Silicon Chip Quantum Computing That Has Practical Cooling Costs

Australia developing warmer, cheaper and more robust quantum computing with qubits that need thousands of dollars of refrigeration instead of millions of dollars. Most current quantum computers need multi-million-dollar refrigeration and as soon as you plug them into conventional electronic circuits they’ll instantly overheat. Professor Andrew Dzurak and his team at UNSW Sydney have a …

Very Fast Quantum Calculations with Germanium Transistors

The researchers at QuTech, a collaboration of TU Delft and TNO, have built two germanium transistors that can be the building blocks for fast quantum computing. Before this work it was not possible to perform quantum calculations using only transistors. Other elements were needed and this provided a limitation for upscaling. This work shows a …
