NPL’s quantum capabilities for industry

Validation of high-performance cryogenic electronic devices

Quantum precise voltage validation for electronic devices

The ambition to utilise electronic devices operating below a few Kelvin degrees, for quantum computing read-out systems and interfaces, is raising the demand for new, more advanced measurement methods. Precisely characterised components will be needed for the successful read/write of multiple qubits in quantum computing, as well as other low temperature applications.  

NPL is one of only a few places in the world capable of generating quantum-accurate voltage waveforms in cryogenic environments. This early-stage capability would be of interest to organisations working with low-temperature analogue-to-digital converters and digital-to-analogue converters. For instance, for solid state qubits and semiconductors, as well as a range of other cryogenic devices under development including amplifiers and multiplexers.
