Precise atom implants in silicon provide a first step toward practical quantum computers

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics


Sandia National Laboratories has taken a first step toward creating a practical quantum computer, able to handle huge numbers of computations instantaneously.

Here’s the recipe:

A “donor” atom propelled by an is inserted very precisely in microseconds into an industry-standard silicon substrate.
