Xanadu Photonic Quantum Chip Solves Trillions of Times Faster

Canadian quantum computer company, Xanadu, has used its photonic quantum computer chip, Borealis, to solve a problem in 36 microseconds versus classical supercomputers taking 9000 years. This is 7884 trillion times faster. This runtime advantage is more than 50 million times larger than that of earlier photonic demonstrations. An earlier quantum photonic computer used a …

Atom Computing’s Neutral Atom Quantum Computer Sets Coherence Record

Atom Computing has closed a $60M in Series B funding, which brings their total funding to $80 million. They are building a larger second-generation quantum computing system that can run commercial use-cases. Atom Computing’s record-setting qubit coherence was 40 seconds plus or minus 7 seconds. That may not seem very long compared to everyday life, …

Diamond Qubit Quantum Computer Deployed at Cray Supercomputer Center

The Australian Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre has installed a room-temperature diamond-based quantum computer developed by Quantum Brilliance. They use synthetic diamonds to run at room temperature. It is a nitrogen-vacancy center based qubit, an imperfection within diamonds, which can be manipulated at room temperature. The system has been paired with Setonix, Pawsey’s HPE Cray EX …

Quantum Spin Liquid Could Enable Topological Qubits

A new state of matter, called quantum spin liquid, produces long-range quantum entanglement which might help make quantum computers. They could enable topological qubits. Bill Gates and Microsoft have been funding efforts to create a topological quantum computer. Topological qubits could theoretically be far more stable and enable long lasting quantum calculations. The work is …
