  Recent improvements in the control of quantum systems make it seem feasible to finally build a quantum computer within a decade. While it has been shown that such a quantum computer can in principle solve certain small electronic structure problems and idealized model Hamiltonians, the highly relevant problem of directly solving a complex correlated…Read more

Exponential protection of zero modes in Majorana islands 

<1 min read

Quantum information theory has the potential to revolutionize computation, cryptography, and simulation of quantum systems. However, quantum states are fragile, and unwanted interactions with the environment destroy the information before it can be manipulated successfully. Now, a breakthrough experiment by researchers affiliated with Station Q Copenhagen has demonstrated a key property of Majorana zero modes…Read more
