Error-free quantum computer is coming closer
Quantum computers are expected to be the computers of the future. However, today's systems are still too error-prone for practical use. In two publications in the current issue of the renowned scientific journal Nature, a team around Prof. Markus Müller from Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University has now presented two new solutions, which are intended to protect the results from errors. In collaboration with researchers from Switzerland, Germany and Canada, they were involved in the implementation of a superconducting quantum computer chip that allows one to correct both fundamental types of errors affecting quantum systems.
