Quantum computer processor based on Silicon tested?

A group of engineers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has published a research paper detailing the keys to the development of a quantum processor based on silicon.

Quantum computer processor based on Silicon tested?

This means that this quantum processor could be used in a computer capable of handling qubits even though it would be based on existing processes and materials, specifically in silicon as we anticipated at the beginning of the article.

In their study the experts talk about a chip that could handle “millions of qubits,” and in theory, it is a design that is “ready in the absence of some small modifications,” which means that when these small changes are introduced, it could enter the phase of production.

It’s not the first time we’ve talked about quantum processors or the possibilities offered by quantum computing versus traditional bit-based computing, but we’ve always moved in quite conservative numbers, in fact, Intel recently introduced a 17-qubit solution, as well that to speak of “millions of qubits” almost sounds like science fiction.

Doctors Andrew Dzurak and Menno Veldhorst, authors of the study that describes how to use current silicon technology to shape processors capable of controlling and reading millions of qubits, have generated great expectations but we must remember that at the moment it has not had application in The real world.

From what I have been able to understand the idea that they pose is closer to an “emulated” quantum computing than a pure quantum computing, but the truth is that it is promising since, in theory, it would allow precise operations thanks to the use of support tools, such as the integration of error correction code.
