Australian’s Can Actually See Their Qubits
The University of New South Wales is keeping the world abreast of its quantum computing research excellence. Storing information using a single phosphorus electron, its quantum spin, is what researchers have accomplished — creating a quantum bit. This accomplishment, coupled with their success in delivering the lowest noise in a semiconductor and further success with extending the lifespan of electron-spin qubits up to 30 seconds, has positioned this group to “see” where the qubits are in their silicon chip among other per-cursors to a quantum computer which conducts complex calculations. The article discusses this and other aspects to the UNSW quantum computing efforts.
