Quantum Computing @ MIT: The Past, Present, and Future of the Second Revolution in Computing

  title={Quantum Computing @ MIT: The Past, Present, and Future of the Second Revolution in Computing},
  author={F. Vasconcelos},
  journal={arXiv: Popular Physics},
This article provides an overview of the history, theoretical basis, and different implementations of quantum computers. In Fall 2018, four MIT faculty -- Isaac Chuang, Dirk Englund, Aram Harrow, and William Oliver -- at the forefront of quantum computation and information research were interviewed. They provided personal perspectives on the development of the field, as well as insight to its near-term trajectory. There has been a lot of recent media hype surrounding quantum computation, so in…

Investigating Hammock Networks on IBM Q

If and how much hammock networks might help in the quantum realm is tested using simulations on Open image in new window (unfortunately still gate-level constrained), and the preliminary findings are reported in this paper.



Bulk Spin-Resonance Quantum Computation

A new approach to quantum computing is introduced based on the use of multiple-pulse resonance techniques to manipulate the small deviation from equilibrium of the density matrix of a macroscopic ensemble so that it appears to be the density Matrix of a much lower dimensional pure state.


I provide an introduction to quantum computers, describing how they might be realized using language accessible to a solid state physicist. A listing of the minimal requirements for creating a

Superconducting Circuits for Quantum Information: An Outlook

For the first time, physicists will have to master quantum error correction to design and operate complex active systems that are dissipative in nature, yet remain coherent indefinitely.

This special issue of Mathematical Structures in Computer Science contains several contributions related to the modern field of Quantum Information and Quantum Computing. The first two papers deal

Experimental Implementation of Fast Quantum Searching

This provides the first complete experimental demonstration of loading an initial state into a quantum computer, performing a computation requiring fewer steps than on a classical computer, and then reading out the final state.

Quantum computation with quantum dots

We propose an implementation of a universal set of one- and two-quantum-bit gates for quantum computation using the spin states of coupled single-electron quantum dots. Desired operations are

Quantum Computing

By harnessing such natural behavior (of qubits), quantum computing can run new, complex algorithms to process information more holistically and may one day lead to revolutionary breakthroughs in materials and drug discovery, the optimization of complex manmade systems, and artificial intelligence.

Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor

Quantum supremacy is demonstrated using a programmable superconducting processor known as Sycamore, taking approximately 200 seconds to sample one instance of a quantum circuit a million times, which would take a state-of-the-art supercomputer around ten thousand years to compute.

The computer as a physical system: A microscopic quantum mechanical Hamiltonian model of computers as represented by Turing machines

In this paper a microscopic quantum mechanical model of computers as represented by Turing machines is constructed. It is shown that for each numberN and Turing machineQ there exists a HamiltonianHNQ
