A Look at Women Pushing the Limits of Quantum Frontiers: Yiwen Chu

It’s likely that you already know that women are less than 30% of the world’s scientists. In the quantum ecosystem, they take up an even smaller share. While it’s common knowledge that women are still underrepresented in most quantum physics labs, their numbers are slowly growing. In honor of National Women in STEM Day, we’d...

Quantum Machines’ 2021 Wrap Up

2022 is right around the corner! Yes, we hear ya; it does sound like “2020 too,” which brings back some flashbacks and should probably come with a trigger warning. Nonetheless, at QM we’re welcoming it with open arms. We’re ready to leap forward towards the possibilities this new year will bring. Honestly, our heads are…

Understanding a Superconducting Qubit Readout with QUA

In collaboration with Gal Winer Over two and a half days at the end of October ’21, a group of (mostly) physics graduate students gathered in the beautiful and historic city of Heidelberg, Germany, for a great event: The “Quantum Idea Factory,” run by the EFEQT program. Alongside mentors from prestigious research institutes in the…

Paving the Path Towards Near-Term Quantum Advantage with the Quantum Orchestration Platform

Getting started in quantum computing (QC) used to be very intimidating for people without a quantum physics background. Nowadays, it seems that practically anyone can join this next revolution given the plethora of resources available online! Like many of my fellow students, most of my training relied heavily on self-learning initiatives, especially because I wanted…

An Ode to Virtual Conferences: IEEE QCE 2021

It is a truth universally acknowledged that over the past year and a half conferences are not what they once were. The chaotic dashing from room to room in search of interesting talks has been replaced by the online scrolling of abstracts. The awkward elevator conversations have been replaced with choppy introductions over zoom. The…

Quantum Machines Adds Qualcomm Ventures to Investor List

Less than two months after announcing a $50 million Series B funding round, Israel-based Quantum Machines revealed Tuesday that Qualcomm Ventures has come on board as an investor through an extension of the Series B round. The exact amount of the investment was not disclosed, but comes as the start-up has big expansion plans as it looks…

How to Dramatically Increase the Initialization Fidelity of Your Qubits with QUA

Introduction Qubit initialization is crucial for useful quantum computing, and there are various methods in which it is implemented. Whenever we see circuits showing various algorithms, we take it as a given that the qubits all start out in their ground state. However, in reality, we cannot take this fact for granted. Qubit reset, a…

Meet Us During IEEE QCE 2021

The IEEE Quantum Week 2021 is just around the corner, and we have prepared an outstanding program for it! A quantum superstar-filled panel on the future of quantum computing, as well as an extensive workshop that will teach you how to use a single platform to control 5 different types of qubits. So, be sure…

Quantum Machines $50 Million Funding Round Signals Quantum Computing Growing Up

Israeli startup Quantum Machines has raised $50 million in a Series B round of funding, bringing its total funding to date to $73 million. The latest round was led by Red Dot Capital Partners with the participation of Exor, Claridge Israel, Samsung NEXT, Valor Equity Partners, Atreides Management LP, and joined by TLV Partners, Battery…

Introduction to Digital Filters 01: First things FIRst

[Written in collaboration with Gal Winer]— To control qubits we need to manipulate electrical signals – this is the business of quantum control. We need to generate the right signal shape, setting both its nominal voltage value and the exact time at which it occurs. This is not always an easy task because… well, life…
