Intel Tests Smallest Spin Qubit Chip for Quantum Computing

Look at the pencil bellow, wait for it – yes there it is! Intel researchers are taking new steps toward quantum computers by testing a tiny new “spin qubit” chip, smaller than a pencil’s eraser, it is the tiniest quantum computing chip Intel has made. A 2018 photo shows Intel’s new quantum computing chip balanced on a pencil eraser. Researchers started testing this “spin qubit chip” at the extremely low temperatures necessary for quantum computing. Intel projects that qubit-based quantum computers, which operate based on the behaviors of single electrons, could someday be more powerful… Read moreIntel Tests Smallest Spin Qubit Chip for Quantum Computing
