Scientists found a new way to improve the fragile and error-prone qubits that make up a quantum computing circuit — and it's strange.
Qubits tend to make errors and can rapidly decay as they transmit information. So a team of MIT engineers built artificial, superconducting "giant atoms" by coupling together multiple cubits-worth of regular atoms. These giant atoms are easier to control and far harder to destroy during normal operations. The research, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, suggests that these giant atoms could help bring about quantum computers that are actually practical.
