Title: Quantum-Analogue Computer


Invention: The invention includes arrays of elastically coupled ambient temperature elastic wave qubit analogues, which are stable and decoherence free, offering a new solution for quantum computing using materials-based and phonon-based quantum analogues.


Background: In short, quantum computing means the bits can either be a one, a zero, or both. Current quantum bit platforms are based on quantum particles that lose their superposition of states in a noisy environment. The technology presented here represents a new undertaking to develop a quantum computer.
