back to article Boffins cage qubits inside superconducting silicon

Boffins at the University of Maryland's Joint Quantum Institute think they're on the verge of creating qubits (quantum bits) that could be fabricated using technologies close to today's silicon techniques. The JQI group wants to create a blend of superconductor-style qubits and semiconductor qubits: superconducting wires and …

Direct Write lithography + superconductiivity

So slow throughput to make and a b**ger to operate at LH2 temperatures.

I see quantum computing happening real soon now.

"Joint Quantum Institute"

Would that be two entangled organisations?

Don't look at it else it'll collapse.
