A Simple Crystal Could Finally Give Us Large-Scale Quantum Computing, Scientists Say

Vaccine and drug development, artificial intelligence, transport and logistics, climate science – these are all areas that stand to be transformed by the development of a full-scale quantum computer. And there has been explosive growth in quantum computing investment over the past decade.

 

Yet current quantum processors are relatively small in scale, with fewer than 100 qubits – the basic building blocks of a quantum computer. Bits are the smallest unit of information in computing, and the term qubits stems from “quantum bits”.

While early quantum processors have been crucial for demonstrating the potential of quantum computing, realizing globally significant
