Deepfreezing Electronics to Unlock Industrial Potential of Quantum Computing

Deepfreeze electronics for supercomputers–technology prepares quantum computing for industrial use

Quantum computers are extremely energy-efficient supercomputers. Researchers are working hard to perfect the electronics that process calculations in these machines. This will allow them to reach their full potential for new applications such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. Fraunhofer IZM researchers are developing superconducting connections with a thickness of just ten micrometers. This will bring the industry a step closer to commercially viable quantum computing.

Quantum computers are expected to be the catalyst for innovation in modern technology. They do not use bits like the computers we have today. Instead, they work with qubits. These units of information are no longer limited to binary states.

Qubits are a huge leap forward when quantum superposition and entanglement are added. They can now handle more complex calculations and have greater speed. There is one simple rule that still applies: more qubits equals more speed and computing power.
