1924 The term quantum mechanics is first used in a paper by Max Born. 1925 1905 Albert Einstein explains the photoelectric effect-shining light on certain materials can function to release electrons from the material-and suggests that light itself consists of individual quantum particles or photons. Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, and Pascual Jordan formulate matrix mechanics, the first conceptually autonomous and logically consistent formulation of quantum mechanics. 1925 to 1927 Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg develop the Copenhagen interpretation, one of the earliest interpretations of quantum mechanics and one that is still commonly taught. 1935 Milestones in the history of quantum computing 2014 Physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands teleport information between two quantum bits 2019 Google claims to have reached " quantum supremacy " by performing a series of operations in 200 seconds that would take a supercomputer about 10,000 years to complete. IBM responds by suggesting it could take 2.5 days instead of 10,000 years, highlighting techniques a supercomputer may use to maximize computing speed. 10 2018 separated by about 10 feet with zero percent error rate.
