The worlds of science, academia and business have come together like never before, and we have seen some significant advancements in quantum technologies in the past five years. Prototype devices with 50 qubits have already been developed – the theoretical capacity required to achieve quantum supremacy. However, significant progress remains to be made in creating the basic building blocks of quantum computers – qubits are still work in progress. Meanwhile, corporate organisations are gearing up for a technological leap of outstanding potential value that will transform human productivity.
If this gap exists
during the entire evolution (i.e., there is no level crossing between
the energy states of the system), the theorem dictates that in the
adiabatic limit (when \(T\rightarrow \infty)\) the system will remain
in its ground state. In practice, of course, \(T\) is always finite,
but the longer it is, the less likely it is that the system will
deviate from its ground state during the time evolution. Atom Computing says that it will begin allowing enterprise, academic and government users access to its quantum computer systems in 2024. Quantum computing has the potential to change the world, and IonQ is leading the way. Sign up for the Nature … Read More
