Archer Materials (AXE) has made progress in developing its ¹²CQ quantum computing processor chips.

Semiconductor devices, commonly referred to as ‘chips’, are an essential component of almost all technology applications. The company has been developing a world-first quantum computing chip and working on securing the related intellectual property in global markets. 

According to Archer Materials’ latest technical progress update, the company is applying advanced semiconductor device modelling to build sophisticated quantum bit, or ‘qubit’, control electronic devices with ¹²CQ chip qubits. 

The ability to detect and manipulate quantum information in miniaturised chip devices is essential to the operation of ¹²CQ chips. In particular, controlling qubits in Archer Materials’ ¹²CQ chip necessitates the design of new, incredibly complex quantum information control electronics to integrate with the ¹²CQ chip qubits. 

The company has now gotten to the point in its development process where these complex designs are being developed from first principles, modelled using specialised software, built and tested in one end-to-end process.

The development process has advanced to the use of electromagnetic finite element modelling, to build the qubit control devices. This sophisticated kind of modelling allows the company to achieve qubit control of few and even single qubits.

This level of control is a key milestone in validating the viability of Archer Materials’ ¹²CQ chips.

Archer Materials’ CEO, Dr Mohammad Choucair, commented on the company’s ongoing process to develop its ¹²CQ chips. 

“We are progressing with our ¹²CQ chip development by iterating new qubit control device designs and upgrading existing [control] prototypes to integrate with ¹²CQ chip qubits,” he said.

“Advanced device modelling is required to do this work, especially as we have the opportunity to account for qubit scalability early on, which is a key advantage over other qubit proposals,” he added.

Archer Materials will continue building new and complex qubit control architectures onto a chip to integrate with the ¹²CQ chip qubits at its $150 million research and prototype foundry in Sydney. 

Archer Materials is up 3.95 per cent, trading at 79 cents per share at 1:22 pm AEST.
