Yale University scientists have reached a milestone in their efforts to extend the durability and dependability of quantum information.
For the first time, researchers at Yale have crossed the "break even" point in preserving a bit of quantum information for longer than the lifetime of its constituent parts. They have created a novel system to encode, spot errors, decode, and correct errors in a quantum bit, also known as a "qubit." The development of such a robust method of Quantum Error Correction (QEC) has been one of the biggest remaining hurdles in quantum computation.
The findings were published online July 20 in the journal Nature.To read more, click here.
