Quantum Computing


Engineers from UNSW’s Centre for Quantum Computation & Communication Technology (CQC2T) have created a new quantum bit which remains in a stable superposition for 10 times longer than previously achieved, dramatically expanding the time during which calculations could be performed in a future


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.


For her pioneering research in quantum physics, UNSW's Michelle Simmons has been honoured with a €100,000 international L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award.


UNSW has struck a $70 million deal to create a consortium to develop and commercialise technology that could lead to the world’s first quantum computer in silicon.


UNSW has cemented its reputation as a leader in world-class research, receiving $91 million for three national centres of excellence in quantum computing, climate extremes and the ageing population.

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.
