Setting Traps For Quantum Computing

There have been some real advances in quantum computing, but the effects aren’t scalable to a useful degree. At least not yet – a team of physicists have constructed a new form of ‘ion trap’ using conventional microfabrication techniques. It traps all the ions in a single layer, making the geometry of the hardware much more like the silicon we’re used to, and hence easier to potentially engineer useful machines from.

  1. Try a hyperfractal—no clocks, no transistors to prevent a pair-to-pair serial/parallel, electron/photon, quantum-to-quantum binary recursive interaction. Never try to use a 64-bit Pentium chip to analyze a 100,000,000-qubit computer.
