“Quantum freeze” rescues world’s fastest computers

Quantum Computers have a fatal flaw which has until now made it impossible to build really fast quantum computers. They make so many operations that very rare and tiny errors occur rapidly and are amplified, making them unable to function properly. The Institute of Physics and New Journal of Physics today publishes a paper which describes a phenomenon which could eliminate the majority of these errors and allow these computers to operate at incredible speeds successfully.
