Whereas current quantum devices hold tens of qubits the basic building block of quantum technology a future universal quantum computer capable of running any quantum algorithm will likely consist of millions to billions of qubits.

Key Points: 
  • Whereas current quantum devices hold tens of qubits the basic building block of quantum technology a future universal quantum computer capable of running any quantum algorithm will likely consist of millions to billions of qubits.
  • Quantum dot qubits hold the promise to be a scalable approach as they can be defined using standard semiconductor manufacturing techniques.
  • "But by putting the qubits in a two-by-two grid we now know how to control and couple qubits along different directions."
  • Any realistic architecture for integrating large numbers of qubits requires them to be interconnected along two dimensions.
