UNSW Scientia Professor Michelle Simmons has received a €100,000 international L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award at a ceremony in France, in recognition of her pioneering research in quantum physics.
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.

UNSW's Andrea Morello has been named inaugural recipient of the Rolf Landauer and Charles H. Bennett Award in Quantum Computing by the prestigious American Physical Society, the world's leading organisation of physicists.
Why is the quest for quantum computers so important? Michelle Simmons, UNSW Scientia Professor and Director of the Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Computer Technology (CQC2T) explains.
