Coding for Qubits: How to Program in Quantum Computer Assembly Language
QSCOUT, an open-source quantum computer project at Sandia, utilizes a new quantum assembly code called Jaqal. The QSCOUT team has released a Python package that provides a Jaqal emulator as well as commands to include Jaqal code as an object inside a larger Python program.
Three Frosty Innovations for Better Quantum Computers
Due to the strict requirement for quantum computers to be kept at cold temperatures, many research efforts are underway to enable circuits to run in cryogenic conditions. This was an important topic at December’s IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM). This article explores three such efforts.
Diamond-Based Quantum Accelerator Puts Qubits in a Server Rack
The startup Quantum Brilliance recently announced that they have developed a market-ready, diamond-based quantum computer the size of a server rack module that can operate at room temperatures. Its makers envision this device fitting aboard satellites and autonomous vehicles by 2026.
