World purest silicon' could lead to 1st million-qubit quantum computing chips

08-May 2024

Scientists created a unique type of silicon that has very few flaws and is perfect for quantum computing.

"Silicon-spin qubits" that are very stable could be made with this purer silicon.

Million-qubit quantum computers are possible because these qubits could be made on a very small chip.

More error-free qubits come from silicon that is purer, which makes quantum computers more stable.

Million-qubit chips, which are about the size of a pinhead, could be made and would have a lot of strength.

This important discovery is a big step toward letting quantum computing reach its full potential.

This finding makes it possible to find new drugs faster, make progress in materials science, and more!
