PHOTONICS QUANTUM SAMPLING MACHINE

Project description

Realising the potential of quantum computing in a photonics computational device

Quantum computers harness the magical possibilities of quantum mechanics to significantly enhance computing power. Their potential to surpass classical computation, demonstrating so-called quantum supremacy, has yet to be realised. Recently, the study of computational problems that produce samples from probability distributions (quantum sampling problems or random circuit sampling) has highlighted a potential path forward to demonstrate quantum supremacy. Random circuits quickly develop long-range entanglement, making them very difficult to simulate with classical algorithms. One promising way to achieve useful quantum computation is by using a hybrid computational model combining classical and quantum processes. The EU-funded PHOQUSING project plans to implement such a hybrid computational system based on integrated cutting-edge photonics, placing Europe at the forefront of a competitive and economically important emerging field.
