Quantum Computer Breakthrough: New Blueprint For Better, Faster Qubits

Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI have put forward a detailed plan of how faster and better defined quantum bits — qubits — can be created. The central elements are magnetic atoms from the class of so-called rare-earth metals, which would be selectively implanted into the crystal lattice of a material. Each of these atoms represents one qubit. The researchers have demonstrated how these qubits can be activated, entangled, used as memory bits, and read out.

Quantum Optimization

The key to the incredible speed of a quantum computer lies in its ability to fabricate and manipulate quantum bits, or qubits, typically artificial particles such as ions, superconducting oscillators or protons. Quantum properties allow qubits to form entanglement, a phenomenon that provides far more processing power than the binary bits that drive today's classical computers. Specially designed quantum algorithms, which are lists of operations -- analogous to a cooking recipe -- that tell a computer to do something can further speed up calculations to accelerate scientific advances.
