A team of engineers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has unveiled the design of a working chip that can integrate quantum interactions.
The team of researchers claims it is the first time all of the key components needed for quantum computing are made available in a single chip. Furthermore, the chip’s architecture includes error-correcting codes that rely on multiple qubits storing a single piece of data, which were designed specifically for spin qubits.
At this point it should be mentioned that we won’t see QC in the next year for the mass, this is only another small step. It will take years to stabilize the processor and the entire software needs to be re-written to get a benefit from it.
This will be the next big leap in technology if they finally make something that works outside of the lab. I’ll keep you guys updated on it!
