QuiX Quantum, the market leader in photonic quantum computing hardware, has announced a new product line of quantum photonic processors, which are compatible with quantum light sources in the near-infrared wavelength range (900-970 nm), including InGaAs quantum dots.

This product line complements QuiX Quantum’s existing offerings of quantum photonic processors at telecom wavelength, and near-term quantum computers. The processor offers the record specifications that have become a hallmark of QuiX Quantum’s devices.

Quantum computing will revolutionise the way we process information, in fields such as machine learning, chemistry and finance, because of its ability to outperform supercomputers at certain computational tasks. A quantum photonic processor is a device that can be used to manipulate light for computations. Such processors are the heart of a photonic quantum computer – a quantum computer that uses particles of light as the basic information-carrying units.

QuiX Quantum, a quantum computing hardware firm located in Enschede, the Netherlands, is the world leader in producing quantum photonic processors, having previously put in the market a processor operating at telecom (1550 nm) wavelength. This processor is now the de-facto standard for photonic quantum information processing in Europe, being in use by the French, German, British, and Hungarian quantum ecosystems.

With this new product, QuiX Quantum extends its product portfolio by adding the 900-970 nm operation wavelength range to the 1550 nm processors product line and the NISQ computing system. This addition enables integrated quantum photonic information processing using the high-end single-photon sources available at that wavelength range, including InGaAs quantum dots. The details of the processor are disclosed in a scientific publication available on the arXiv repository, available at
