Time Binning Method for Nonpulsed Sources Characterization With a Superconducting Photon Number Resolving Detector

Photon number resolving detectors find space in many fields, such as quantum optics, boson sampling, and fluorescence spectroscopy. In particular, the reconstruction of the input photon distribution is essential in quantum communications to detect photon-number-splitting attacks. In this work, we discuss the operation configurations of a photon number resolving detector based on superconducting nanostrips at […]

Improving Urban Traffic Mobility via a Versatile Quantum Annealing Model

The growth of cities and the resulting increase in vehicular traffic pose significant challenges to the environment and citizens’ quality of life. To address these challenges, a new algorithm has been proposed that leverages the quantum annealing paradigm and D-wave’s machines to optimize the control of traffic lights in cities. The algorithm considers traffic information […]

Development of an Undergraduate Quantum Engineering Degree

Quantum computing, communications, sensing, and simulations are radically transformative technologies, with great potential to impact industries and economies. Worldwide, national governments, industries, and universities are moving to create a new class of workforce—the Quantum Engineers. Demand for such engineers is predicted to be in the tens of thousands within a five-year timescale, far exceeding the […]
