    Xanadu and imec Partner on Photonic Chips for Quantum

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Xanadu, a full-stack photonic quantum computing company, and imec are partnering to develop the next generation of quantum qubits based on ultralow-loss silicon nitride waveguides.

Specifically, these photonic qubits are based on squeezed states — a special type of light generated by chip-integrated silicon photonic devices. This approach uses particles of light to carry information through photonic chips, rather than electrons or ions used by other approaches. Xanadu’s photonic approach offers the benefits of scalability to one million qubits…
