Yale will lead a new project to simulate the dynamics of complex chemical reactions using quantum computing technology.
The new Center for Quantum Dynamics on Modular Quantum Devices, led by Victor Batista, the John Randolph Huffman Professor of Chemistry, is Yale’s first project for quantum...
One of the most basic processes in all of nature—a subatomic particle’s transition between discrete energy states—is surprisingly complex and sometimes predictable, recent work shows

Yale physicists have developed an error-correcting cat—a new device that combines the Schrödinger’s cat concept of superposition (a physical system existing in two states at once) with the ability to fix some of the trickiest errors in a quantum computation.
It is Yale’s latest breakthrough in the...
