QuiX Quantum has realized the largest quantum photonic processor compatible with quantum dots for the European project PHOQUSING, says Quix Quantum in a press release. 

The project aims to realize a quantum sampling machine that will push the potential of photonic quantum computing forward in showing a European quantum advantage. The processor realized by QuiX Quantum is the core component of the quantum sampling machine.

De-facto standard

Thanks to its unique and mature technology, QuiX Quantum delivers a record-size 20-mode quantum photonic processor compatible with quantum dots sources for Europe. The processor is one of the key components of a near-term quantum computing device, i.e., a quantum sampling machine, able to show a quantum advantage. This achievement strengthens the position of QuiX Quantum as European leader in the quantum hardware market. QuiX Quantum processors are now the de-facto standard for photonic quantum information processing in Europe, being in use by the FrenchGermanBritish, and Hungarian quantum ecosystems.

Quantum sampling machines

Quantum sampling machines based on light are believed to be very promising for showing a quantum advantage. The problem of drawing samples from a probability distribution, mathematically too complex for a classical computer, can be solved easily by letting light propagating through such quantum sampling machines. At the very core of quantum sampling machines there are large-scale linear optical interferometers, i.e., photonic processors.

Academic world and industry

The PHOQUSING project brings together the leading European academic (Sapienza, IFN-CNR, LIN, CNRS, Sorbonne Université) and industrial players (QuiX Quantum, Veriqloud) of quantum information processing and integrated photonics. Prof. Fabio Sciarrino of the Physics Department of Sapienza Universitá di Roma, coordinator of the project, says: ”The established high-performance photonic technology provided by QuiX Quantum is crucial for the success of the project as it addresses the need of science-to-technology transition needed for developing useful quantum computation”. 

Spintout of the University of Twente

QuiX Quantum is a quantum technology firm located in Enschede, the Netherlands, and is a spinout of the University of Twente, with the main investors being Forward One and Oost NL. The delivered 20-mode processor, working at 925 nm, consolidates the recently released product line of quantum photonic processors compatible with quantum light sources in the near-infrared wavelength range.
