Error-Free Quantum Computing Gets Real

Fundamental Breakthrough: Errorless Quantum Computing Becomes Reality

Artist’s impression of gate operations on logic quantum bits, which are protected against defects by means of quantum error correction. Credits: Johannes Kn├╝nz Demonstration of the fundamentals of fault-tolerant quantum computing Due to the high-quality workmanship, errors when processing and storing information have become rare in modern computers. However, for critical applications, where even simple …
