Traditional qubits are encoded in discrete two-level systems. Instead, we can encode quantum information in complex multiphoton states of harmonic oscillators. By selecting multiphoton states with particular symmetries, we can protect these bosonic qubits against noise and decoherence.
We are developing a new generation of bosonic qubits using novel geometry to create a superconducting cavity with tens of milliseconds of coherence time.
Stay tuned for updates!
