A Univ. of New South Wales (UNSW)-led research team has encoded quantum information in silicon using simple electrical pulses for the first time, bringing the construction of affordable large-scale quantum computers one step closer to reality.

Lead researcher, UNSW Assoc. Prof. Andrea Morello from the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications, said his team had successfully realized a new control method for future quantum computers.
