    Pawsey takes a quantum computing leap

    "The road to quantum computing has been a cold one -- just above
    absolute zero, in fact. That's the temperature at which most
    quantum computers must operate to function.

    In a pioneering milestone, the Pawsey Supercomputing Research
    Centre we operate in Perth is now home to the first
    room-temperature quantum computer in a supercomputing facility,
    anywhere in the world.

    Developed by German-Australian start-up Quantum Brilliance, the
    two-qubit diamond quantum 'accelerator' uses synthetic diamonds and
    runs at room temperature in any environment. Bits, in traditional
    computing, refer only to binary values (0s and 1s); a quantum bit,
    or qubit, is not either but both values simultaneously." ...
