Researchers Unveil Design of Silicon Quantum Computer Chip

Researchers worldwide have been trying for long to come up with a working computing chip that can combine quantum interactions. Finally, a group of engineers have reached a breakthrough solution in the field with a new chip design.

Throwing light on how it works in the publication Nature Communications, researchers discuss the unique architecture which enables carrying out of quantum calculations leveraging existing semiconductor components called CMOS, acronym for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor.

The device has been designed by Dr. Menno Veldhorst, a research fellow at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) when the conceptual work was done and Andrew Dzurak, who is director of UNSW.

New Chip Builds Pathway for Copious Amount of Qubits

As per the lead researchers, building a microprocessor chip with numerous operating devices integrated to it and which can be carried in your pocket is a tremendous achievement. Their new chip, in a first, creates a conceivable engineering pathway for building millions of quantum bits, also known as qubits.

They go on to elaborate that by saying that computer chips these days do not have the capacity to tap into the quantum effects required to tackle the crucial challenges that quantum computers can. In order to sort issues that help deal with crucial global challenges such as deadly maladies or climate change, millions of qubits working in sync would be required. To achieve that, what is needed is packing qubits together to integrate them, in the same manner it is done with modern microprocessor chips. That is exactly what the new design hopes to accomplish.

Salt to Emerge as Most Valued Seasoning Spice, Globally

San Francisco, California, December 19, 2017: TMR Research has recently announced the publication of a market study on the global seasonings and spices market. The report, titled “Seasonings and Spices Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017–2025”, states that this market is witnessing substantial rise across the world.

The report signifies the historical production volumes of the seasonings and spices market in the global arena and analyzes the global seasonings and spices market on the basis of products available in this market and its regional distribution. Salt and salt substitute, spices, herbs, and pepper are the key products available in the global market for seasonings and spices. The markets for pepper and salt and salt substitutes jointly led the global market with the majority share. In addition to this, the salt and salt substitutes market is anticipated to take the lead by the end of the period of the forecast, states the research report.

The report also offers a geographical analysis of the worldwide market for seasoning and spices. North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World are the major regional markets for seasoning and spices across the world. Among these, Europe and Asia Pacific have acquired the leading position in the global market, followed closely by North America. Asia Pacific is witnessing a prominent shift in food habits on account of the increasing disposable income and the growing western influence. Nowadays, consumers in this region are more interested in French and Italian cuisine, which is the prime reason for the growth of the seasonings and spices market in the Asia Pacific region.

Although this regional market is likely to remain on the top over the next few years, the economic instability coupled with incompetent logistics in Asian nations has restricted this regional market to post a steady growth. Furthermore, various government policies in favor of domestic demands are projected to limit the export volume of seasonings and spices, resulting in plummeted growth of Asia Pacific seasonings and spices market, notes the research study.

The market study also analyzes the company profiles of the major players operating in the global seasonings and spices market in order to present the competitive landscape and the market hierarchy. According to it, this worldwide market is extremely fragmented and is led by McCormick. Everest Spices, Unilever, and Nestle are some other prominent participants in this market, states the report.

The prime objective of this research study is to assist stakeholders in the global market for seasoning and spices in creating efficient counter strategies and enhancing their decision-making abilities to gain a competitive edge over their peers.
