Depratment of Physics

Quantum computing, a new paradigm within computation, promises to solve problems that are intractable for current computers, such as efficient material and drug discovery. However, due to material and device complexity, current state-of-the-art quantum computers remain small, proof-of-principle devices with limited scalability. In my work, I investigate how quantum computers can be made from simple device architectures using materials, namely silicon, and techniques from today’s large-scale computer manufacturing industry. My recent results demonstrate that quantum information can be stored and read from these simple devices and, moreover, prove the existence of unexplored quantum states that may unlock further computational advantages.
