Quantum Computing

San Francisco

Atlassian’s Scott Farquhar and quantum computing leader Michelle Simmons will be among speakers at the inaugural showcase of UNSW's entrepreneurs and innovators in San Francisco this week.


Australian quantum researchers have been able to identify the exact location of a single atom in a silicon crystal – an important development for building a silicon-based quantum computer.


Researchers from the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T) have solved a key challenge in the drive towards building a silicon-based quantum computer – one which could lead to more precise quantum logic operations.

Quantum art

Inspired by UNSW’s ground-breaking research, Steven Durbach's paintings, animations, and other artworks express the beauty of the ideas at the heart of quantum physics.

Atlassian's Scott Farquhar and quantum computing powerhouse Michelle Simmons are among the leading innovators and entrepreneurs heading to San Francisco in June for UNSW’s inaugural Alumni Entrepreneurs and Innovation Summit. 


If we had a large-scale quantum computer, what would we do with it? We are only scratching the surface of what quantum computers can do.


UNSW Associate Professor Paul Thomas takes quantum computing and turns it into art. Here he speaks about "Quantum Consciousness", which is based on the work being done by Professor Andrea Morello at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Computer Technology at UNSW.


​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”.


CBA’s $10 million pledge to support UNSW's quantum computing research sends a powerful message about industry collaboration on world-leading Australian innovation, and builds on major government investment announced this week.


UNSW Australia welcomes the federal government’s announcement today of a $26 million investment in the University’s world-leading quantum computing research.
