Quantum Processors: Making Machines at the Atomic-Limit image
Synopsis:

The Bakerian Medal and Lecture 2022 given by Professor Michelle Simmons FRS.
 
Sixty years ago, the great American physicist Richard Feynman delivered a famous lecture in which he urged experimentalists to push for the creation of new materials with features designed at the atomic limit. He called this the "final question": whether ultimately "we can arrange the atoms the way we want: the very atoms all the way down!"
 
Professor Simmons will describe how scientists are now finally delivering on Feynman’s dream. She will explain how to manufacture materials and devices whose properties are determined by the placement of individual atoms, and will highlight the creative explosion in new devices that has followed and the many new insights into the quantum world that this revolution has made possible.
