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 Computers May Have Higher Potential Speeds

A theorist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has shown that, if quantum computer are fully realized, there may be fewer limits to their speed than previously put forth. The findings—described as a “thought experiment” by NIST’s …
