PhoQuant: Photonic Quantum Computing - Quantum computing evaluation platform

When a sufficient number of quantum particles are interconnected, quantum computers can handle tasks that are unsolvable for classical computers. This – among other unique selling points – is a major advantage of photonic platforms: Integrated architectures and sophisticated manufacturing processes offer an enormous scaling potential. The aim of ...

Photonic Quantum Systems Network (PhoQSNET) - Quantum communication infrastructure

Data security is critical to modern society. From personal data and identity fraud to cyber-attacks threatening the integrity of sovereign nations, the need for secure communication and data processing has never been greater. While quantum networks address some of these issues, in that they can be provably secure for many cryptographic ...

Characterizing the complexity of physical quantum problems with oracle complexity classes

A primary motivation behind quantum computation is to efficiently compute properties of quantum systems in Nature. Yet, using tools from computer science, one can prove (up to standard conjectures) that certain properties of Nature simply cannot be computed efficiently by either a classical nor quantum computer. In recent years, the set of such ...

The Quantum Satisfiability Problem: Algorithms & Complexity-Theoretic Hardness

In theoretical computer science, the Boolean Satisfiability Problem (k-SAT) is a canonical "intractable" problem, and has attracted much attention from both algorithms and complexity theoretic perspectives. There is a quantum generalization of k-SAT, denoted the Quantum SAT problem (k-QSAT), which is physically motivated via connections to ...
