One British Company Aims to make Quantum Chip Design Smarter

THE British based company, Quantopticon, was founded by a number of physicists who have been developing their software suite over the past two decades. Quantillion was developed with the purpose to help researchers and designers build smarter photonics devices. As the competition for building quantum computers and Qubits heats up, scientists are looking at ways to build more effective photonic devices, faster and more cost effectively. This is where the rapid prototyping software can replace physical prototyping in the design cycle.

Quantum photonic platforms allow for an edge in Quantum Supremacy

These past years have seen quantum news centre on a select few exotic platforms primarily, including supercooled- and superconducting-qubit platforms like Google’s Sycamore, as well as trapped-ion or trapped-atom computers. The former was 2019’s evidence of quantum supremacy, a triumph for Google. The latter platform is proven to effectively simulate complex physical quantum dynamics.
