A Superconducting Quantum Processor Unit – A More Efficient Architecture for Quantum Computing

Technology Area
Computing
Description

Researchers at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley have broadened the scope of scientific problems that are solvable by a Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) quantum processor unit (QPU) by enhancing qubit connectivity in addition to gate fidelity.

This technology combines the controllability and integrability of superconducting quantum circuits with the flexibility of a programmable, all-to-all reconfigurable qubit connectivity graph in a large qubit-count processor. It establishes the power to accelerate the exploration and demonstration of useful NISQ-era quantum applications.
