Quantum Breakthrough: Researchers Successfully Simulated a 45-Qubit Quantum Circuit
The two students, Thomas Häner and Damien Steiger performed the computations at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). This DOE Office of Science User Facility exists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. As it stands, researchers have been studying quantum computing for decades. It all began when Paul Benioff first applied quantum theory to computers in 1981.
