An international team of scientists has developed a photon processor
For its manufacture, glass, silicon and standard technologies for the production of semiconductors were used. The innovation has become an additional 6 waveguards for universal linear optical transformations and 15 complex interferometers, each of which can be programmed. As a result, a quantum processor will be able to simultaneously perform many operations.
About the work done was told by a team member of the University Student Bristol Jacques Karolan:
“We conducted experiments for several hours every day during the year. The chip we created can become the basis of the whole direction of science, which we could not even assume. The chip is made and installed in such a way that we do not need to rebuild it. With its help, we can conduct a huge number of experiments daily, which was unthinkable several years ago “.
