the quantum computing challenge...

The question isn't why do we want one …

 it is how do we build one…

There are many ways imagined to construct a quantum computer. But which way is best? Each proposal comes with its own limitations and drawbacks. But, here at Wake Forest University we are pursuing a slightly different approach that seems to have a little promise.

 

We use the topological properties of geometrically complicated structures created here in our synthesis labs, to fabricate stable Qubits. These are integrated into substrates which help to mediate entanglement through gated material arrays thereby allowing for a dynamically reprogrammable architecture in a quantum computing framework.

 

This is the core behind PAULI - our attempt at realizing such a processing scheme.

QCWG is a collection of faculty, postdocs, students and scientists with an interest in quantum computing that has come together specifically for the design, fabrication and web implementation of the PAULI Chip. Some of this group is here at the WFU campus and some are off-site collaborators. However, the hardware for PAULI is being constructed using the cleanroom facilities at the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials at Wake. When we are done, our goal is to allow general, off-campus users to interface with PAULI through a wake-designed web portal and QISKIT programming environment.
