How to build a quantum computer

An innovative new website mapping the research milestones towards a scalable quantum computer was launched by Professor Michelle Simmons at the UNSW Alumni Entrepreneurs and Innovation Summit in San Francisco on June 23. The website,, looks at the key concepts of quantum computing, explains the major research outcomes achieved by CQC2T to date and introduces the leading researchers at the University of New South Wales and the University of Melbourne. The website will be ideal for anyone—from school students to tech-savvy adults—wanting to know more about quantum computing.

Check out the Quantum Timeline website now.

World-first approach to help design more accurate quantum computing architecture

In work published this week in Nature Nanotechnology, researchers from the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T) have been able to identify the exact location of a single atom in a silicon crystal—an important technique for building a silicon-based quantum computer and one which will help design more accurate quantum logic operations.
