Xanadu forms strategic partnerships with NanoQT and QunaSys to bolster quantum computing in Japan

Partnerships

  • Canada-based photonic quantum computing company Xanadu has partnered with Japanese companies Nanofiber Quantum Technologies (NanoQT) and QunaSys to further quantum theory research and software development and support Japan's quantum ecosystem by supplying educational resources and training opportunities.

  • Under the collaboration, QunaSys will use Xanadu's open-source framework, PennyLane, to advance error correction algorithms, promoting their practical application in quantum chemistry and computer-aided engineering. NanoQT will conduct collaborative research with Xanadu on enlarging quantum networks by combining neutral atoms and photons, which could lead to the creation of fault-tolerant quantum computers. 

  • Based in Japan and the US, Nanofiber Quantum Technologies (NanoQT) specializes in developing fiber-connectable quantum computing hardware. NanoQT's primary innovation is its nanofiber cavity Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) technology, which uses neutral atoms and photons as qubits. This approach allows for the development of modular and scalable quantum processing units (QPUs) that can function as quantum repeaters and interconnected computational units. This technology aims to provide a platform for distributed quantum computing and quantum networks, overcoming significant challenges associated with traditional superconducting circuits and ion traps.
