Last year, researchers here at Quantinuum, a quantum computing startup, used a chip with eight ytterbium ions to compute the precise arrangement of a hydrogen molecule’s two electrons in their most stable state, out of myriad possible configurations. In and of itself, that computational feat is barely worth noting; a typical laptop can manage it in seconds. But it marked the first demonstration of…
