Quantum computing is incredibly complex, and if not properly harnessed, a scientist could find himself trapped in time, jumping from body to body. That's what I learned from Quantum Leap, a late 1980s and early 1990s TV show, anywa. Maybe that part about being trapped in time is fiction, but quantum computing is pretty intense, and as such it requires extreme cooling. Therein lies part of the challenge. Researchers from the physics department at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) may have cracked the cooling code, however, to reaching a near absolute zero temperature on a permanent basis. Developed as part of a startup called "kiutra GmbH," the team says it succeeded in implementing a permanent... Read more...
