World’s First Programmable Quantum Photonic Chip

Thanks to a research team at the University of Bristol, England, we are one step closer to the reality of home and mobile quantum computing. Contrary to popular opinion, size does matter or rather, lack of size matters. The key to the success of the Bristol quantum chip is the relative small size enabling the chip to be used in standard sized computers.

With the Bristolian quantum chip now in the wild, though, the capabilities and applications of quantum computing will begin to emerge. Experiments that used to take months to set up and run now take seconds.
