Superconducting Carbon Nanotubes composite as Vertical Interconnect for Qubit Integration at Cryogenic Temperature (QCNT)

Themes: Micro/Nano System Integration and Reliability

Quantum computer technology as a new research field, focused on developing devices using the fundamentals of quantum physics theory to overcome the scalable limit of the conventional silicon-based computers. Efficiently integrating many qubits is a key to achieve the quantum computer scalability. Vertical superconductor interconnects that carry the quantum information through the silicon wafer is of vital importance, which should be reliable, fine-pitch, and high aspect ratio. In this project, the potential of vertically aligned CNT-bundle coated with superconductor materials to fulfil requirements in quantum computers is investigated.
