Why qubits need quantum error correction (and vice versa)

Why qubits need quantum error correction (and vice versa)

Collaboration is key to build the next generations of quantum computers, but how do such partnerships work?

In a recent article for EEWeb, Earl Campbell, VP of Quantum Science at Riverlane, and Mark Saffman, Chief Scientist at Infleqtion and Professor of Physics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, spoke exclusively about creating both high-quality qubits and the Quantum Error Correction Stack for useful quantum computing - and the need for QEC and quantum hardware companies to collaborate.

"Building better quantum computers is a very challenging task," said Saffman. "It’s perhaps the most demanding technological challenge that humankind has faced in the last century and requires the expertise and capabilities of different groups of people with different backgrounds."

"It’s incredibly valuable for Riverlane to work with a great partner like Mark and Infleqtion," Campbell added, "especially since Riverlane is building a Quantum Error Correction Stack but we don’t have any qubits. So we love to partner with companies that build really great qubits."

By working together, Infleqtion and Riverlane can test and optimise the designs and execution of their qubits and Quantum Error Correction Stack, respectively, as quantum computers continue to scale and move away from the NISQ era.
