Archer Materials (AXE) has successfully fabricated nanodevices to allow for the probing of quantum behaviour in its qubit material.

The company said this achievement was of “fundamental importance” to its 12CQ chip technology operation.

The nanodevice fabrication is the first step towards the readout of quantum states from few and single qubits used in Archer’s 12CQ technology.

Archer said it produced the nanodevices using state-of-the-art lithography and specialised software to obtain feature sizes compatible with a few to single qubits.

Importantly, the company claims this process is repeatable and reproducible at scale — meaning it can solve challenges related to complex nanodevice proximity effects and the on-chip integration of micron and nanometre size features.

Archer CEO Mohammad Choucair said the company’s 12CQ technology progress marked a “significant” ramp-up of development towards its goal of on-chip qubit control and readout.

“The nanodevices are intended to translate the quantum behaviour of the 12CQ qubit material for on-chip information processing and provide a potential pathway to mobile integration,” Dr Choucair said.

The company said in order to integrate the 12CQ chip into mobile platforms, it would need to develop complex lithography patterning methods to produce control and readout electronics compatible with scaling in a semiconductor foundry.

Shares in Archer Materials were down 3.94 per cent and trading at 61 cents at 11:58 am AEST.
