Dark Matter will be detected With Quantum Computers

At present, all technologies cannot directly find dark matter, but American scientists have recently found a new method to detect dark matter using quantum computers.

Attempt to detect single photons produced by dark matter in a strong magnetic field in Qbits.

In classical systems, a bit that is either 0 or 1 at a time (only 1 state exists) enables the computer to perform certain functions and tasks.

But a Q bit (qubit, or qubit) can be both 1 and 0 at the same time (2 states at the same time) until they are read, an effect called quantum superposition.

It is also a unique characteristic of quantum computer computing, enabling the latter to efficiently perform complex calculations that would take a lot of time to complete on a conventional computer.

The vast majority of qubits require extremely low temperatures to reduce noise interference in the environment, and even the slightest disturbance can cause program interruption in a quantum computer.

Aaron Chou, a scientist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, suddenly realized that both quantum computers and dark matter detectors need strict protection.

If people are building quantum computers, why can’t they be considered another class of dark matter detectors?

In other words, quantum computers could provide a way to detect dark matter.

Photons, which may be produced when dark matter particles pass through strong magnetic fields, can be measured by the researchers using superconducting qubits inside an aluminum photonic cavity.

Since qubits are immune to external interference, when scientists detect photons that are disturbed (like you didn’t add a message, but the message somehow appeared), they can infer that it might be the result of dark matter flying by.

Aaron Chou’s group’s method enables multiple measurements of the same photon, ensuring that interference is not a fluke. The team also plans to develop dark matter detection experiments and improve device designs, starting with turning devices containing photons of a single frequency into radio receivers,

By changing the size of the photon cavity, it is possible to perceive photons of different wavelengths produced by dark matter.

Furthermore, researchers are also developing photonic cavities made of different materials, such as sapphire cavities.
