Google has started to create a 50-qubit quantum computer

Now more and more companies are trying their hand in the field of development of quantum computers. So Google decided to start the race and announced that company researchers have been developing quantum computing technology. Google already has a working sample shestikubitnogo quantum processor, but now experts are aimed at creating a computer with 50 qubits. The most powerful in the world at the moment.

At the head of the research team, which is responsible for development, should John Martinis, and they plan to set up its quantum device by the end of this year. In the case of Google's success will be the first who will be able to cross the so-called "barrier of a quantum of excellence." This barrier, followed by a performance of a quantum system during the execution of specialized tasks will be far beyond the capabilities of any existing supercomputers.

Already available from Google shestikubitny quantum chip became a testing ground for qubits manufacturing technologies, as well as the organization of relations between them. Development of technologies for the creation of computer took about two years. At the request of John Martinis,

"We still have to do a certain amount of work, in particular in the field of qubits location as they will be placed on chip scale quantum systems. But all the processes developed by us are working properly, and we are ready to commit a sharp qualitative leap. This jump will be the creation of systems with 30-50 qubits, work on which is already under way at the moment. "

Google Test chip

Now a research team consists of 25 people, and at the moment it carries out final checks of certain structural features of a future quantum computing system. For example, testing is carried out linear arrangement qubits chains of which will be collected and the two-dimensional matrix for the computer. It is said that if the search giant plans succeed, their processing will be a huge step towards the emergence of a real universal quantum computer.
