Hot Qubits: major quantum computing constraints overcome

Hot Qubits: major quantum computing constraints overcome

Most quantum computers being developed around the world will only work at fractions of a degree above absolute zero. That requires multi-million-dollar refrigeration and as soon as you plug them into conventional electronic circuits they’ll instantly overheat. But now a team led by Andrew Dzurak at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has shown they can operate silicon qubits at temperatures 15 times hotter than most qubits, creating a path from experimental models to affordable computers for real world business and government applications.

    So what about just putting these qubits into orbit, where the temp would be naturally closer to absolute zero, on a permanent basis, then plug an orbital supercomputer that takes data from it, then send the data down to Earth? Why waste so much energy and resources artificially when you can make it run in far better natural conditions?

    Australia is rocking the quantum scene

    Note to self: Silicon is hot!
