World View Stratospheric Balloon. Credit: World View World View is a leading global stratospheric exploration company that flies stratospheric balloons at altitudes as high as 100,000 feet for remote sensing, imaging, navigation, and data gathering applications. At the maximum height, a sensor in the balloon has a line of sight extending out on a radius of 388 miles and could cover an area of over 470,000 square miles. Infleqtion is teaming up with World View to understand how Infleqtion's quantum based sensors could be used in such an environment. They will be working together to demonstrate how Infleqtion's cold atom based [...]

Washington State Seeking to Be the Next Quantum Technology Cluster

2023-01-25T16:33:10-08:00

Several different locations in the United States are vying to be the next "Silicon Valley" where there is a concentration of companies and academic institutions that have a critical mass of expertise in a particular technology. Some of the locations that would like to achieve this in quantum tech include the Virginia/Maryland/DC area, Chicago, Colorado, New York state and others. And now the Washington Technology Industry Association (WTIA) is making a play to include the Pacific Northwest in the list. The WTIA commissioned a study to look at the competitive situation along with the areas strengths and weaknesses for attracting more [...]

Welinq Receives a €5 Million ($5.4M USD) Pre-Seed Round Funding

2023-01-23T17:28:45-08:00

Welinq is a Paris, France based startup founded in 2020 that is developing quantum memory technology which would be critical for extending the range of a quantum communications network and could also be used in connecting multiple quantum computers together for scaling up quantum computing. Their product is based upon a  laser-cooled neutral-atom technology which allows them to achieve high qubit fidelities. The funding round was led by Quantonation with additional participation from Luxembourg-based Runa Capital and support from the Paris Region, the French National Quantum Initiative, the French Banque Publique d’Investissement (BPI), and the European Commission. Additional information is available [...]

Could the Tech Industry Layoffs Be a Silver Lining for the Quantum Industry Cloud?

2023-01-21T14:02:55-08:00

I was recently talking with the CEO of a major quantum company about personnel recruitment and he said something that was initially quite surprising to me. He indicated that recruiting qualified classical engineers was more of a challenge for their company than recruiting quantum specialists! On further thought, that makes sense to me now. It turns out that an awful lot of the technology that goes into a quantum computer is classically based. These include activities like developing classical control electronics for controlling the qubits, creating graphical user interfaces, data base engineering, integrating a quantum computer with a classical processor for [...]

D-Wave Announces Continued Technical Progress and Customer Traction at Its Annual Qubits 2023 Conference

2023-01-17T21:09:21-08:00

At its annual Qubits 2023 conference being held in Miami, Florida, D-Wave Quantum Inc. announced continued progress on its Clarity product roadmap as well as continued progress with customers developing solutions that can run on their quantum annealer. To begin with, they described the progress being made on their future Advantage2 annealer which will have 7,000 qubits using using an architecture they call Zephyr. That processor will have qubit-to-qubit connectivity of 20 versus the predecessor Advantage processor which has only 15. This will allow them to better embedded programs onto the machine and use fewer qubits. In addition, Advantage2 will use [...]
