Quantum Computing: The Next Frontier in Technology and Science

Quantum computing is a new way to build computing devices that harnesses the phenomena of quantum physics. It uses individual atomic or atomic-like particles, known as qubits, as the basic building blocks to hold information and leverages two quantum phenomena to implement computing:

  • The principle of superposition allows storing a large amount of information within individual qubits, much more than the two ‘bit’ states of a digital computer.
  • The principle of entanglement allows the encoding of complex relationships between qubits and the information encoded within them.

The ability to achieve high information density and implement complex relationships within this information are key features of a quantum computer, as they allow the execution of intricate computations very efficiently.

For some tasks, the efficiency gain can be exponential: it would require exponentially more resources to implement and execute the exact computation on a digital computer. Therefore, quantum computers may enable us to run complex computations with unparalleled efficiency and solve some of the most challenging problems of our time.>

Making an Impact: Our Role in Changing the World

Five years ago, Akkodis made an ambitious entry into the field of quantum computing. When we began our journey, we wanted to become part of the development of quantum computers with unparalleled power and capability tailored to solving real-world business challenges. To make this happen, we joined forces with leading European research institutions and industrial partners to build state-of-the-art quantum computers based on trapped ions. This architecture of building quantum processors is particularly suitable for realizing qubits and computational operations of unprecedented quality.

Such quantum processors, however, only function with classical control electronics which provide the signals to trap the ions and perform the computational operations. The contribution by Akkodis is to develop such real-time control electronics and operating system. This system has been developed through four research collaborations to build four quantum computer systems based on trapped ions: all employing different designs. These systems are optimized for robustness and scalability to enable continuous operation and make these systems the first choice to execute real-world problems.
