  • Quantum safe cryptography – waiting to save the world
    Future quantum computers will one day bring us many great benefits. Unfortunately they will also break many of the cryptographic protocols on which current Internet security depends. Google’s quantum supremacy breakthrough notwithstanding, this is still most likely many years off. However, sensitive data intercepted and stored today, or long lifecycle ... read more

  • Quantum supremacy – a new era?
    Google has achieved quantum supremacy – the ability to perform a calculation beyond the reach of conventional computers. This is a landmark scientific, mathematical and technical achievement. Though the road to general purpose quantum computing remains a long one, early applications will surprise many. Google had planned to announce quantum ... read more

  • Quantum error correction – from geek to superhero
    Quantum computers can only realise their full potential by defeating the noise that plagues their delicate qubits. The field of quantum error correction offers some increasingly mature solutions. But it is also still a rapidly evolving field, and innovation here, as much as in hardware, will shape the future quantum ... read more

Project Description

Jeremy O'Brien is CEO of PsiQuantum, Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering at Stanford and Bristol, and director of the Centre for Quantum Photonics. PsiQuantum is using a photonic approach to manufacture a universal quantum computer in a CMOS silicon fab. Jeremy has spent 20 years working towards scalable QC, including: micro-, nano- and atomic- scale design, fabrication and operation of superconducting and semiconductor devices (inc. GaAs quantum dots, P:Si QC, diamond spin qubits); design, construction and operation of cryogenic (mK–300 K) and UHV systems; design, construction and application of dc–GHz low-noise electrical measurement to organic-, super- and semi-conductor (nano)structures (B=0–1000 T); and theory of QC.
