'World's purest silicon' could lead to 1st million-qubit quantum computing chips

07 May 2024: Scientists have developed an ultra-pure form of silicon, dubbed silicon-28 (Si-28), that could serve as the basis for “silicon-spin qubits” in quantum computers, according to a study published in Nature Communications Materials. Quantum bits or qubits, unlike classical computer bits, can exist in a superposition of states, potentially making quantum computers more powerful than today’s fastest supercomputers. However, qubits are highly susceptible to interference and require cooling to near absolute zero.

Chinese Scientists Report New Quantum Light Source is a Step Toward More Efficient Quantum Chips

22 Apr 2024: Researchers in China have developed a quantum light source using gallium nitride (GaN), a common semiconductor traditionally used in blue light-emitting diodes. This development is seen as a significant step towards creating functional quantum chips. The GaN-based quantum light source can generate pairs of entangled light particles, which are essential for transmitting information within quantum systems. Additionally, this device offers a broader wavelength range than existing quantum light sources. The researchers suggest that this advancement could lead to more efficient and easily integrated quantum chips, with vast potential applications in quantum computing.

PsiQuantum Likely Less Than Six Years Away From Commercial Quantum Computer

12 Apr 2024: PsiQuantum, a Palo Alto-based startup, anticipates delivering its first commercial quantum computing system in under six years, which is faster than many expert estimates. This accelerated timeline is due to research advancements and strategic partnerships, notably with chip manufacturer GlobalFoundries and the U.S. Department of Energy. The latter collaboration allows PsiQuantum to use facilities at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to design crucial cryogenic quantum modules. Valued at $3.15 billion with $700 million in funding, the company aims to assemble multiple quantum modules into a data center-like configuration, targeting around 1 million quantum bits (qubits) for practical applications.
