Expertise Innovation Institute (TII), the devoted ‘utilized analysis’ pillar of Abu Dhabi’s newly established Superior Expertise Analysis Council (ATRC), in the present day introduced that its Quantum Analysis Centre (QRC) workforce led by its Chief Researcher Professor José Ignacio Latorre, will assemble the quantum pc within the UAE capital, in collaboration with Barcelona-based Qilimanjaro Quantum Tech researchers.
“We’re on the cusp of a brand new period with the arrival of quantum computing,” H.E. Faisal Al Bannai, Secretary Normal of ATRC, stated. “We’re proud to embark on constructing one among these fantastic machines which can assist us in numerous fields, from discovering new medicines to creating new supplies to designing higher batteries to numerous Synthetic Intelligence purposes.”
A quantum pc makes use of quantum mechanics phenomena similar to ‘superposition’ and ‘entanglement’ to generate and manipulate subatomic particles like electrons or photons – quantum bits often known as ‘qubits’ – to create exponentially stronger processing powers that may assist carry out complicated calculations that might take for much longer to unravel even by the world’s strongest classical supercomputers.
Prof. Latorre defined that preparatory work has already begun. “Step one within the course of is to construct a laboratory, equip it and full set up of the cleanroom tools, all of which is on observe. As soon as performed, the primary qubits can be ready, characterised and benchmarked. We anticipate the primary easy quantum chips ‘Made in Abu Dhabi’ ought to come by the top of the summer time,” he stated.
Prof. Latorre stated there are a number of applied sciences to assemble quantum computer systems similar to superconducting qubits, ion traps, optical qubits, and spin dots, including QRC has opted to make use of superconducting qubits, which is identical expertise that Google and IBM use in constructing their very own quantum computer systems, they usually provide the perfect qubit expertise to scale to a bigger quantum pc.
QRC is one among seven devoted analysis centres at Expertise Innovation Institute (TII).
