…In research on quantum computers, one aspect that has been mostly neglected until now is the generation of heat…

Physicists from Konstanz, Grenoble and Helsinki now focus their attention on heat as an interference factor – and have developed a method to experimentally measure the heat generated by a superconducting quantum system.

…With their experimental evidence, the researchers want to draw attention to the thermodynamic processes of a quantum system. “Our message to the quantum computing world is: Be careful, and watch out for heat generation. We can even measure the exact amount”, adds Clemens Winkelmann (Néel Institute, Grenoble)…
