Topological qubits: Anyons
Anyons are essential ingredients if you want to use topological qubits for quantum computing. But what are anyons? And how can we perform coherent operations on these types of qubits? Find out in the video below!
In the video Atilla shows that because the ground states cannot gain energy from their environment, they are protected against noise or thermal fluctuations. However, there is a limit to that protection. When do you think this protection does not hold anymore?
