Zurich Instruments introduces qubit amplifier controller

Zurich Instruments offers Quantum Computing researchers a fast track to unleashing the power of parametric amplification for qubit readout. While being critical to achieve the high measurement speed and low error rates needed for quantum error correction, parametric amplification often requires dedicated control electronics for microwave signal conditioning. With the new SHFPPC Parametric Pump Controller, […]

Breakthrough in integrated photonics

Scientists at EPFL, Switzerland, have built a compact waveguide amplifier by successfully incorporating rare-earth ions into integrated photonic circuits. The device produces record output power compared to commercial fiber amplifiers, a first in the development of integrated photonics over the last decades. Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs) are devices that can provide gain to the optical […]

The side effects of quantum error correction and how to cope with them

It is well established that quantum error correction can improve the performance of quantum sensors. But new theory work cautions that, unexpectedly, the approach can also give rise to inaccurate and misleading results — and shows how to rectify these shortcomings. Quantum systems can interact with one another and with their surroundings in ways that […]

New world record for qubit storage

A UNIGE team in Geneva, Switzerland, has succeeded in storing a quantum bit for 20 milliseconds. A duration that had never before been achieved by a solid-state quantum memory. Long-duration quantum memories for photonic qubits are essential components for achieving long-distance quantum networks and repeaters. The mapping of optical states onto coherent spin-waves in rare […]
