Quantum computing gets a boost from a streamlined quantum error correction approach
Quantum coherence, or the superposition of quantum mechanical states typically lasting only a fraction of a second, enables the formation of two quantum waves that coherently interfere with each other. It is the basis of quantum computing, so scientists have developed quantum error correction techniques to protect quantum information from errors due to decoherence. Current solutions are highly resource-intensive and will create roadblocks to upscaling for next-generation applications and widespread use. The EU-funded SuperProtected project will develop a solution that could increase coherence time by a factor of 100 while significantly simplifying hardware requirements.
