The work, published in Physical Review X, was part of a collaboration with researchers from the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore and the Singapore University of Technology and Design. The team propose that concealing which steps in a series perform the desired calculation would be akin to hiding a needle in a haystack.
