A Step Toward Revolutionary Computing by Improving Topological Material

HRL Laboratories, LLC, hopes to advance the vast potential of two-dimensional topological materials for quantum computation. With an award from DARPA, this project—Suppressing Trivial Edge Conductance in 2D Topological Materials—will take a step closer to development of topological qubits that keep fragile quantum information safe from environmental effects.

HRL Laboratories team publishes Quantum Computing Materials paper in MRS Bulletin

An HRL Laboratories, LLC, research team has published a paper in the March issue of MRS Bulletin, a journal of the Materials Research Society, that sits squarely at the intersection of materials science and quantum computing. The paper, “Metamorphic Materials for Quantum Computing,” explores the demands that silicon-germanium (SiGe) quantum dot heterostructures impose on the underlying substrate, the ways in which the metamorphic substrate’s properties impact device performance, and how performance limitations may be overcome.
