IMEC leverages Si platform toward quantum computing - Electronics EETimes (registration)

Quantum computing, still largely a theoretical academic pursuit, makes use of quantum mechanical phenomena such as superposition and entanglement of states within atoms to perform certain types of calculation not possible or practical on classical computers. While there have been many attempts to build qubits, the basic computational building block of a quantum computer, those that could be made in silicon would have the advantage of easier integration with conventional silicon devices and the outside world. IMEC said it plans to establish a bridge between the most advanced transistor technology and emerging quantum technology options as a natural extension of its silicon platform. This will be open to universities, small companies and industrial partners of its quantum technology collaborative research programs. "IMEC's industry relevant silicon platform for the advanced ...
