Welcome to the Digital Quantum Matter Laboratory
DQM Lab is a group headed by Dr. Matteo Mariantoni dedicated to researching and designing quantum information processing devices. The ultimate goal of the group will be to build a fully general quantum computer.
What is a quantum computer?
A quantum computer is a computational tool that utilizes the principles of quantum mechanics, namely superposition and entanglement to perform a special subset of problems much faster than conventional computers. Certain computational tasks, like factoring numbers, is inefficient on conventional computers. However, using algorithms designed to harness the properties of quantum superposition and entanglement, a quantum computer can accomplish certain tasks much better than what is done today.
