Quantum computing is a long way to go before becoming truly public , but certainly did not stop to indulge in dreams of a qubit based existence . The last bit of fantasy fodder comes from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where researchers have become the first to combine a quantum processor with mechanisms of memory on a single chip. To do this, Mariantoni Matteo and his team of scientists associated with a two-qubit quantum bus and connected each to a memory element that can store their current values in the same way that the RAM stores data on computers classic. These links qubit sheet also contained pictures of resonators – jagged, yet easily controlled circuits that can store values for shorter periods. Qubits, meanwhile, were built using superconducting circuits, allowing the team to UCSB to nest their qubits even close, according to von Neumann architecture which governs most commercial computers. Once everything was in place, the researchers used their system to run complex algorithms and operations that could possibly be used to decode the encryption. The next step, of course, is to develop the design, although Mariantoni said that should not be a problem too, thanks to its system of resonators – which he said, are the future of quantum computing with integrated circuits .
