Quantum computing methodology is certainly going to be a gigantic leap for next gen development
Quantum computing methodology seems to be the most talked about thing across the tech world at the moment. This is because of the fact that if the latest development is actually successfully integrated into it, we will be able to see a giant leap forward as far as quantum computing was concerned.
If the new development succeed, we will be able to take computing to the next stage where computing will actually be not limited to a binary system that is the case today.
There is no denying the fact that the quantum computing has come a long way. A report while talking about it says, â€œThis was the year 1982 when the Nobel prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman thought up the idea of a ‘quantum computer’, a computer that uses the effects of quantum mechanics to its advantage. For some time, the notion of a quantum computer was primarily of theoretical interest only, but recent developments have bought the idea to everybody’s attention. One such development was the invention of an algorithm to factor large numbers on a quantum computer, by Peter Shor (Bell Laboratories). By using this algorithm, a quantum computer would be able to crack codes much more quickly than any ordinary (or classical) computer couldâ€.
But with the latest development things are going to be much better and improved. Scientists working for the University of Chicago were able to blast a region of a diamond which enclosed a nitrogen atom in itself with the help of recurring and fast moving pulses of a laser beam. This was simply magical as they were able to not just control the quantum state of the area but also study the electron state of one solitary electron. The news is making headlines across the world obviously due to its huge importance for scientists across the world.
David Awschalom who led the study seems to be very pleased with the new development. â€œThese defects have garnered great interest over the past decade, providing a test-bed system for developing semiconductor quantum bits as well as nanoscale sensorsâ€¦Here, we were able to harness light to completely control the quantum state of this defect at extremely high speedsâ€ says he. David Awschalom is a renowned name in the field and teaches molecular engineering at University of Chicago.
Others too are excited with the development. There is no denying the fact that the latest finding has great repercussions for the future of computer science or quantum computing. So far computing has been limited to a binary system, where information can be either classified as a â€˜yesâ€™ or â€˜noâ€™, or 0 and 1but now things are going to change completely. F. Joseph Heremans, a University of Chicago researcher says, â€œItâ€™s quite a versatile technique, providing a full picture of the excited state of the quantum defectâ€¦Previous work on the nitrogen-vacancy center has hinted at some of these processes, but here, simply through the application of these ultrafast pulses, we get a much richer understanding of this quantum beast.â€ So things are going to be very different with your system and mine too in the days to come.
