First ever blueprint unveiled to construct a large scale quantum computer
An international team, led by a group from the University of Sussex, has produced the first-ever industrial blueprint for a large-scale quantum computer that could lead to an entirely new and exciting technological revolution. That group was also involved in the FET project iQIT, which aimed at combining ion traps and superconducting qubits in one device using microwave photons.
