Breakthrough extends quantum state stability by 10,000 times
  • Researchers found a way to ‘trick’ quantum systems into thinking that there’s no noise, enabling a huge increase in the stability of these systems.
  • The biggest block to quantum research is that currently quantum systems operate for extremely brief periods of time.
  • Testing the new technology showed that it can keep a system working for 22 milliseconds, which is 4 orders of magnitude greater than without it.
  • This might open up many new avenues of research, and can make it possible for scientists to study quantum systems they were previously unable to.
