DiagnostiQ

Diagnostics for advanced quantum devices

The DiagnostiQ project aims to accelerate innovation in quantum chip development by turning key scientific results into a commercially ready product for faster diagnostics of superconducting quantum chips. The DiCarlo lab at QuTech will provide next-generation chip designs as well as protocols to diagnose the system. A qubit diagnostic system will be developed capable of automatically calibrating and characterizing next-generation (tuneable-coupler based) superconducting quantum devices.

OrangeQS will be building a qubit diagnostic system capable of testing next-generation quantum chips with up to 17 qubits.

Quaracter

Quantum Device Diagnostics System

Quaracter aims to lay the foundations for a system suitable for characterizing quantum processors based on superconducting microcircuits, which can accelerate the development of QPUs/qubits and thus the introduction of practically usable quantum computers. The core and focus of this project will be on accelerating the quantum processor development cycle, by being able to perform quantum characterizations quickly and easily by means of a signal-noise effective and thermally efficient quantum processor characterization system.

OrangeQS contributes by designing the system and delivering an OrangeQS Rack.

MATQu

Materials for Quantum Computing

The MATQu project will validate technology options to produce SJJs on industrial 300 mm silicon-based process flows. The project addresses substrate technology, superconducting metals, resonator technology, through-wafer-via holes, 3D integration, and variability characterization. The substrate-, process- and test-compatibility will be assessed with respect to integration practices for qubits. Core substrate and process technologies with high quality factors, improved material deposition on large substrates, and increased critical temperature for superconducting operation, will be developed and validated. Concerning substrate technology, process technology and tools, MATQu brings together major European actors in the field, including four large RTOs.

OrangeQS contributes by providing a quantum system to characterize the performance of superconducting qubits in order to close the quantum device engineering cycle.

IMPAQT

Accelerating quantum computer development by integrating off-the-shelf components

 

IMPAQT is a project by independent companies dedicated to speeding up the process of manufacturing and integrating subsystems. IMPAQT members specialize in developing state-of-the-art components for quantum computers. We ensure that different components of the quantum computing stack integrate well by standardizing the interfaces between components. A supply chain of specialized companies will accelerate the development of quantum computers.

OrangeQS contributed by doing the quantum system integration and providing advanced qubit measurement and control software.

EIC Accelerator

High-Throughput Quantum Chip Testing

 

In their EIC Accelerator project, OrangeQS develops an Industry Diagnostics System, which will support the emerging quantum chips industry to transition from lab to fab by reducing the test cost per qubit significantly.

Today, testing quantum chips is an expensive, slow and difficult process, due to the required high-tech lab environment, manual workflows and PhD-level operators involved. If the quantum computing value chain wants to increase the number of high-quality qubits per quantum chip, it will need industry-level foundry processes combined with fast test equipment.

The project leverages both the EIC Accelerator grant from the European Innovation Council (EIC) as well as a pre-seed investment round of €1.5M by QDNL Participations and Cottonwood Technology Fund, to develop the world’s most capable quantum chip test equipment.

QuKiT

Novel qubit type based on hybrid qubit platform

 

The QuKiT project is a collaborative effort of Orange QS together with TU Delft, IOM Materials Foundry at the Italian National Research Council (CNR), Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA), Energiatudomanyi Kutatokozpont (EK), Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and University of Augsburg. The project aims to develop a novel qubit that is immune to most decoherence mechanisms currently limiting mainstream implementations of a quantum computer. This qubit, the Kitmon, is based on a hybrid between superconducting qubits and a two-dimensional platform.

OrangeQS contributes by developing a custom OrangeQS Rack, a standalone integrated hardware/software system suitable for testing these hybrid qubits.

The project leverages a Pathfinder grant, awarded to the consortium by the European Innovation Council. More information can be found in this news item and on the QuKiT project page at cordis.europa.eu.
