China Aims for Self-Sufficiency in Quantum Computing Fridges

China is making significant strides towards producing its own dilution refrigerators for cooling superconducting chips in quantum computers, to reduce its dependence on foreign cryogenic devices, that use helium. Two scientists at Anhui University have developed a dilution fridge capable of achieving an absolute zero environment as low as 8.5 milli-Kelvin (mK), meeting international standards achieved by Western companies. With seed funding from Hefei Technology and Innovation Group, the scientists plan to commercialise their fridge and eliminate the need for China to import dilution fridges from overseas. This move seeks to enhance China's self-sufficiency in quantum computing technology. We see Quantum Computing as a key long-term driver of helium demand.
