MIT R&D funding for Quaracter: developing a quantum chip diagnostic tool

The Quaracter project proposal by Orange Quantum Systems, Delft Circuits and Leiden Cryogenics was ranked 1st by the evaluation committee of Province of South Holland MIT grants! Province of South Holland representatives' de Zoet and Stolk visited the House of Quantum in Delft and handed over the check to the project coordinators. With current technology, the chip dioagnostic process represents a bottleneck in developing and scaling quantum processors and quantum computing technology in general. The main objective of the Quaracter project is to develop a characterization system for quantum processors.

Towards European Standards for Quantum Technologies

The CEN-CENELEC Focus Group on Quantum Technologies (FGQT) has released a paper (arXiv:2203.01622) presenting its insights on standardisation for quantum technologies. Orange Quantum Systems is a proud member of FGQT. As a systems integrator, we need to integrate different components from different manufacturers in our products. Currently the interfaces between these components are not well defined, providing a clear need for standardisation efforts.

Province of South-Holland supports impaQT

The collaboration of R&D institutes, companies and governments in the province of South Holland offers opportunities on a global level. That is why the Province of South Holland, together with MRDH and Quantum Delta NL, has awarded €450,000 to the ImpaQT consortium. This is a consortium of 6 regional companies that is building the first Dutch NISQ quantum computer. On Wednesday 26 January, administrators from South Holland met to discuss the opportunities and developments in the field of quantum for the region.

A Practical Guide for Building Superconducting Quantum Devices


We are very excited to see the tutorial on cQED, the technology behind superconducting qubits, that out director R&D and co-founder Adriaan Rol has been working on with Yvonne Gao, Steven Touzard both of the Nat. Univ. of Singapore, and Chen Wang of the Univ. of Massachusetts-Amhrest got published in PRX Quantum today! We hope this work will make it easier for anyone looking to get into this fascinating field.

Thank you Yvonne Gao, Steven Touzard, and Chen Wang for making it possible.

Check out our paper on PRX Quantum or arXiv.
