Building a Quantum Computer

At nanometer-length scales and at very low temperatures, the classical physics governing our everyday experiences breaks down and systems behave in strange and bizarre ways. The physics describing these systems is known as “Quantum Mechanics”. Across the globe, engineers are trying to harness quantum properties to make more powerful devices for computing and sensing applications. In this talk, we will discuss some of the strange properties that enable new technologies. We will then discuss one promising quantum computing platform being developed at the University of Pennsylvania – quantum processors based on nanoscale transistors in silicon.
