Superconducting-silicon qubits: Using a bottom-up approach to make hybrid quantum devices

140702093612 large

Theorists propose a way to make superconducting quantum devices such as Josephson junctions and qubits, atom-by-atom, inside a silicon crystal. Such systems could combine the most promising aspects of silicon spin qubits with the flexibility of superconducting circuits.

(Phys.org) —In the growing area of flexible, transparent electronic devices, silicon has not played much of a role. Instead, materials such as indium tin oxide, carbon nanotubes, and others are often used to make bendable electronics. Continue reading “Researchers make flexible, transparent e-paper from silicon” »
