Nord Quantique

Nord Quantique is accelerating the path to useful quantum error correction with Boulder Opal

Nord Quantique used Boulder Opal to design a hardware-efficient QEC protocol for a superconducting system where quantum information is encoded in GKP states.

14%

increase in logical qubit lifetime

Given the complexity of the physics at play, being able to perform closed-loop optimization of a few physically motivated parameters of the quantum error correction protocol with Boulder Opal is very valuable to us.

12X

improvement in the likelihood of finding an optimal solution with Fire Opal over the default hardware execution

Optimally routing 120 convoys can take more than a month of classical computation. The Australian Army is evaluating the potential of quantum computing to provide improvements; however, it’s been difficult to validate the feasibility of a quantum solution due to hardware noise. With Fire Opal, an algorithmic enhancement software, we are able to achieve results on quantum computers that build confidence in our quantum roadmap.

8X

Better performance in terms of Total Variational Distance (TVD), which measures the deviation from perfect data loading.

As we develop novel techniques to solve some of the quantum industry’s hardest challenges, Fire Opal is an essential tool to reduce the impact of hardware noise and demonstrate successful results with deeper and wider circuits.

Reduction of quantum compute cost

We wanted to challenge Fire Opal’s capabilities by running a quite complex, unoptimized circuit. The results were extremely promising. The only comparable results we’ve seen have come from hardware that is currently too expensive to run extensive tests on.
