IBM Q Dilution Refrigerator. Reducing the cost of the qubit may come with reduced need for such novel devices as this cooling unit. (Photo taken at 2018 ASCE. [Credit: Graham Carlow])…Project Goldeneye pushes the limits of low-temperature refrigeration while laying the groundwork for the quantum industry’s ability to scale to larger experiments…

…The super-fridge — internally known as project Goldeneye — is a proof-of-concept for a dilution refrigerator, capable of cooling future generations of quantum experiments…

…Goldeneye is a testament to the fact that a small team of people armed with passion and dedication can move a seven-ton “mountain” of steel and electronics…

…We hope that its innovative design, with an eye toward ease-of-use, will inspire the next generation of vacuum and low temperature refrigeration technologies…
