PORTLAND, Ore.—Recently I had to explain to a reader why critics say that D-Wave's so-called quantum computer was not a "real" quantum computer, the answer for which he accepted on my authority. However, the question kept nagging me in the back on ...

But it wouldn't be much of a quantum computer if it stopped there. To achieve what's known as superposition, when a qubit is both '0' and '1' simultaneously, the D-Wave chip must be cooled to temperatures approaching absolute zero (-273.15 C)—among ...

For more than 20 years, Ivan Deutsch has struggled to design the guts of a working quantum computer. He has not been alone. The quest to harness the computational might of quantum weirdness continues to occupy thousands of researchers around the ...

The team of researchers from IBM demonstrated that they could detect and measure the two types of quantum errors (bit-flip and phase-flip) that will occur in any real quantum computer. Until now, it was only possible to address one type of quantum ...

First, what that would mean: A quantum computer harnesses the science of the very small—the strange behavior of subatomic particles—to solve problems that are computationally infeasible for a classical computer or simply take too long. How molecules ...

The IBM team was able to detect and measure two key types of quantum error (called bit-flip and phase-flip) that will occur in any real quantum computer. "Up until now, researchers have been able to detect bit-flip or phase-flip quantum errors, but ...
