Intel Collaborated with QuTech to Develop 2-Qubit Silicon Quantum Chip
QuTech, Dutch quantum computer research company announced collaboration with Intel on February 21, 2018 to reveal first-ever programmable two-qubit quantum processor on silicon chips
Through this partnership, the companies will be offering breakthrough in large and extensive calculations. The qubits can be controlled by electronic signals. Silicon is used due to its property of causing less disruption. According to a blog post by QuTech, scientists performed the Deutsch-Josza algorithm on the new two-qubit quantum chip, which helps to determine odd or even function of device. The Grover-Search algorithm was also performed curates the right answer in one go from an unsorted set of options.
“In order to be able to execute more complex algorithms, we will develop silicon quantum chips with more qubits, both in the Delft cleanrooms and in industrial cleanrooms with our partner Intel,” said Lieven Vandersypen, Professor at QuTech. However, although it’s not the end product, it has applications in creating chips that can carry out scalable quantum calculations. Furthermore concept relies on two qubits, while a large combination is required to solving more complex and extensive calculations.
Furthermore, major market players are competing to develop chips with similar features. Microsoft had announced plans to develop quantum computing ecosystem in near future in September 2017.
