Scientists have discovered a new superconducting qubit called the unimon

Researchers from Aalto University, IQM Quantum Computers, and VTT Technical Research Centre have discovered a new superconducting qubit called the unimon. The unimon is supposed to accelerate the accuracy of quantum computers and allow a faster commercialisation of quantum computers.

The current qubit design used does not provide the needed performance capacity for practical applications. The unimon, in comparison, unites in a single circuit the desired properties of increased anharmonicity and other factors such as reduced sensitivity to magnetic noise.
