OPENSILICONQUANTUM

Silicon Semiconductor Quantum Computer Project

 

WHAT IS A QUANTUM COMPUTER?

A quantum computer is a new computer that is different in principle from the one we use today. It uses small particle called quantum, which combine the properties of both matter and waves. In this project, we will use electrons to fabricate a semiconductor quantum computer.

OPERATES AT RELATIVELY HIGH TEMPERATURES, SUCH AS 2K

Semiconductor quantum computers operate in the relatively high-pitched 2K (Kelvin) temperature range. This makes it possible to reduce the size of the refrigeration equipment needed to operate the quantum computer, making it easy to downsize for future mass production.

MASS PRODUCTION IS POSSIBLE USING EXISTING SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING FACILITIES.

Semiconductor quantum computers use the semiconductor manufacturing facilities of existing computers to produce quantum computers that use electrons. This allows us to use the most advanced processes for mass production and miniaturization technologies.

霜

CAN BE MINIATURIZED AND INTEGRATED

It is possible to miniaturize qubits using state-of-the-art processes. This method is ideal for the future production of many qubits in the millions.

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION OF SILICON QUANTUM DOTS

Calculations using the spin of the electron

In semiconductor quantum dots, calculations are performed using the spin of electrons. The computational principle of a quantum computer is to apply a magnetic field to electrons confined on a chip in three dimensions to create 01. The calculation is performed by applying a magnetic field to it.

 

WHAT TO DO WITH OPEN SILICON QUANTUM

Toward miniaturization and mass production of quantum computers

The most important aspect of developing quantum computer hardware is the supply chain. The manufacturing of a quantum computer is a combination of many technologies. Open Silicon Quantum is working with the supply chain to shape a highly feasible semiconductor quantum computer.

DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF SEMICONDUCTOR QUANTUM DOT CHIPS

The heart of a semiconductor quantum computer is a chip called a semiconductor quantum dot. Electrons are confined and manipulated in three dimensions on the semiconductor chip. Quantum computers adopt a different principle from conventional computers, and use a calculation method that utilizes the spin of electrons. We will develop such a chip in collaboration with national research institutes.

DEVELOPMENT OF COMPACT REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT

In order to operate a semiconductor quantum computer, cryogenic temperatures are required, and it is necessary to develop a cryocooler that can operate stably at cryogenic temperatures such as 2K. In addition, to realize quantum computers for home and business use, we need to downsize refrigeration equipment, and we are working with major companies to develop high-performance, compact refrigeration equipment.

DEVELOPMENT OF LOW-TEMPERATURE CMOS CHIPS

Controlling a quantum computer and reading out the results of calculations is a difficult task. The current development of quantum computers is based on the use of large measuring instruments and control machines, but in the near future these will need to be integrated into a single chip inside a refrigerator. We need to develop CMOS chips in low-temperature environments to reduce the number of wires and take a big step toward mass production.

EXPERIENCE IN QUANTUM COMPUTER DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT

Track record of achieving advanced technology

In 2018, blueqat succeeded in developing its own (then MDR Corporation) superconducting qubit, and has since received orders from AIST for the design and development of chips for quantum computers. We have also been adopted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Japan Patent Office (JPO) for the IPAS program, and have many hardware patents. Based on our past achievements, we are working on the development of a new type of quantum computer in collaboration with many companies and national laboratories.

 

THE FUTURE OF SMALL SEMICONDUCTOR QUANTUM COMPUTERS

A Step Toward Mass Production

MINIATURIZATION FOR RAPID SPREAD

Until now, quantum computers have been like experimental facilities with a room full of equipment, but from 2021 onwards, the production of small desktop or server rack quantum computers will be in full swing around the world. Among them, we chose semiconductors. The combination of a small refrigerator and a low-temperature CMOS chip will make it possible to realize a small quantum computer and bring more quantum computers to homes and businesses.

FULL-STACK QUANTUM COMPUTERS

A quantum computer cannot be used without software, middleware, and hardware, and blueqat has developed a lot of software and middleware so far. The realization of miniature quantum computers will make quantum computers available to everyone.

MAKING AI MORE ACCESSIBLE

With current computers, it has become difficult to make advanced use of AI due to power consumption and cost issues. The future of quantum computers is expected to be a new type of computer that can process large amounts of data and consume low power, making it ideal for the data society of the future.
