    In a major breakthrough in quantum computing, scientists from Griffith University and the University of Queensland in Australia announced Monday that they had found a way to simplify a complicated logic operation by creating a quantum "Fredkin gate" for the first time ever. The development, detailed in the journal Science Advances, could bring fully functional quantum computers closer to reality.
    Fredkin (controlled- SWAP) gate is a gate where two qubits are swapped depending on the value of the third.
    Usually the Fredkin gate requires implementing a circuit of five logic operations. The research team used the quantum entanglement of photons—particles of light—to implement the controlled-SWAP operation directly.
