The odds that a futuristic quantum computer will be built of silicon have received a boost, thanks to new technology recently invented by researchers in the Centre for Quantum Computer Technology (CQCT).
They’ve made a silicon chip that can control and observe individual electrons and they are now using this chip to make quantum test chips.
The potential speed and power of a quantum computer is known to far exceed even the biggest supercomputers of today. What is still unclear though is the best method to build one.
