Nüvü Cameras, a specialist in ultra-sensitive imaging tech, has teamed up with quantum technology companies Riverlane and Infleqtion to develop imaging systems that can accurately measure qubit states. The Scalable Qubit Array Detection for Rydberg Quantum Computers aims to improve how the status of qubits in these systems is read and interpreted, which could make quantum computers easier to scale.

The project focuses on neutral atom qubits used in Infleqtion's quantum computing platform. Accurate state knowledge of these atoms is essential for quantum computers to function effectively, requiring high detection sensitivity, accurate measurements and low latency for real-time image processing and faster operations.

“Neutral atom quantum computing holds great promise for practical quantum computing through the scalability of atomic qubits compared to alternative methodologies,” said Riverlane U.K. president Timothy Balance.

“To truly unlock this scalability, we will need to work hand-in-hand with hardware providers and integrators across the quantum stack to ensure that the sub-systems are interoperable. We are thrilled to collaborate with Riverlane and Nüvü Camēras on this exciting project which will advance high-speed detection of large arrays of atomic qubits.”

The collaboration could lead to advancements in the quantum computing supply chain. Nüvü Camēras will develop cameras for next-generation quantum computers, Riverlane will enhance its quantum control systems with advanced readout capabilities, and Infleqtion will validate the necessary hardware control layer.

“We need to reach the scale where quantum computers can perform roughly a trillion reliable quantum operations – a threshold we call the 'TeraQuop',” said Riverlane CEO and founder Steve Brierley.

“Today’s quantum computers are only capable of a few hundred error-free operations. This project pushes us closer to this TeraQuop goal, but we cannot do this alone – and this is why collaboration with leaders like Infleqtion and Nüvü Camēras is vital, enabling the continued, long-term growth of quantum computing.”
