Magnetic Shields Limited invents compact cryogenic magnetic shield for quantum computing

Magnetic Shields Ltd - TribePost Recruitment Limited

Magnetic Shields Limited (MSL), in collaboration with the University of Nottingham and SEEQC, has developed a new magnetic shielding system designed for cryogenic conditions, marking a significant advancement in quantum computing and satellite technology. Utilizing thin metal coils integrated into the shielding, this innovative system actively cancels out magnetic interference at temperatures near absolute zero, thus eliminating the need for traditional bulky metal housings. Particularly beneficial for quantum computing, the shield extends the life and efficiency of qubits, which are highly sensitive to external disturbances and are essential for calculations within quantum platforms. Additionally, this lightweight and small-scale solution has profound implications for satellites by significantly reducing the launch costs associated with the heavy metal layers currently needed to protect against space’s harsh magnetic fields. MSL’s invention promises enhanced performance and efficiency across multiple technologies, acting similarly to noise-canceling headphones by measuring and neutralizing disturbances electronically.
