A new class, or qubits, of quantum computers are being developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.
The quantum computers will use quantum bits (qubits) of light and can be used to simulate the behaviour of quantum systems.
The research team claims that the qubits can be tuned in a way that allows the system to operate more efficiently.
The team is now testing their system at the Advanced Technology and Projects Accelerator (ATAP) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
“Our goal is to be able to design qubits that can do things like read from the ground or do quantum computation,” said co-author Dr Mark Coyle from Berkeley.
“And that’s something that’s a really important goal for a lot of research in the area of quantum computation, because you’re basically using a quantum computer to do the same thing, but in a totally different way.”
The goal is not to be perfect, because we’ve shown that there’s this really wide range of performance, but to be a bit more efficient, to be somewhat less computationally intensive,” Dr Coyle said.
That’s the qubit, and then the quark is the way you interact with the system,” he said. “
Our system has a quantum key, a qubit that’s the only way you can encode and store information in the quantum system.
That’s the qubit, and then the quark is the way you interact with the system,” he said.
“If you think about the two-qubit system, the two qubits are connected by a pair of photons, and if you want to read from one of them, you have to use a second photon.”
The team says that it has a large number of designs in its quantum system and that it is being developed as a research project. “
We have a really large quantum key that can be a couple of tens of nanometres in size, so the system has that ability to interact in a very efficient way with other quantum systems, even in a noisy environment.”

“This is an important first step, because now we’re looking at this with an eye towards building these systems that will be very useful for a number of applications, from very large quantum computing systems to very large supercomputers, and from very small quantum computers to very small supercomputing systems,” Dr Chris Waggoner, from Berkeley’s department of physics, said.
