Pawsey installs first room-temperature on-premises quantum computer
Australia’s leading research supercomputing facility Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre has today announced the installation of the world’s first room-temperature diamond-based quantum computer located on-site in a supercomputing facility.
Developed by German-Australian start-up Quantum Brilliance, the rack-mounted diamond quantum “accelerator” leverages synthetic diamonds to run at room temperature in any environment.
The installation represents the first integration of quantum computing systems in a supercomputing centre, and will be used to demonstrate and test hybrid models of quantum and classical computing, by pairing the quantum accelerator with Setonix, Pawsey’s new state-of-the-art HPE Cray Ex supercomputer.
