Controlling Qubit Stability. Keeping a quantum bit [qubit] stable is one of the key challenges to scaling, and really making functional, quantum computers.
Maintaining stability, i.e. the data contained in a qubit is the key to a quantum computer’s power. “Energy losses take the state of the qubit from 1 to 0, destroying stored quantum information at the same time.
Consequently, scientists all over the globe have traditionally worked to remove all sources of energy loss” from quantum systems. Researchers at Aalto University have developed a method to control dissipation of energy. This is critical for the implementation of quantum logic and quantum computers.
