to Practical Fault Tolerant Quantum Computers

Many experts predict that practical fault tolerant quantum computing (FTQC) will require millions of physical quantum bits (qubits) but in August, 2023 IBM scientists published the discovery of new error correction codes that work with ten times fewer qubits. Practical error correction is far from a solved problem. However, these new codes and other advances …

IonQ Has 29 Algorithmic Qubit Quantum Computer

IONQ met their technical target of 29 algorithmic qubits (#AQ) seven months earlier than expected. IonQ Forte is their newest quantum system. IonQ Forte represents a 16x step up in power from the IonQ Aria system. IonQ’s qubits are trapped ionized ytterbium atoms, a silvery rare-earth metal. Each ytterbium atom is perfectly identical to every …

Atom Computing’s Neutral Atom Quantum Computer Sets Coherence Record

Atom Computing has closed a $60M in Series B funding, which brings their total funding to $80 million. They are building a larger second-generation quantum computing system that can run commercial use-cases. Atom Computing’s record-setting qubit coherence was 40 seconds plus or minus 7 seconds. That may not seem very long compared to everyday life, …

Diamond Qubit Quantum Computer Deployed at Cray Supercomputer Center

The Australian Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre has installed a room-temperature diamond-based quantum computer developed by Quantum Brilliance. They use synthetic diamonds to run at room temperature. It is a nitrogen-vacancy center based qubit, an imperfection within diamonds, which can be manipulated at room temperature. The system has been paired with Setonix, Pawsey’s HPE Cray EX …
