Supersized atoms can convert the output of quantum computers into light signals that can travel through optical fibres. This could be crucial for connecting quantum computers into a network.

Multiple quantum computers networked together may be able to handle more complex computations than just one computer. However, while conventional computer networks use optical fibres for fast and accurate connections, many quantum computers output their results as signals that can’t travel through fibres. Consequently, quantum computers have been linked to …
