London, Sep 30 (ANI): In what could be called as a big leap in quantum mechanics, a research team at Yale have achieved the entanglement of three solid-state qubits, or quantum bits, for the first time.

Their accomplishment is a first step towards quantum error correction, a crucial aspect of future quantum computing.

"Entanglement between three objects has been demonstrated before with photons and charged particles. But this is the first three-qubit, solid-state device that looks and feels like a conventional microprocessor," Nature quoted Steven Girvin, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics and Applied Physics at Yale and an author of the paper, as saying.

If this sticks, it's a huge milestone. And when/if we ever get mass-market quantum computers, the internet will look as quaint as a mimeograph machine. We live in exciting times.
