Quantum future: computing in silicon hits 99% accuracy

Researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) have proven that near error-free quantum computing is possible, a key step in the road to building silicon-based quantum computers, the processors of the future.

“Today’s publication in Nature shows our operations were 99% error-free,” says UNSW’s Andrea Morello, lead author of the research.

“When the errors are so rare, it becomes possible to detect them and correct them when they occur. This shows that it is possible to build quantum computers that have enough scale, and enough power, to handle meaningful computation.”
