Researchers at Stanford University and Ireland's University College Dublin built analog quantum simulators that could solve the most significant puzzles in physics.
The simulators, formed from hybrid metal-semiconductors on a nanoelectronic circuit, are measured in microns rather than in meters.
Stanford's David Goldhaber-Gordon said the analog devices establish a "hardware analogy" to solve quantum physics problems.
The researchers tested the simulator using a simple circuit paired with two quantum elements, tuning electrical voltages to generate Z3 parafermions on electronic devices for the first time.
They hope to scale up the quantum simulator to solve more complex quantum computing problems.
