UNSW Professor Michelle Simmons will deliver this year’s Australia Day address in New South Wales, the first female scientist to be given the honour.


UNSW engineers have created a new quantum bit that remains in a stable superposition for 10 times longer than previously achieved, dramatically expanding the number of calculations that could be performed in a future silicon quantum computer.

Australian researchers have figured out a way to deal with errors in quantum computers, giving them the essential architecture that may help this team become the first to build a functioning quantum computer in silicon.


Researchers at UNSW and the University of Melbourne have designed a 3D silicon chip architecture based on single atom quantum bits, providing a blueprint to build a large-scale quantum computer.

A dramatic increase in the amount of time that data can be stored on a single atom means silicon could once again play a vital role in the development of super-fast computers, write Andrea Morello and Andrew Dzurak.
