What if you are told that there is a thermometer that can calculate temperature with quantum calculations and that too, accurately. You will be surprised to know that this is now possible because of researchers. This thermometer can measure variations in temperature and these variations cannot be measure with a normal thermometer. The era of invention is growing very rapidly and every day scientists are coming up with new possibilities for a better solution. The breakthrough provides a benchmarking tool for quantum computing with potential values and opens up great possibilities for inventions in the field of quantum thermodynamics. The field of quantum is vast and it has to develop at a very fast rate to bring innovations in our lives. This novel thermometer is one of them and it has been developed by researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

There are some key components of quantum computers and their functions are very unique and act as a major component because without them there are many difficulties that we need to follow. The name of these components is coaxial cables and waveguides. This is a very unique structure that guides waveform and acts as a vital connection between the quantum processor. The connection is very much necessary because it acts as a bridge so whatever communication needs to be done can happen over these bridges and the classical electronics which control it is also present over there.

To the quantum processor, microwave pulses travel along the waveguides and it tracks its path very consecutively and while traveling it also cools down to extremely low temperatures along the way. The filter process also takes place with the help of these thermometers. The waveguide also attenuates and filters the pulses, which helps to enable the extremely sensitive quantum computer to act accordingly so that it can work with a very stable quantum state. If the quantum state is not stable then there are chances of malfunctioning of the computer system. Also, these waveguides should not carry noise if you want this system to be in a controlled manner.
