A member of Morello's team, Guilherme Tosi, has also created a third, entirely new type of qubit that uses both the nucleus and the electron of the atom.
The company's answer: a type of qubit that effectively fragments electrons, so that the same piece of information is held in multiple places at the same time.
Harvard's Mikhail Lukin, who led the university's team behind the 51-qubit research, told International Business Times in July there was possibly more than one method that was good at creating stable qubits and maintaining them at large scales, but added that no one was sure yet how a quantum system could be scaled up to hundreds of thousands of qubits.
Google for example, had announced earlier that it's going to achieve quantum supremacy (creating a 50 qubit processor) by the end of 2017.
In a traditional test of Landauer's principle, the reservoir would not be a single qubit but a large "heat bath" of many particles, physicists Jukka Pekola of Aalto University in Finland and Jonne Koski of ETH Zurich wrote in an e-mail.
Quantum computing or quantum information is base on a similar approach but uses quantum bit or qubit for short.
And using these qubits, the quantum particles stay in the spooky state.
trouble with qubits is that when actively measured they lose the superposition
Qubit efectivo acoplado a un bano bosonico: El primer caso considerado corresponde a un sistema bipartito que se acopla bilinealmente a un bano de osciladores armonicos.
Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP advised QuBit in the transaction.
A quantum computer would store information in "qubits," and each qubit could be both 1 and 0 at the same time.
