Surrey University gets £3m grant for quantum computing.

Surrey University gets £3m grant for quantum computing.

The grant from Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) aims to to provide the answer to the challenge of enabling solid state quantum technologies, leading to quantum computers. Quantum computers rely on the production and control of 'qubits'. These qubits are often single, isolated atoms placed within another highly pure material such as single phosphorus atoms in a silicon crystal, or single nitrogen atoms in a diamond (carbon) crystal. They can be connected together to act as miniscule super-processors of unprecedented flexibility. However, these processors built from many qubits connected together are extremely difficult to construct. “We’ve named this new project ‘SIMPLE’ (Single Ion Multispecies Positioning at Low Energy) but this challenge is anything but simple! Enabling a viable quantum computer is one of the most difficult challenges faced by p...
