Archer First Australian Company Building a Quantum Chip to Join IBM Q Network
(ZDNet) Archer Materials is the first Australian company that develops a quantum computing processor and hardware to join the IBM Q Network. The IBM Q Network provides access to the company’s experts, developer tools, and cloud-based quantum systems through IBM Q Cloud.
“We are the first Australian company building a quantum chip to join into the global IBM Q Network as an ecosystem partner, a group of the very best organisations at the forefront of quantum computing.” Archer CEO Dr Mohammad Choucair said.
“Ultimately, we want Australian businesses and consumers to be one of the first beneficiaries of this exciting technology, and now that we are collaborating with IBM, it greatly increases our chances of success”.
Archer is advancing the commercial readiness of its 12CQ qubit processor chip technology towards a minimum viable product.
Archer is building chip prototypes at the Research and Prototype Foundry out of the University of Sydney’s AU$150 million Sydney Nanoscience Hub.
