53-Qubit Quantum Simulator Observes Quantum Magnetism in Action

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
COLLEGE PARK, Md., Jan. 2, 2018 — Two independent teams of scientists have used more than 50 interacting atomic quantum bits (qubits) to mimic magnetic quantum matter, setting what they believe to be a new record for quantum simulation. In recent years, scientists have controlled 10 to 20 atomic qubits in small-scale quantum simulations. As the basis for its quantum simulation, a research team from the University of Maryland (UMD) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) used up to 53 individual ytterbium ions, i.e., charged atoms trapped in place by gold-coated and razor-sharp electrodes.
