Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have developed a chip that can be used to achieve “quantum superiority”. This means that a processor can perform almost impossible tasks for a classic computer.
east Work was published on Wednesday by Advances in science, which describes, “photonic qubits are key enablers for quantum information processing that can be implemented over a distributed quantum network.”
The nanochip has the capacity to produce hundreds of Photons (light particles) is used to store large amounts of data in the form of Quantum information and used as hardware in the quantum computers of the future, according to the team of the University of Copenhagen.
The Team will use their photon sources at the moment for the development of New advanced quantum simulators to solve tough problems Biochemicals that could even be used in new drug development.
Google is an initiator in the quantum advantage
The technology company is a pioneer in ensuring quantum supremacy. The next scholar Niels Bohr Institute of University of Copenhagenin cooperation with the University of Bochum worked with google to create the the world’s first quantum computer.
The difference between a traditional computer and quantum computers lies in the use of a system of Quantum bits (qubits) that keeps information in two digits of the binary code, 1 and 0, classic computers use bits and have to select the data storage in a one of the two figures.
That is, a computer Google this class culminated in 200 seconds a task that the fastest supercomputer in the world would complete in about 10,000 years. However, the IBM company questioned the impact.
One of the authors of the study, Professor Peter Lodahl, points to “a great step forward and the first step towards unexplored territory in the world of quantum physics” because the team guarantees that it “has the tools to build a quantum simulator that can outperform a classical computer”.
Despite the Specialists have not yet carried out a real quantum advantage experiment, the test article that the Nanochip states that it “creates a quantum mechanical resource that can be used to achieve a proven technology”.
