The first supercomputer generated models of Archer’s qubit material


In this edition of Archer’s Newsletter we highlight the Company’s recent publication with EPFL, following a significant amount of research and discovery to validate the uniqueness of the 12CQ qubit material.

Last year we set out with the goal of simulating 12CQ qubit material models to the greatest extent possible. But these sorts of models are massive from a computing perspective, requiring the use of supercomputers to calculate how the thousands of atoms arrange and their corresponding quantum properties.

In November 2022, we reported that powerful supercomputer simulations performed with EPFL had provided the most accurate understanding of Archer’s unique 12CQ qubit material to date. 

The supercomputer analysis, how we did it, and the detailed scientific results of the work are available online, having undergone the peer-review process and published in the journal Carbon.

Archer has already begun using the breakthrough simulations to support the design and development of complex quantum electronic devices required for the future operation of the 12CQ chip.

Hundreds of quantum electronic devices and qubit materials have been prepared for testing, measurement, integration, and optimisation towards qubit control and readout.

Archer continues to collaborate with researchers at EPFL, and I look forward to sharing more on our technological progress.
