Totally cool IC video…

If you’ve ever wondered how silicon chips are made, watch this video. It’s really cool:

Similar processes are used to make quantum computing chips, albeit with different materials. These semiconductor industry techniques have been developed over decades into the complex processes you see in this video. So understanding why it is so hard to make reproducible quantum processors should be obvious – we need to develop similarly complicated and well controlled processes for the new technologies.
