(Slashgear) IBM has made a breakthrough in quantum computing by demonstrating a way to control the quantum behavior of individual atoms. The discovery has demonstrated a new building block for quantum computation. The team demonstrated the use of single atoms as qubits for quantum information processing.
A quantum bit or qubits are the fundamental blocks of a quantum computer’s ability to process information. IBM’s breakthrough marks the first time a single-atom qubit has been achieved using a Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM). The STM can image and position each atomic qubit to precisely control the arrangement of the nearby qubit atoms.
