UNSW researchers have won medals from the Australian Institute of Physics, including for excellence in research.
The internationally renowned UNSW Scientia Professor is recognised for creating the field of atomic electronics.
A decades-old problem about how to reliably control millions of qubits in a silicon quantum computer chip has now been solved.
Quantum computers, making greenhouse gases useful, COVID-19 infection from droplet spread and water security were some of the most popular engineering stories in 2020.
Australian researchers have found the ideal position for qubits in silicon - a development that will help them to scale up atom-based quantum computers.
A team led by 2018 Australian of the Year Professor Michelle Simmons has taken another important step forward in the development of a silicon quantum computer.
A team led by UNSW scientists have significantly increased the coherence time of a spin-orbit qubit in silicon, allowing them to preserve quantum information for longer. These results open up a new pathway to scale silicon quantum computers.
A proof-of-concept published today in Nature promises warmer, cheaper and more robust quantum computing. And it can be manufactured using conventional silicon chip foundries.
A mishap during an experiment led UNSW quantum computing researchers to crack a mystery that had stood since 1961.
In a breakthrough for quantum computing, researchers at UNSW Sydney have made improved qubits using concepts from high school chemistry.
