Scalable Quantum Information Processing Breakthrough

The group led by Prof. PAN Jianwei and his colleagues, CHEN Yuao and LU Chaoyang, has managed to entangle eight photons in the so-called Schrödinger's cat state for the very first time, breaking the previous six-photon world record set up by the same group in 2007. 

PAN Jianwei and his colleagues, working together with scientists in Australia and Canada, then successfully demonstrated a topological quantum error correction code for the first time. This marked a significant breakthrough in scalable fault-tolerant quantum computing.

Results were published in Nature Photonics and Nature
