(LaserFocusWorld) Supported by pre-seed investor RAPH2INVEST, QuiX has been launched with the aim to introduce the first single-purpose photonic quantum computer on the market for use in machine learning and quantum simulation applications. The technology is based on research that has, for example, resulted in a silicon nitride waveguide based reconfigurable 8×8 integrated linear optical network for quantum information processing.
Dutch Scientists Ad Lagendijk, Willem Vos, Klaus Boller, Pepijn Pinkse, and Jelmer Renema are working to create a path to quantum computing that builds on their fundamental research creating the first quantum photonic processor based on silicon nitride waveguides.
QuiX will make the first components of this computer available in two years, in the form of a photonic processor with specifications aimed at far beyond the current state-of-the-art. Such a device could be of strong interest to the academic and commercial quantum computing communities.
