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.

Spin-orbit coupling of an electron in a lattice structure

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 new project to develop an unprecedented capability in quantum computing – a 'noise-cancelling headphone' for quantum computers – is set to increase the stability of fragile quantum building blocks, or qubits.

Professor Andrew Dzurak and team

After being the first team to create a two-qubit gate in silicon in 2015, UNSW Sydney engineers are breaking new ground again: they have measured the accuracy of silicon two-qubit operations for the first time – and their results confirm the promise of silicon for quantum computing.
