LightOn Qores is designed to be a key part of universal quantum computing schemes that are based on the KLM (Knill, Laflamme, and Milburn) protocol. In this approach, quantum gates are applied to source states through the conjunction of linear optical operations and photon detection. Providing fibered inputs and outputs to interface with most quantum sources and detection systems, Qores tackle the implementation of the desired linear operations. Leveraging LightOn’s experience in light control and mixing, Qore technology accomplishes this by applying arbitrary and user-controlled interference on the incoming states.
This complex mixing architecture represents a promising alternative to waveguide-based systems, as it is well suited for large-scale computing. The devices’ thermal stability, power consumption, and reconfigurability rate are indeed fixed regardless of the scale of the implemented optical circuit.
