Fujitsu and Osaka University develop new quantum computing architecture

Fujitsu and the Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Biology (QIQB) at Osaka University have announced the development of a new, highly efficient analog rotary quantum computing architecture, representing a significant milestone towards achieving practical quantum computing.

The new architecture reduces the number of physical qubits required for quantum error correction — a prerequisite for fault-tolerant quantum computing — by 90%, from 1 million to 10,000 qubits. This breakthrough will enable research to move towards building a quantum computer with 10,000 physical qubits and 64 logical qubits, equivalent to computing performance approximately 100,000 times greater than the peak performance of conventional high-performance computers.
