Let’s get started! The following videos will construct a framework to lay out a vision for a quantum computer using our knowledge of classical technology. We will explain the various layers that a quantum computer will most likely consist of, starting at the basic building block: the qubit.
As DiVincenzo’s five criteria state, many more building blocks are needed to be able to operate the qubits. Did you know that the water molecules in your glass of water form quantum states that can be used to define qubits? This means that when you drink, you have billions of qubits in your hand!
However, a billion qubits alone do not make a quantum computer. To do something practical with these qubits, we need to be able to control and read them. All these qubits need to work in harmony according to your input. In this video, we will discuss the necessary components to go from many qubits towards a quantum computer.
What would happen if we try to make a quantum computer for higher temperatures? And what is the difference between a logical qubit and a physical qubit?
Now that you have a general idea of the quantum computer, dive into the part you find most interesting on one of these sections of the website!
