New Quantum Computing Discovery

The search continues.

This New Discovery Could Put Quantum Computers Within Closer Reach

Researchers at Florida State University's National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) have found a way to dampen quantum bits' (qubits) susceptibility to magnetic disruptions, or "noise," using atomic clock transitions. The researchers say this breakthrough could help remove a major obstacle to workable quantum computers.

The MagLab team utilized carefully designed tungsten-oxide molecules containing a single magnetic holmium ion, and successfully maintained the coherent operation of a holmium qubit for 8.4 microseconds. MagLab Dorsa Komijani says that duration is potentially long enough for performing useful computational tasks. ... ."
