QuTech, Eurofiber and Juniper Networks to deploy a Quantum testbed in The Netherlands

QuTech, Eurofiber and Juniper Networks have launched a Quantum testbed connecting several datacenter locations in The Netherlands. This testbed enables, amongst other applications of quantum cryptography, a way for partners to explore secure communications based on the fundamental laws of quantum physics. The testbed is open for new partners to join and co-explore quantum technology’s […]

Linking two independent quantum nodes for future metropolitan quantum networks

Researchers at QuTech have demonstrated a key technology for linking quantum nodes over existing telecom fiber, by realizing quantum interference of photons emitted by quantum devices at telecom wavelengths. The technique also allows for compensating intrinsic differences between the quantum devices. For a quantum network to function it uses a particular quantum effect between the […]

Measuring entanglement without destroying it on commercial quantum computers

In quantum mechanics, the act of measurement produces unavoidable perturbation (also called “back-action”) on the state of the measured system. This effect is, in many cases, not desirable, as back-action often limits the precision of repeated measurements. However, so-called Quantum Non-Demolition (QND) measurements ensure that the unavoidable and deleterious back-action is diverted onto other system […]

QuTech and Fujitsu realise the fault-tolerant operation of a qubit

Researchers from QuTech, in collaboration with Fujitsu and Element Six, have demonstrated the fault-tolerant operation of a quantum bit using a quantum processor based on spin qubits in diamond. The team has realized a logical qubit using their recently introdued 29-qubit quantum processor. Their qubits consist of electron and nuclear spins associated with a nitrogen-vacancy […]
