Archer’s 12CQ Project is a result of Australian-led scientific research into quantum technology.

This project began in April 2019 and aims to build a carbon-based qubit processor (chip) capable of room-temperature operation and facile device integration.

The chip would form the future basis of a universal quantum computer, a new technological evolution.

Sold out information session

Archer's quantum technology strategy is generating strong interest as evidenced by the sell-out of an information session in Sydney next Wednesday.

The session, Understanding Quantum Technology at Tank Stream Labs in Bridge Street, will outline how the company is developing a strong presence in this space.

Archer CEO Dr Mohammad Choucair and manager of Quantum Technology Dr Martin Fuechsle will provide attendees with an insight into the current and future progress in quantum technology development.
