Hitting a Quantum Volume Chord: IBM Quantum adds six new systems with Quantum Volume 32

Six months after the first Quantum Volume 32 demonstration, IBM now hosts eight quantum computing systems that cross the QV32 performance threshold. Six of these are completely new systems: three 27-qubit Falcons and three 5-qubit Canaries.

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.
