Quantum computing architectures

Ion Trap designs targeted at the multi-million qubit level, in collaboration with Universal Quantum and the University of Sussex.

Superconducting qubit microarchitectures addressing critical issues that will bottleneck scalability, in collaboration with Tokyo University of Science and RIKEN.

Designing microarchitectures that will scale to millions or billions of qubits.

Our work on quantum computing architecture design at QTS is to formulate the next generation of quantum computing architectures. The first generation found appropriate systems that could be used as qubits, the second generation incorporated error correction and gave us conceptual scalability to millions of qubits. The next generation of quantum architecture design is focused on solving critical issues around scalability that we can foresee as bottlenecks as quantum computing chips scale from hundreds to thousands to millions of physical qubits.

We work very closely with multiple experimental groups to refine and continue to evolve their given hardware systems. These include Superconductors (Tokyo), Silicon (Sydney), Diamond (Vienna) and optics (Stuttgart).

Our work with quantum computing architectures are of direct consequence for the QTS bench-Q platform which we are creating with hardware collaborations such as Ion Traps (IonQ), Superconductors (Rigetti) and optics (PsiQuantum).
