Researchers map electrons to move one step closer to better quantum computers

Quantum electronics researcher and co-author, University of Melbourne’s Dr Muhammad Usman, said qubits are the fundamental building blocks of a large-scale quantum computer. “We need these robust interactions to engineer a multi-qubit processor and, ultimately, a useful quantum computer.” The research, published today in Nature Communications, showed precision placement has proven to be essential for developing robust interactions – or coupling – between qubits. Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology Deputy Director and research co-author, University of Melbourne’s Professor Lloyd Hollenberg, said quantum computing is an emerging paradigm with potential to offer tremendous computing power in the future. CQC2T Australian researchers have determined the ‘sweet spot’ for positioning qubits to achieve high-accuracy quantum computers. We have now located the optimal position to create reproducible, strong and fast interactions between the qubits.”
