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


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.


Engineers from UNSW’s Centre for Quantum Computation & Communication Technology (CQC2T) have created a new quantum bit which remains in a stable superposition for 10 times longer than previously achieved, dramatically expanding the time during which calculations could be performed in a future


​Physics World, the magazine of the UK’s Institute of Physics, has named an advance in quantum computing by engineers at UNSW among its global “Top Ten Breakthroughs of 2015”.
