Constant-time quantum computers more powerful than classical counterparts

Scientists prove there are certain problems that require only a fixed circuit depth when done on a quantum computer no matter ho

Quantum computers can solve a linear algebra problem faster than classical computers, according to a new study published in Science. The finding proves that constant-depth quantum circuits are more powerful than their classical counterparts, and provides a new sense of how quantum technology will be a key to more powerful computing.

Generating multiphoton entanglement on a superconducting chip

A step further for secure quantum communication and scalable quantum computing

A team of researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) generated three-photon entanglement on a superconducting chip using a new, scalable technique.

The experiment, published in Physical Review Applied, could lead to advances in quantum communication protocols like secret sharing and in quantum computing power.
