Pioneering quantum computing researcher Andrew Dzurak speaks in Ramsey – Monday, June 17

Andrew Dzurak

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the world’s leading expert on silicon-based quantum computing technology talk at Fermilab. Come hear Andrew Dzurak give his talk, titled “Silicon-based Quantum Computing: The Path from Laboratory to Industrial Manufacture,” on Monday, June 17, at 3:45 p.m. in Ramsey Auditorium. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Fermilab quantum program or want to learn about the maturity of the current technology, which could revolutionize the $470 billion global semiconductor industry, be sure to attend.

Dzurak is trailblazing the field to enable the scaling of laboratory-based basic science research to an industrial-scale, superpowerful quantum computer in a commercial system for CMOS manufacturing. In his groundbreaking work, he has demonstrated silicon-based qubits using both electron and nuclear spins. He will discuss the development of SiMOS quantum dot qubits, including the demonstration of single-electron occupancy, and high-fidelity one-qubit and two-qubit logic gates. He will also explore the technical issues related to scaling a silicon-CMOS-based quantum processor up to the millions of qubits that will be required for fault-tolerant quantum computing, including the crucial role of cryogenic control electronics.

Dzurak is a Scientia professor in nanoelectronics at the University of New South Wales. He is the director of ANFF-NSW the Australian National Fabrication Facility and a center executive member of ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology. He is also the director of Qucor Pty Ltd.

This talk is sponsored by the International Workshop on Cryogenic Electronics for Quantum Systems.

Edoardo Charbon is a professor of the Advanced Quantum Architecture Lab at EPFL and workshop chair. Farah Fahim is a Fermilab engineer and workshop co-chair.
