Exploring the Role of Solid-State Semiconductors in Advancing Quantum Information Science
By Terence West | EnergyPortal.eu

Solid-state semiconductors are emerging as a pivotal player in the rapidly evolving field of quantum information science. Quantum information science, a multidisciplinary field, leverages the principles of quantum mechanics to process and transmit information. The unique properties of quantum systems, such as superposition and entanglement, allow quantum computers to perform complex calculations at speeds far surpassing those of classical computers. However, the practical implementation of quantum information science has been hindered by several challenges, including the need for extremely low temperatures and the difficulty of maintaining quantum states. This is where solid-state semiconductors come into play.
