Intel has announced the release of its new quantum research chip, Tunnel Falls, a 12-qubit silicon chip, and is making it available to the quantum research community. The company collaborates with the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS) at the University of Maryland, College Park’s Qubit Collaboratory (LQC) to advance quantum computing research. Tunnel Falls is Intel’s most advanced silicon spin qubit chip to date and is part of the company’s long-term strategy to build a full-stack commercial quantum computing system. The chip measures approximately 50 nanometers square, potentially allowing for faster scaling. Intel is also working on its next-generation quantum chip based on Tunnel Falls, expected to be released in 2024.
