Abstract: Quantum computing is expected to extend the high performance computing roadmap when it is able to operate a large number of qubits. Si-based QC appears as a promising approach; thanks to the size of the qubits, the quality of the quantum gates and the VLSI ability to fabricate billions of closely identical objects. We have created a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional team which gathers quantum physicists and microelectronics engineers. We are aiming at delivering prototypes and at identifying the key scientific roadblocks for scaling up. In this presentation, we will describe the basis and the different challenges related to this effort.
Biography: Dr. Tristan Meunier is a senior CNRS researcher working at Institut Néel, University Grenoble Alpes, France. He leads the quantum spin qubit Grenoble effort at CNRS. Dr Meunier’s research interests are mainly in the field of coherent control of individual quantum objects, both in atomic physics and solid-state systems. Since 2005, he has participated in the world-wide effort on the coherent control of individual electron spins in semiconductors. He received the Starting and Synergy Grants of the European Research Council (ERC) on the coherent control of individual electron spins in semiconductor nanostructures, in 2012 and 2018, respectively (with M. Vinet and S. DeFrancheschi).
