Submission + - IBM Physicists Report New Breakthrough for Quantum Computing (

markmark57 writes: In the past seven weeks, IBM physicists using superconducting technology at temperatures around absolute zero have achieved computing at a coherent state, physicist Mark Ketchen said.
The experiment lasted for only a ten-thousandth of a second, the IBM researcher said. The attempt to achieve a quantum state was stable, or coherent, enough to suggest that if repeated and made to last longer, a working quantum computer could be made.
