Towards large-scale quantum computers with silicon quantum bits
The strength of quantum technology resides in the intrinsic parallelism of operations which, wisely used with specific algorithms, enables an exponential acceleration of computations, compared to current computers. Ultimately, quantum computing is likely to bring improvements within various areas, including:
There are four main ways to develop a quantum computer:
The consortium developed the world's first silicon qubit with CMOS technology. The next major step will be the demonstration of a semiconductor quantum chip co-integrated with control and read-out electronics both based on semiconductor industry-compatible technology.
