Quantum IC enables mass-manufacture of quantum technology.
The British Science Association (BSA) will unveil on Thursday ‘a new chip which enables mass manufacture of quantum technology,’ says the BSA.
The chip has been produced by an ‘international research collaboration led by scientists from the University of Bristol which has developed a new approach to quantum computing that could lead to the mass-manufacture of new quantum technologies,’ says the BSA,
The chip development is being announced as one of a number of technological breakthroughs being announced as part of the British Science Festival 2012 at a meeting chaired by Sir Roland Jackson on Thursday morning.
Quantum computing was the brainchild of Nobel Prize-winner Richard Feynman in 1982. Governments around the world have for many years invested in research to make quantum computing – and its promise of greatly increased processing capacity – a reality. None, so far as is known, has succeeded.
