Erratum: Quantum Factorization of 143 on a DipolarCoupling Nuclear Magnetic Resonance System [Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 130501 (2012)]
Abstract
Quantum algorithms could be much faster than classical ones in solving the factoring problem. Adiabatic quantum computation for this is an alternative approach other than Shor's algorithm. Here we report an improved adiabatic factoring algorithm and its experimental realization to factor the number 143 on a liquid crystal NMR quantum processor with dipoledipole couplings. We believe this to be the largest number factored in quantumcomputation realizations, which shows the practical importance of adiabatic quantum algorithms.
