Harnessing the immense power of an orchestrated interaction.
Leveraging the unique properties of photons, photonic quantum circuits enable lightning-fast computational capabilities. Photons traverse intricate pathways, engaging in delicate interference phenomena before reaching detectors. The firing patterns of these detectors hold the key to the computation's outcome.
Photonic technologies are a key component for quantum communication. However, they face fierce competition from other quantum computing platforms, such as trapped ion systems and superconducting circuits based on the Josephson Junction. The ultimate winner will likely depend on the specific application, and the race continues to captivate scientists and enthusiasts alike.
