A team at the University of Science and Technology of China packed three qubits into each of six particles to pull off the unprecedented feat.
Scientists have just packed 18 qubits — the most basic units of quantum computing — into just six weirdly connected photons. That’s an unprecedented three qubits per photon, and a record for the number of qubits linked to one another via quantum entanglement.
So why is this exciting?[…]
