When they heat up, quantum computers may slow down or stop working altogether.A new type of diamond made of specially designed diamonds cools when calculated
July 1, 2022
Quantum computers made of imperfect diamonds can stop themselves from overheating by running algorithms. Most quantum machines must be kept at low temperatures, but “algorithmic cooling” may allow quantum computers to perform well at room temperature in the future.
Conventional computers slow down as they warm up, and quantum computers can even stop working if they get too hot. While classical computers are usually cooled by fans, quantum computers often require a lot of…
