A protocol for controlling quantum information pioneered by researchers at UC Santa Barbara, the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience in Delft, the Netherlands, and the Ames Laboratory at Iowa State University could open the door to larger-scale, more accurate quantum computations. Their findings, in a paper titled “Decoherence-protected quantum gates for a hybrid solid-state spin register,” are published in the current issue of the journal Nature.

UC Santa Barbara’s Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) has expanded computing resources for campus researchers with a new, state-of-the-art, high-performance, $1 million computing cluster.

The new Hewlett-Packard cluster has the computing power of 12 TeraFLOPS, or 12 trillion floating point operations per second. It will fulfill the need for calculations and simulations that are too large for desktop computers or workstations, but below those normally run at the handful of national supercomputing centers.
