Quantum computers come closer to reality

Quantum computers closer to reality following molecular magnets breakthrough – Ground-breaking research ledTrinity College Dublin by Professor of Condensed Matter Theory, Stefano Sanvito, Director of the CRANN Institute at Trinity and Investigator in the Science Foundation Ireland-funded centre AMBER, has demonstrated how molecular magnets could be used successfully in applications such as hard-disk drives and quantum computers. The breakthrough could increase a computer hard-disk’s capacity by 1000 using tiny molecules.

How this might work has stymied international researchers for over 30 years, due to the challenge of molecular magnets operating at room temperature. This discovery could one day revolutionise computation as we know it, enabling lengthy and complex calculations, such as database searches, to be performed at incredibly high speeds.
