Quantum computers a step closer to reality [Registered]

Quantum computers should be much easier to build than previously thought, because they can still work with a large number of faulty or even missing components, according to a study published online in Physical Review Letters on 9 November ‘10. This surprising discovery brings scientists one step closer to designing and building real-life quantum computing systems – devices that could have enormous potential across a wide range of fields, from drug design, electronics, and even code-breaking. Scientists have long been fascinated with building computers that work at a quantum level – so small that the parts are made of just…
