  • Quantum hardware – into the quantum jungle
    The quantum computing landscape has been transformed by a surge of commercial startups pursuing very different technical paths. Investors and pioneers must prepare themselves for a challenging journey ahead. A growing list of major, midsized and startup companies have joined the quantum computing quest. However today’s prototype devices must be... Read more
  • Topological qubits
    We don’t worry about errors in conventional computing chips because the digital transistor has hardware error correction built in. That’s why transistors replaced valves, unlocking the digital revolution. The idea behind topological qubits is to repeat this trick. Topological qubit proponents often use the analogy of tying a knot in... Read more
  • Control and measurement plane
    As one of the first quantum platforms to start to significantly scale-up, superconducting qubit platforms have been first to face a series of control plane challenges. These are complicated by the need to work down to extreme cryogenic temperatures. Pioneers face challenges across cryogenics, control electronics and control software. Cryogenics... Read more

Project Description

For more than a decade, we’ve been making consistent investments in our quantum dream team, comprised of some of the greatest minds in quantum physics, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. Working with universities, industries, and governments, this team’s collaborative approach has consistently delivered the cutting-edge innovation that continues to bring scalable quantum computing closer and closer to reality.

In order to empower the quantum revolution and widely welcome customers, developers, and enthusiasts, we need a system that scales. Unlike other quantum systems built on a fragile, error-prone foundation, every component of our infrastructure is designed for scalability. Our approach uses topological qubits specifically for their higher accuracy, lower cost, and ability to perform long enough to solve complex real-world problems.

Azure integration will provide a seamless and streamlined quantum experience from development and testing to full-scale enterprise-grade deployment. As innovation continues, customers will have access to the power of quantum computing alongside advanced classical processing and storage in Azure. For example, data could be processed with advanced computing—CPU, GPU, or FPGA—or with the quantum processing unit (QPU).
