Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility Study Moves Quantum Revolution Closer to Reality

Researchers used Oak Ridge National Laboratory‘s Quantum Computing User Program (QCUP) to achieve major improvements in quantum fidelity, a potential step toward more accurate, reliable quantum networks and supercomputers.

Quantum computing relies on transfer and storage of information via quantum bits, known as qubits, rather than the traditional single-value bits used by classical computers. Qubits, unlike classical bits, use the properties of quantum mechanics to store more than one value at a time, which enables transmission of vast amounts of information greater than possible otherwise. The technology holds promise for solving challenges, such as unhackable encryption standards, that have so far stumped traditional computers — but first scientists must achieve consistently accurate results.
