Quantum Computing


The unique Australian approach of creating quantum bits from precisely positioned individual atoms in silicon is reaping major rewards, with two of these atom qubits made to “talk” to each other for the first time.


The race is on to build the first reproducable two qubit gate in silicon - the building block for a scalable silicon-based quantum computer. UNSW Sydney-led scientists have shown for the first time that they can make two precisely placed phosphorous atom qubits “talk” to each other.


Australia is the best place for young people and researchers to pursue what they love and realise their dreams, UNSW scientist and 2018 Australian of the Year Michelle Simmons said in her award speech.


UNSW congratulates Scientia Professor Michelle Simmons, who was tonight named 2018 Australian of the Year in recognition of her pioneering research and inspiring leadership in quantum computing.


UNSW scientist Michelle Simmons is in the running to be named Australian of the Year this week for her pioneering physics research and inspiring leadership in quantum computing.


A reimagining of a modern computer chip by Australian engineers shows how a quantum computer can be manufactured – using mostly standard silicon components.


The way in which artists interpret quantum computing and experience new technology were the subjects of the latest Professorial Inaugural Lectures at UNSW.


UNSW scientists Michelle Simmons and Peter Macdonald are finalists for the NSW Australian of the Year Award.


UNSW engineers have invented a radical new architecture for quantum computing, based on novel ‘flip-flop qubits’, that promises to make the large-scale manufacture of quantum chips dramatically easier.


Australia’s first quantum computing company, Silicon Quantum Computing Pty Ltd, has been launched to advance the development and commercialisation of UNSW Sydney’s world-leading quantum computing technology.
