Phonon Based Room Temperature Quantum Computer

Case ID:

This 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.


In quantum computing, 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. This technology represents a new undertaking to develop a quantum computer.
