    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
  • Photonic
    Light is the first system where humans observed quantum phenomena and remains in many ways the best understood. Conventionally driven investment in silicon photonics has now transformed our ability to engineer light in compact devices. Photons are naturally immune to many conventional forms of noise and most operations can already... Read more

Project Description

Xanadu designs and integrates quantum silicon photonic chips into existing hardware to create truly full-stack quantum computing.

Instead of using electrons to carry information and perform calculations, we use photons. Unlike electrons, photons are very stable and are almost unaffected by random noise from heat. We use photonic chips to generate, control, and measure photons in ways that enable extremely fast computation.

We work with foundries for chip fabrication, leveraging photonics at its cutting edge with lithographically-written photonic integrated circuits.

Laser light powers our quantum processor chips, traveling and interacting through nano-scale channels.

The fundamental resource for computation -- squeezed light -- is generated on chip and used for calculations intractable for conventional chips.
