# 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…

## 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…

## Active Reset: Fast Feedback, Dynamic Decisions, and Trying ‘Til You Get It Right

We’ve all been there. You have a problem with your laptop or phone – it’s being weird and annoying and you can’t get it to do what you want. The first thing everybody always says to do is to turn it off and on again. Why does that work? At that point you’re probably too…

## Machine Learning for Quantum Processing: How to Run Real-Time Neural Networks

Written in collaboration with and extending on research by Ilan Mitnikov Quantum computing and neural networks; to be completely honest, I can’t imagine a more hyped-up combination of techy buzzwords. These days it seems like almost everything has a “quantum” prefix, and it often makes my eyes roll. I imagine that people working on machine…

## A Novice Quantum Programmer’s Guide to QUA, or How I Found My Quantum Love Language

I’ll start this post with a small disclaimer: my relationship status with coding is a firm “it’s complicated”. It’s been a rollercoaster of bouts of love and excitement, and moments when I vowed to never open another Vim terminal ever again. I love coding, but I’m not sure coding feels the same about me. Yet…
