Quandela Installing Optical Qubit Sources at Moscow State University
(Quandela.com) Quandela’s team has been in Russia for the installation of optical qubit sources at Moscow State University. On site, the Moscow research team is developing a quantum computer on an optical chip and aims to achieve 50 qubits using Quandela’s technology.
Quandela is developing unique, high-performance and reliable photonic qubit sources that are a technological building block for the creation of photonic quantum computers, secure quantum networks and ultra-precise sensors.
Created in 2017 by Pascale Senellart (CNRS senior scientist), Valérian Giesz, and Niccolo Somaschi, Quandela is a spin-off from the Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (C2N, CNRS-Université Paris Saclay) in Palaiseau, in the scientific cluster of Paris-Saclay. Quandela is one of the first companies in the world to market photonic qubit emitters in the form of single photon sources for the development of optical quantum computers and, in the middle term, their networking via secure quantum communications. Based on unique know-how and several patents, Quandela’s semiconductor nanostructure technology enables the emission of single photons very efficiently and extremely reliably.
