A quantum computer to tackle fundamental science problems

For more than 50 years, Moore's Law has reigned supreme. The observation that the number of transistors on a computer chip doubles roughly every two years has set the pace for our modern digital revolution—making smartphones, ...

How to measure a molecule's energy using a quantum computer

Simulating molecules on quantum computers just got much easier with IBM's superconducting quantum hardware. In a recent research article published in Nature, Hardware-efficient Variational Quantum Eigensolver for Small Molecules ...

Quantum technologies to revolutionize 21st century

Is quantum technology the future of the 21st century? On the occasion of the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, this is the key question to be explored today in a panel discussion with the Nobel Laureates Serge Haroche, ...

Team tightens bounds on quantum information 'speed limit'

If you're designing a new computer, you want it to solve problems as fast as possible. Just how fast is possible is an open question when it comes to quantum computers, but physicists at the National Institute of Standards ...

D-Wave chip passes rigorous tests

With cutting-edge technology, sometimes the first step scientists face is just making sure it actually works as intended.
