UK Report Suggests Synthetic Diamonds Could Contribute to Developing Quantum Computing

The search for a more powerful and efficient computer system has led researchers to quantum computing, a field with unprecedented processing capabilities. In fact, recent research by the Department for Science Innovation and Technology (DSIT) in the United Kingdom announced that synthetic diamonds could play a significant role in developing quantum computing and communications technologies. This could lead to higher levels of performance and stability.

The UK has been at the front line in developing quantum computers, but other countries are also making major moves in the industry and building infrastructure. The report proves that the UK risks being left behind if the government doesn’t consider investing in the venture. According to the DSIT reports, synthetic diamonds are created under controlled conditions with the addition of specific defects that make them ideal materials in the development of quantum computing.

With various companies such as Google Quantum AI pushing the boundaries of capabilities for quantum computing, it’s clear that governments must prioritize the production of synthetic diamonds. In this way, they can harness the unique properties of these diamonds for quantum applications.

But what exactly is so unique about synthetic diamonds in relation to quantum computing? To understand more about this, you first need to know what quantum computing is. Unlike traditional computers that use bits of data existing as 0 or 1, quantum computers utilize quantum bits, also known as qubits. Quantum bits have the ability to exist in multiple states at the same time, making quantum computers ideal for processing large amounts of data and even handling complex calculations.

Synthetic diamonds are manmade diamonds possessing remarkable properties that are useful for the development of quantum computing.

The UK report recommends investing in a new flagship facility to help support the development of quantum technology across various stages, including prototyping and packaging design, etc. Additionally, the UK government should improve the existing open-access infrastructure for the development of quantum technology.

In fact, the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge are pioneering this research by looking for ways to harness all the essential properties necessary for quantum information processing. One of the notable advancements in the area is the development of diamond-based quantum sensors. These have been crucial in the improvement of the precision of quantum computations.

The report suggests that the government and other relevant stakeholders can try to derisk the process of technological development to make quantum technology more accessible to mid-size businesses and academic institutions, thus ensuring adoption and commercialization.

For companies such as D-Wave Quantum Inc. (NYSE: QBTS), the focus on providing the hardware and systems needed to bring quantum computing to businesses and industries and the task of making quantum computing accessible to academic and mid-sized enterprises is a challenge they are already working to bring to reality.
