Quantum engineers from UNSW Sydney have removed a major obstacle that has stood in the way of quantum computers becoming a reality: they discovered a new technique they say will be capable of controlling millions of spin qubits – the basic units of information in a silicon quantum processor.

Published today in Science Advances, the team led by Dr Jarryd Pla, and Scientia Professor Andrew Dzurak have found what they consider ‘the missing jigsaw piece’ in the quantum computer architecture that should enable the control of
the millions of qubits needed for extraordinarily complex calculations.
