### PROF. Q*BIT'S QUIRKY QUANTUM CHAT

A somewhat different excursion into the quantum world with its phenomena such as superposition and entanglement.

The quantum world works according to bizarre rules. Experts use strange terms to describe their research. Here is a little clarification.

Qubits

Superposition

Entanglement

Quantum coherent state

They say that everyone makes mistakes. When errors occur more and more often, however, it can become a nuisance. This is exactly what is happening with today’s quantum computers: their computing units, the quantum bits, are extremely susceptible to disturbances, and thus to errors. Researchers at Jülich are looking for ways to find and correct these errors.

Superconducting qubits

Semiconductor qubits

Trapped ion qubits

Hybrid qubits

Quantum simulators

Quantum annealers

Quantum computers

Emulators
