EurekAlert: A new technique prevents errors in quantum computers

EurekAlert: A new technique prevents errors in quantum computers. “Even quantum computers make mistakes. Their computing ability is extraordinary; indeed, it exceeds that of classical computers by far. This is because circuits in quantum computers are based on qubits that can represent not only 0s or 1s, but also superpositions of 0 and 1 states by using the principles of quantum mechanics. Despite their great potential, qubits are extremely fragile and prone to errors due to the interactions with the external environment.”
