Large-scale Quantum Processor, Programmable, Solid State. Flexibility to implement a variety of algorithms without modifying hardware enabled the classical computer to tackle any task from the simplest to the most complex. Taking this flexibility to quantum computing is a crucial next step to quantum computing’s ‘big advance.’
To date, a programmable quantum processor has not been fully realized in solid-state, ambient condition (room temperature) conditions.
Researchers in Hefei, China, have shown re-programmable quantum computing under these conditions. Their programmable quantum processor is capable of two-qubit operations and is reconfigurable with fifteen parameters – illustrating solid-state spin-based quantum architecture at room temperature.
