Application: Quantum information processing device and quantum information processing system (Patent ID: US20240037437A1)

The patent filed by Hitachi Ltd. describes a quantum information processing device that includes a control unit and a common control gate line connected to a quantum bit array. The control unit ensures that the number of quantum bits operated in the array is less than or equal to half the total number of transistors, with the quantum bits arranged in a two-dimensional tetragonal lattice. The device can have quantum bits in a non-operational state in the center or edge portions of the array, and the transistors can be for trapping electrons or as barrier transistors.

The claims of the patent specify the configuration and operation of the quantum information processing device, including the control of quantum bits in the array, the arrangement of quantum bits in non-operational states, and the type of transistors used. Additionally, the patent includes a quantum information processing system that incorporates the described device and a host computer for control. Overall, the patent focuses on optimizing the control and operation of quantum bits within the array to enhance quantum information processing capabilities.
