Today, it was reported that scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and at Google made a significant advance that brings them a step closer to developing a quantum computer. They had succeeded in creating an error-correction system that stabilizes a fragile array of nine qubits. The researchers said they had accomplished this by creating circuits in which additional qubits are used to observe the state of the computing qubits without altering their state.
At QxBranch, we welcome this important development … it is one more step in improving our rapidly accelerating effort to build and operate quantum computers.
