Controlling Nuclear Noise in Semiconductor Qubits

Fluctuations of nuclear spins may limit the lifetime of spin qubits. A technique is developed that gets such fluctuations under control.

Testing Next-Gen Qubits

The qubit, that fundamental element of information processing on a quantum computer, is getting a research boost from the National Science Foundation’s Research Advanced by Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering (RAISE): Transformational Advances in Quantum Systems (TAQS) grant for “materials spectroscopy for next generation superconducting qubits,” one of 25 grants awarded under this effort. The goal […]

What’s in a qubit?

Would a carrier of information, by any other physical phenomenon, be as powerful? Over the last few months, we’ve shared some videos from members of our research team explaining key concepts in quantum computing. We told you about superposition, entanglement, and quantum algorithms. And we took you behind the scenes and into our lab, in […]

First steps towards programming a quantum computer over the cloud

Since last year, scientists, students, and the quantum computing curious have been able to explore the world’s first and only cloud-enabled quantum computing platform, the IBM Quantum Experience. They’re running well-known canonical quantum algorithms, such as two-qubit Grover’s Search, and even trying their own experiments on our IBM Cloud-hosted five-qubit quantum processor. We designed the […]
