The quantum bit (or qubits, by its English name), scientists are getting closer to achieving a quantumcomputer with applications in real life. The latest company to announce a new technological feat in this discipline has been IBM.
IBM today announced a 50-qubit quantum computer prototype, touching the historical record achieved a few weeks ago by a Harvard physicist, Mikhail Lukin. The new prototype of the quantum computer of IBM presents, in addition, a record time of coherence of 90 seconds. The computer is available for a minute and a half to perform very complex calculations and operations.
