Quantum Computer; Super-cooled & Lightning Fast

D-Wave Systems will demonstrate the world’s first commercial quantum computer next week, a supercooled, superconducting niobium chip housing an array of 16 qubits. D-Wave quantum computer, called “Orion,” solves the most difficult problems—called “NP-Complete”—in a just a few cycles, compared to the thousands of cycles needed by conventional computers. Orion is fabricated out of the superconducting metal niobium using conventional lithography. It was then supercooled to near absolute zero to permit its qubits to maintain their quantum state throughout a calculation. Initially, D-Wave will lease time on its quantum computer, which will be accessed over a secure Internet connection. Eventually, the company plans to sell quantum computer systems.
