Qubits are the basic units of quantum computers, analogous to transistors in classical computing platforms. There are a limited number of demonstrated qubit platforms, and each has challenges with coherence (ability to maintain quantum entanglement), speed, fidelity, and/or scalability (ability to fabricate and couple multiple units). However, this invention is a new type of qubit platform that could resolve the coherence challenge, which will potentially open up new unprecedented opportunities for quantum computing.
Argonne maintains a wide-ranging science and technology portfolio that seeks to address complex challenges in interdisciplinary and innovative ways. Below is a list of all articles, highlights, profiles, projects, and organizations related specifically to quantum mechanics.
