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 has based its research on silicon because of its size, reliability, speed and operating temperature. So far, it is the only group of researchers that has demonstrated quantum operations in an electron spin system, trapped in a quantum circuit, leveraging standard microelectronics. Each member of the consortium brings the necessary skills and expertise for the development of a quantum computer:
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
