A new piece of hardware is able to both write and read quantum information, a first in the field
New device reads and writes quantum information - technology science news latest

Quantum computers technology just got a boost with the development of a new silicon-based device capable of reading and writing quantum information, two essential functions for error correction in computers.

It is the first time these two operations were achieved simultaneously on the same device. The team of scientists used existing technologies combined in an ingenious way to allow the design of a novel device.

The hardware was produced using conventional semiconductor manufacturing technology and the researchers will try to scale it up in order to create a silicon-based quantum-computer chip.
