Error Correction Technique Could Enable Quantum Computing

In a diamond crystal, three carbon atom nuclei (shown in blue) surround an empty spot called a nitrogen vacancy center, which behaves much like a single electron (shown in red). The carbon nuclei act as quantum bits, or qubits, and it turns out the primary source of noise that disturbs them comes from the jittery "electron" in the middle. By understanding the single source of that noise, it becomes easier to compensate for it, providing a key step toward quantum computing. Credit: MIT
