Effective September 1, the CEA is coordinating the €15 million EU QLSI project. The goal is to lay the groundwork for the scaleup of tomorrow’s CMOS quantum computing technologies. An impressive nineteen stakeholders are engaged in this project. They include France’s CNRS, Bull, STMicroelectronics, and Soitec and European research organizations TUDelft and IMEC.
Other technologies—optics, superconductors, and trapped ions—have been used to demonstrate the concepts. While CMOS is far behind on a key parameter, fidelity, the technology does enable high integration densities and promising physical characteristics. QLSI will fabricate sixteen operational qubits to validate the feasibility and potential of CMOS for quantum.
