Russia Using Superconductive Materials in Quantum Computing
(SciTechEuropa) Scientists from NUST MISIS successfully launched Russia’s first prototype of a quantum computer. Superconductive materials were taken as the basis for qubits.
The device working on two qubits performed a specific quantum algorithm, exceeding the previously known accuracy limit by 3%. Superconducting materials were taken as the basis for qubits.
Work on the creation of a quantum computer within the framework of Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects has been carried out at the NISU MISIS since 2016 under the supervision of Valery Ryazanov, the chief researcher of the University’s Laboratory for Superconducting Metamaterials. The design involves the use of superconducting materials as the basis for qubits.
