Two-dimensional quantum computing breakthrough

According to a Simons Foundation press release issued on Wednesday, researchers have created a phase of matter that acts as though it exists in two time dimensions. By flashing a series of laser pulses at atoms inside a quantum computer that were inspired by the Fibonacci numbers, the researchers produced the odd material. Data that is error-proof Information stored with the standard setups currently utilized in quantum computers is much less error-proof than information stored in the odd new phase of matter. According to Philipp Dumitrescu, the study's primary author, the data can last for a lot longer before being jumbled, potentially making quantum computing practical. Dumitrescu, a research fellow at the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Quantum Physics in New York C...
