    Quantum Computer Design

    Engineers make critical advance in quantum computer design
    by University of New South Wales

    Quantum engineers from UNSW Sydney have removed a major obstacle that has stood in the way of quantum computers becoming a reality. They discovered a new technique they say will be capable of controlling millions of spin qubits—the basic units of information in a silicon quantum processor.
    Until now, quantum computer engineers and scientists have worked with a proof-of-concept model of quantum processors by demonstrating the control of only a handful of qubits.
    But with their latest research, published today in Science Advances, the team have found what they consider "the missing jigsaw piece" in the quantum computer architecture that should enable the control of the millions of qubits needed for extraordinarily complex calculations.

    Just a thought, but, why if crystals can store so much data, why are they are not utilizing them for this type of application

    Because they are talking about processors here, and we are a very long way away from the atomic level construction needed to make a crystalline processor. I imagine that is the end game, crystalline processors integrated with memory in a totally stable state using next to no energy.

    Physicists Create a Holographic Wormhole Using a Quantum Computer

    Physicists have purportedly created the first-ever wormhole, a kind of tunnel theorized in 1935 by Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen that leads from one place to another by passing into an extra dimension of space.

    The wormhole emerged like a hologram out of quantum bits of information, or “qubits,” stored in tiny superconducting circuits. By manipulating the qubits, the physicists then sent information through the wormhole, they reported today in the journal Nature.

    Alex Zlokapa, a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who joined the wormhole project as an undergrad, found a way to simplify the wormhole protocol enough to run it on Google’s quantum computer.
