Project Q

Crucial hurdle overcome in quantum computing


Tagged: ,

A team of Australian engineers have built a quantum logic gate in silicon for the first time, making calculations between two quits of information possible – and thereby clearing a major hurdle to making silicon quantum computers a reality.

The Project Q team spoke to team leader Andrew Dzurak, Scientia Professor and Director of the Australian National Fabrication Facility at the University of New South Wales, as well as Dr. Menno Veldhorst, a UNSW Research Fellow, on their ground breaking achievement, and what it means for the world of quantum computing.
