Engineering new bits for quantum computers

Chicago and Argonne researchers simulate quantum bits for easier engineering of quantum computers.

Using supercomputers, University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory scientists have predicted possible new qubits – the quantum analogue to classical computing’s 0 and 1 bit arrangement – built out of strained aluminum nitride. The team showed that certain newly developed qubits in silicon carbide have unusually long lifetimes.
