LightOn unveils its plan to join the quantum computing space with the LightOn Qore series of quantum photonic processors. LightOn Qores are versatile, powerful and low loss platforms designed for the rapidly growing field of NISQ (Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum) computing.
The Qore devices feature plug-and-play photonic processors designed for robust reconfigurable unitary operations on quantum resources. As rackable units, they can be integrated into most existing optical quantum computing platforms. LightOn Qores are compatible with continuous and discrete variable systems and can deal with a wide range of wavelengths, from the visible to the telecom range. Each Qore connects up to 8 input quantum states onto 19 distinct optical railings, therefore, performing any 19×19 unitary linear operation with up to 8 entangled photons at minimal loss and a reconfigurability rate of 10Hz.
The first commercially available Qore processor is set for release in Q2 2022. This 3U rackable device features fibered inputs and outputs to interface with most quantum sources and detection systems available on the market.
