University of New South Wales Strikes Deal to Commercialise Quantum Computer Tech

University of New South Wales has struck a $70 million deal to create a consortium to develop and commercialise technology that could lead to the world's first quantum computer in silicon. The four-way agreement between UNSW, the researchers, business and the federal government will pave the way for the development of a prototype silicon quantum integrated circuit - the first step in building a functional quantum computer. The UNSW team is the only research group in the world that can make atomically precise devices in silicon. The scientists and engineers, within the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computing and Communication Technology (CQC2T) led by UNSW Scientia Professor Michelle Simmons, hope to have built a 10-qubit circuit within five years. Winning the global race to build a functional quantum computer will give Australia a significant competitive advantage, creating new growth and job opportunities.

Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Signs Agreement with Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales and University of New South Wales

Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has signed an agreement for a ballooning project with Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES). CSIRO is collaborating with CNES on an international research program known as PILOT, a balloon-borne astronomy experiment for the study of polarised emissions arising from interstellar dust grains. CNES conducted the first stratospheric flight of PILOT instruments in Canada in late 2015. It now intends to work with CSIRO to conduct a second flight in March/April 2017 using the CSIRO Ballooning Facility in Alice Springs, Australia. In addition to the agreement between CSIRO and CNES, CNES will also enter into an agreement directly with the University of New South Wales to provide it with the on the ground operational support it will need during the campaign.
