It has been revealed that quantum computing will soon be a reality. Research team at IBM has revealed that they have got success in their work, which will enable them to develop a full-scale quantum computer.
Mark Ketchen, who is the Manager of physics of information at the IBM's TJ Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY, affirmed that the creation will reduce data errors to a significant number. IBM said that though they have got a big success in quantum computing research, it will take 10 to 15 years to make quantum computer a reality.
Till now, they have reached up to a level where data checking and error rates can be easily detected. The main aim of the quantum computing would be to maintain excellence of conventional methods and also to keep on experimenting new micro fabrication techniques and quantum mechanical properties in quibits.
“Now things are getting into the ballpark where you can build something and get the right answer. It also says we have to start thinking more seriously about building more complicated things and putting them together”, said Ketchen.
IBM said that their quantum technology is built on silicon substrate, which uses aluminum and niobium superconductors. The main aim of aluminum and niobium superconductors is to use them as two superconducting electrodes and keep them deciphering for maximum period.
Ketchen said that not a single element, but it is combination of all the processes, which results in increasing the threshold. As per him, the threshold is about 10 to 100 microseconds, which is quite swift in comparison to advancements made some 10 years ago.
IBM said that they have reached to the threshold level, which is needed for a quantum computer. However, it will take some time for things to reach at the desired level.
