Flip-Flop Qubit Could Make Silicon the King of Quantum Computing

Flip-Flop Qubit Could Make Silicon the King of Quantum Computing

Headline-grabbing quantum computing efforts by Google and IBM have mostly focused on building quantum bits, called qubits, out of loops of superconducting materials. But a recent breakthrough could enable a different technology based on spin-based silicon qubits to eventually dominate the rise of quantum computers. The theoretical advantage of quantum computing rests upon qubits representing multiple states simultaneously, whereas classical computing bits can only represent information as either a 1 or 0. Toward that end, Australian and U.S. researchers have developed qubits based on either the nuclear or electron spin state of phosphorus atoms embedded in silicon. Their latest work has yielded the concept of a “flip-flop qubit” that combines both electron and nuclear spin states—an approach that enables neighboring qubits to remain coupled together despite being separated...
