Building the Quantum Computer
In the amazing world of quantum physics, DOE researchers and their partners are designing hardware for quantum computers that function by storing and using data on atoms and the subatomic particles inside of them. Major advances in this hardware development could ultimately accelerate the design of practical, full-scale quantum computers. Learn more about this hardware development in From “1 or 0” to “1 or 0 and Both”—Toward Real Quantum Computers, by Dr. William Watson, Physicist, OSTI staff.
