// X-Series

Nanophotonic chip powered by laser pulses



Access the paradigm-shifting X-Series devices — the first photonic quantum computers deployed to the cloud. Powered by laser pulses, the X-Series push the boundaries of integrated quantum nanophotonics by demonstrating generation of on-chip squeezed states (the photonic analogue of a qubit) alongside fully programmable quantum gates and photon-number resolving detectors. Learn more about the X-Series devices in our publication in Nature.

Key Features

  • Program the world’s first cloud-accessible integrated quantum nanophotonic device.
  • Perform Gaussian boson sampling with applications in chemistry and graph networks.
  • Evaluate on-chip squeezing, generating a pulse of photons analogous to a qubit.
  • Use cutting-edge detectors to accurately count photons at the end of the circuit.

Getting Started
