Hamamatsu Corporation
Quantum computers hold the potential to address complex problems in fields such as material science, quantum chemistry, finance, and pharmaceuticals. How can we realize this promise, and what are the advantages and challenges of different approaches?

This webinar will discuss several qubit modalities that are currently being pursued by industry and academia for quantum computing applications. These modalities include superconducting qubits, silicon quantum dots, trapped ions, neutral atoms, photonic qubits, nitrogen vacancy centers, and topological qubits. In addition, the presenter will discuss the promise and challenges of engineering future quantum machines.

This webinar is the second presentation in Hamamatsu's Quantum Technologies Series. To view the other sessions in this series, visit the links below:
