Microsoft unveiled a quantum computer prototype in Sept. 2017. The hardware shown here includes a dilution refrigerator that produces temperatures near absolute zero to isolate particles used as computational quantum bits or "qubits" from outside disturbances. The quantum computer and a classical (transistor-based) computer that drives the operation of the quantum computer are located within the refrigerator.
