Scientists have developed a programmable quantum processor made with silicon, an advance that brings quantum computers closer to reality. The research, published in the journal Nature, used microwave energy to align two electron particles suspended in silicon, then used them to perform a set of test calculations.
Researchers, including those from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, hope that by using silicon, quantum computers will be more easy to control and manufacture. Quantum computers are incredibly powerful machines that take a new approach to processing information….
