Rising above the noise: quantum-limited amplifiers empower the readout of IBM Quantum systems

A key pillar for deploying IBM Quantum systems into the cloud is the ability to read out their quantum states with high fidelity in real time. This critical capability is made possible using special kinds of low-noise microwave amplifiers, known as quantum-limited amplifiers.

Quantum Takes Flight: Moving from Laboratory Demonstrations to Building Systems

Last year we at IBM declared that in order to achieve quantum advantage within the next decade, we will need to at least double the Quantum Volume of our quantum computing systems every year. What better way to start this first full week of 2020 than by announcing that we have added our fourth data point to our progress road map and achieved a system demonstrating Quantum Volume of 32.

Get to the heart of real quantum hardware

Our newest freely available quantum computing system takes one more step toward bringing the lab to the cloud. It features pulse-level control, and when coupled with today’s release of the new version of Qiskit (version 0.14), any IBM Quantum Experience user now has the ability to construct schedules of pulses and execute them. The role of experimental quantum physicist is now available to anyone with internet access.
