Quantum computer hopes to improve on the surface

There is a huge race to expand quantum computers for their enormous potential applications. Theory foretell that they can perform certain algorithms, such as factoring numbers or search algorithms, much faster than classical computers.

Quantum computers would not only transform informatics but would impact many areas of life, for example economics and communication, as well. Now a group of scientists at Fudan University led by Donglai Feng and Tong Zhang, in collaboration with the group of Zhongxian Zhao and Xiaoli Dong at the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, have made a great step towards quantum computers.
