  • Quantum Hardware Outlook 2020
    2019 saw Google finally demonstrate quantum supremacy. Competitors such as IBM reminded us that this was just an opening skirmish in what will be a long campaign. In 2020 we will see paths divide as competing companies and technologies face-up to the quantum chasm blocking the way to large scale ... read more

  • Brexit and the Quantum Landscape
    The arrival of Boris Johnson in Downing Street makes a hard Brexit ending more likely. To understand the impact this will have on the science and innovation landscape and quantum technology in particular, we have to look beyond the immediate disruptions and understand how the thinking of the political right ... read more

Project Description

Silicon Quantum Computing Pty. Ltd. (SQC) is working to create and commercialise a quantum computer based on world leading intellectual property acquired from the Australian Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T).
We have set ourselves a bold ambition: to develop a 10-qubit quantum integrated circuit prototype in silicon by 2022.
SQC currently has parallel platforms for creating a silicon-based quantum computer using atomically engineered phosphorus donors, quantum dots using CMOS technology and hybrids.
Drawing on decades of success, the Centre, led by Laureate Fellow Professor Michelle Simmons, has produced the longest coherence time, highest fidelity qubits in the solid state, the ability to optically address single dopant atoms in silicon, the lowest noise silicon devices and the first two qubit gate in silicon.
SQC is owned by the Australian Government, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), Telstra, the University of NSW (UNSW) and the NSW State Government.
