Measuring entanglement without destroying it on commercial quantum computers

In quantum mechanics, the act of measurement produces unavoidable perturbation (also called “back-action”) on the state of the measured system. This effect is, in many cases, not desirable, as back-action often limits the precision of repeated measurements. However, so-called Quantum Non-Demolition (QND) measurements ensure that the unavoidable and deleterious back-action is diverted onto other system […]

New world record for qubit storage

Computers, smartphones, GPS: quantum physics has enabled many technological advances. It is now opening up new fields of research in cryptography (the art of coding messages) with the aim of developing ultra-secure telecommunications networks. There is one obstacle, however: after a few hundred kilometers within an optical fiber, the photons that carry the qubits or […]

Quantum errors made more tolerable

11.02.2022 By:  Andreas Trabesinger Image: The experimental chamber in which the experiments of de Neeve and colleagues [1] were performed. (Photo: ETH Zurich/D-​PHYS Home group) In modern computing devices, literally billions of transistors work restlessly in almost perfect harmony. The keys to producing near-​perfect computation from devices made from imperfect components are the use of […]

Landmark research grant for quantum materials: Carbon nanomaterials for future quantum technologies

Artistic rendering of a graphene nanoribbon adsorbed on a gold surface and probed with the sharp tip of a scanning tunneling microscope. These tailor made carbon structures exhibit quantum effects that are stable and can be manipulated even at room temperature. That could be a silver bullet for building entirely new kinds of quantum computers. […]
