Universal control using the quantum Zeno effect Abstract: The Zeno effect occurs in quantum systems when a very strong measurement is applied, which can alter the dynamics in non-trivial ways. Despite being dissipative, the measurement divides the Hilbert space into… Read More »Universal control using the quantum Zeno effect
For the first time in silicon, a team of engineers led by Andrea Morello at UNSW Sydney has demonstrated a three-qubit quantum processor in silicon where every operation – one-qubit logic, two-qubit logic, and qubit initialisation and measurement – is… Read More »Quantum operations with 99% fidelity – the key to practical quantum computers
