Near Brighton Beach, in Sussex, there is lab working on revolutionzing the world of computing. The team there are working on building a massive Quantum Computer which could herald massive new insights and abilities to compute.
The Sussex team, led by Professor Winfried Hensinger at the University of Sussex, have made a major development towards combatting one of the biggest problems facing quantum computing. They found a way to reduce the noise which destroys the computation. Sussex’s Ion Quantum Technology Group have managed to reduce the effects of “noise” affecting a type of trapped ion quantum computer. There are many types ranging from topological (as Championed by Microsoft) and superconducting (by IBM). This development could lead to the widespread adoption of massive qubit arrays of trapped ion Quantum Computers.
