Team Has Made First Quantum Computer Bridge
Technology continues to move forward daily. There has been notable progress especially in computers and smartphones lately. These devices have made life easier for many people. There has also been the search to make computers even more mobile and smaller. That is happening as scientists have found a way to bridge quantum computers.
Researchers from Sandia National Laboratories and Harvard University have created a quantum computer bridge that could like quantum computers together, according to Science Daily. Small quantum computers have already been made, and it's only a matter of time before they could be linked together.
Sandia researchers Ed Bielejec, Jose Pacheco and Daniel Perry have replaced a carbon atom of a diamond with that of a silicon atom. The carbon atoms are smaller than the silicon atom, and this has caused them to distance themselves from the silicon atom. The silicon atom then floats as if on air, which makes them more responsive to stimuli since they aren't restricted by other atoms.
"We can create thousands of implant locations, which all yield working quantum devices because we plant the atoms well below the surface of the substrate and anneal them in place," explained Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho.
Once the silicon atoms are in place, laser-generated photons then begin to put these silicon atoms into the next atomic energy state, as Sandia National Laboratories' site explains. The silicon electrons though would go back to the lowest possible energy state. When they do so they release quantized photons that carry with them information.
Quantum computers differ from the computers that we use daily. Modern computers rely on transistors, whereas quantum computers would rely more on quantum bits. Quantum computers though are still not that developed even now, and there is a long way to go before a working model is made. The work done at Sandia National Laboratories might be the first step towards making the quantum computer into a reality.
