What are the barriers we will need to overcome to make quantum computing relevant for the real-world problem? Are they problems inherent in scaling physical systems to large numbers of well-controlled qubits? The need for quantum communications networks to allow… Read More »Quantum hardware types and their characteristics
Here’s an interesting lecture on using photon polarization for quantum computing. Time stamps: 0:00 Review of photon polarization measurement, quantum states, and Born’s Rule 26:20 Can Bob determine the state of a single photon sent by Alice? 31:52 Classical bits… Read More »Photon polarization and Qubits
One of the big problems of quantum computing is cooling, and current cooling technology is based on helium-3, which is costly, rare, hard to use, and not scalable. Kiutra developed a new generation of cryogenic refrigeration that helps address those… Read More »A game changer for cooling quantum computers
In this presentation, John Teufel explores how to interface quantum circuits with RF photonics. From the early days of superconducting qubits, one of their most attractive attributes was the inherent scalability of nanofabricated quantum circuits. If these engineered quantum devices… Read More »Interfacing Superconducting Quantum Circuits with an RF Photonic Link
Linus from Linus Tech Tips “unboxes” a D-Wave quantum computer. Yeah, it’s a bit click-baity and from 2017, but it’s a fairly well done video that explains the hardware behind one of the leading quantum computer manufacturers.
Jungsang Kim, CTO & Co-Founder, and Chris Monroe, Chief Scientist & Co-Founder of IonQ, presents to attendees on December 8, 2020 at Q2B20 – Practical Quantum Computing, an annual conference hosted by QC Ware.
Imagine if you will, a quantum computing architecture based on photons rather than the spin of electrons. Such a device is a photonic computer and may just revolutionize a revolutionary technology. In this interview, Lightmatter CEO Nick Harris talks about… Read More »Photonic computing questions answered: Lightmatter CEO
Ions are the qubits existing in nature, like the pennies from the heaven, check out this video from Bensen Hsu to find out more. Chapters: 0:00 Explain maglev train 0:49 What is ion? Why using it? 2:48 Levitate 1000 ions… Read More »Trapped-ion qubit, the maglev train of a quantum computer
