A University of Sydney team has solved a common problem in quantum sensing devices, which are used in biomedical imaging and have defence applications. Industrial sensors are everywhere in our technology and in order to function successfully they must be able to identify tiny signals from a cluttered background. For most humans this is simple. … Continue reading Quantum trick blocks background ‘chatter’ in sensors
A team at the University of Sydney and Microsoft, in collaboration with Stanford University in the US, has miniaturised a component that is essential for the scale-up of quantum computing. The work constitutes the first practical application of a new phase of matter, first discovered in 2006, the so-called topological insulators. Beyond the familiar phases … Continue reading Key component for quantum computing invented
A research initiative is setting Sweden on course to a global top position in quantum technology. The focus is on developing a quantum computer with much greater computing power than the best supercomputers of today. The initiative is headed up by Professor Per Delsing at Chalmers University of Technology. The progress of research in quantum … Continue reading Engineering of a quantum computer set to start
Engineers at Australia’s University of New South Wales (UNSW) have invented what they term as a “radical” new architecture for quantum computing, based on “flip-flop qubits”, that promises to make the large-scale manufacture of quantum chips dramatically cheaper – and easier – than thought possible. The new chip design, detailed in the journal Nature Communications, … Continue reading “Radical” new quantum computing design invented at UNSW
The University of Sydney has announced the signing of a multi-year quantum computing partnership with Microsoft, creating an unrivalled setting and foundation for quantum research in Sydney and Australia. The long-term Microsoft investment will bring state of the art equipment, allow the recruitment of new staff, help build the nation’s scientific and engineering talent, and … Continue reading USYD and Microsoft sign global quantum computing partnership
IBM has announced an initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computing systems.
An international team, led by a scientist from the University of Sussex, have unveiled the first practical blueprint for how to build a quantum computer.
Valued at US$15 million, D-Wave’s 2000Q quantum computer will be used with TDS technology to solve some of the most critical and complex cyber security problems impacting governments and commercial enterprises.
Sydney physicists have demonstrated it is possible to overcome one of the most significant hurdles to building reliable quantum technologies, in a major technical achievement.
The world’s most precise clock has been fine-tuned to boost radar and quantum computing capabilities.
Australia has entered the bid for quantum encrypted communications with a new cloning method that surpasses previous cloning limits, and can be realised using existing fibre optic infrastructure.
Two UNSW professors have won global awards for their contribution to quantum computing, a field which is becoming increasingly important for industry.
A group of physicists from the University of Calgary in Canada have set a new record for distance of transferring a quantum state by teleportation, which is an important step towards achieving quantum communications.
The diamond microdisk made by Paul Barclay and his team of physicists could lead to huge advances in computing, telecommunications, and other fields.
