Google researchers demonstrated they could reduce errors in calculations while increasing the number of physical quantum bits (qubits) in a 'logical qubit,' a building block of large-scale quantum computers.
A UK University team developed a system able to transport information from one chip to another with a reliability of 99.999993% at record speeds.
Another record has been broken on the way to fully operational and capable quantum computers: the complete control of a 6-qubit quantum processor in silicon. Researchers are calling it "a major stepping stone" for the technology.
Australian scientists and Microsoft Corporation invented a single chip that can generate control signals for thousands of qubits, when the world’s biggest quantum computers currently operate with just 50 or so qubits.
An ambitious plan to build a quantum computer the size of a soccer field could soon become a reality. A startup founded by the researchers behind the idea has just come out of stealth with $4.5 million in funding.
Quantum teleportation is an key way to transmit info in quantum computing. In a new step forward, researchers say it may be possible between electrons.
Scientists have discovered that terahertz light - light at trillions of cycles per second - can act as a control knob to accelerate supercurrents. That can help open up the quantum world of matter and energy at atomic and subatomic scales.
A team of researchers from Singapore and Australia have implemented a prototype quantum device that can generate and analyze a quantum superposition of possible futures.
IBM has announced that its System Q One quantum computer has doubled in performance in each of the past two years. IBM is one of the big-name companies working to create a truly useful quantum computer.
