"Quantum technology is beginning to come into its own.
After decades as laboratory curiosities, some of quantum physics’ oddest effects are beginning to be put to use.
New alliances will be forged as the work on materials intensifies. Intel aims to build qubits into silicon, in order to piggyback on existing fabrication infrastructure. But that will require the material to be produced to a much higher purity. To that end, Intel has joined forces with Urenco and Air Liquide, two materials firms."
