Synopsis

In principle, quantum computers that exploit the nature of quantum physics-archive can solve some problems much more efficiently than classical computers can.  Motivated by the tremendous scalability of classical silicon electronics, we are working to build a large-scale quantum computer using silicon technology similar to that used to build current classical computers.  This talk will discuss the fundamental physics-archive challenges that arise, the progress that we have made, and prospects for further development.
