the quantum fredkin gate

Researchers from Griffith University and the University of Queensland have overcome one of the key challenges to quantum computing. They demonstrated this by experimentally realising a challenging circuit — the quantum Fredkin gate — for the first time.

The quantum Fredkin gate can also be used to perform a direct comparison of two sets of qubits (quantum bits) to determine whether they are the same or not.

The scheme is that it is not limited to just controlling whether qubits are swapped, but can be applied to a variety of different operation.

A whole new view of the Universe became accessible to humanity when classical rules that governed electricity, magnetism and light didn’t necessarily apply to the smallest, subatomic scales. There are 10 essentials of quantum mechanics that will give us pause on how we “picture” the Universe. Everything is quantum. Everything obeys the same laws of […]
