Archer Materials (AXE) said advanced semiconductor device modelling supports its CQ quantum devices’ compatibility with existing industrial foundry processes.

The results will be used to determine which commercial foundries Archer will engage with regarding future fabrication.

To scale the fabrication of CQ chip devices and components, the company will need to work with industrial-scale manufacturers in the global semiconductor supply chain.

“The results of the advanced simulations provides Archer with an initial avenue to designing qubit devices in a form suitable for scalable processing, and importantly, using existing chip production equipment found in many industrial semiconductor manufacturing foundries,” CEO Dr Mohammad Choucair said.

“Archer intends to use this modelling to determine which commercial semiconductor
manufacturers to engage with regarding future fabrication.”

The company must use sophisticated device modelling and simulations to determine which commercial foundries could address Archer’s future fabrication.

Further, it has performed 3D electrostatic finite element modelling in conjunction with in-house software development relevant to the company’s qubit material.

Current quantum computing qubit architectures rely on custom made fabrication, unlike
modern classical computing circuits which are primarily silicon-based and are manufactured in well-established industrial semiconductor facilities.

Shares is Archer Materials were up 14.2 per cent, trading at 72.5 cents at market close.
