How A Fault-Tolerant Quantum Memory Could Be Realized Using Near-Term Quantum Processors With Small Qubit Overhead

A technical paper titled “High-threshold and low-overhead fault-tolerant quantum memory” was published by researchers at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center and MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab. Abstract: "Quantum error correction becomes a practical possibility only if the physical error rate is below a threshold value that depends on a particular quantum code, syndrome measurement circuit, and a decod... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Nov. 9

Integrated transistor cooling Researchers at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) created a single chip that combines a transistor and microfluidic cooling system for more efficient transistor heat management. The team focused on a co-design approach for the electrical and mechanical aspects of the chip, bringing the electronics and cooling design together and aiming to extract... » read more
