Quantum Butterfly (1 of 2) (image) Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore Share Print E-Mail Caption The computational processing power of quantum bits (qubits) is poised to have profound impacts on diverse fields of science and engineering. Using 9 superconducting qubits, researchers at Google and the University of California Santa Barbara, the National University of Singapore and Technical University of Crete, were able to simulate the intricate energy spectrum predicted for 2-D electrons in a magnetic field, the Hofstadter butterfly. This graphic is based on experimental data.
