Better together: Silicon qubits plus light add up to new quantum computing capability

6 monthes ago   |   By Electro IQ

A silicon-based quantum computing device could be closer than ever due to a new experimental device that demonstrates the potential to use light as a messenger to connect quantum bits of information - known as qubits - that are not immediately adjacent to each other. The feat is a step toward making quantum computing devices from silicon, the same material used in today's smartphones and computers.
In a step forward for quantum computing in silicon - the same material used in today's computers - researchers successfully coupled a single electron's spin, represented by the dot on the left...

Intel has just squeezed a ‘quantum computer' onto a silicon chip

6 monthes ago   |   By TechRadar

Intel's quest to produce a commercially viable quantum computer just took an impressive step forward with the revelation that it has developed a ‘spin qubit' chip based on traditional silicon, in conjunction with QuTech. In other words, this points to the possibility that quantum processors will be viable using silicon and existing commercial manufacturing methods, which is obviously good news when it comes to the implementation of next-gen computing. The spin qubit concept is an alternative approach Intel is exploring for realizing quantum computing - alongside superconducting qubits...
