Quantum Computing Concepts – Quantum Hardware


  Last updated August 16, 2017 at 3:20 pm


The hardware required to build and operate a quantum computer is quite different from that of everyday’s machines. Depending on the specific implementation, it can consist of powerful magnets, ultra-low temperature refrigerators, high-frequency generators and nanometre-scale transistors and electrodes.

In this episode of Quantum Computing Concepts, Professor Andrea Morello of UNSW Australia introduces the basic hardware components of a quantum computer, and shows how they differ or resemble existing pieces of hardware.
