The quantum computer
For more than 20 years we have been talking about quantum computers. Expectations have been high for the next generation of computers and many have seen the quantum computer as a natural extension of the development of computer capacity described in Moore's Law with a doubling every 18 months since sometime in the 1960s.
But even though the quantum computer sounds like a promising technology, there is still a long way to go before the quantum computer is on your desktop. Science Journalist Jens Degett talks about obstacles and possible breakthroughs with Professor Karsten Flensberg from the Center for Quantum Devices at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen.
