New open source tool expands access to lab-based quantum prototypes: Cloud Queue for Quantum Devices

Experimental physicists are vital to the future of quantum computing, sensing, and networking, laying the groundwork for new types of devices and enhancing the performance of existing technology. Their work, like all open science, can be accelerated through collaboration, but providing access to prototype hardware is challenging. The Cloud Queue for Quantum Devices project provides […]

A microwave package encloses the quantum processor. The packaging is designed to shield the qubits from environmental noise while enabling communication with the control system.

AWS releases open-source software Palace for cloud-based electromagnetics simulations of quantum computing hardware

Today, we are introducing Palace, for PArallel, LArge-scale Computational Electromagnetics, a parallel finite element code for full-wave electromagnetics simulations. Palace is used at the AWS Center for Quantum Computing to perform large-scale 3D simulations of complex electromagnetics models and enable the design of quantum computing hardware. We developed it with support for the scalability and […]

Bernoulli line and the Bloch sphere: visualizing probability and quantum states

Introduction In recent years, quantum computers have evolved from laboratory experiments available to only a handful of scientists, to research devices that are accessible worldwide through cloud services like Amazon Braket. The impact of cloud access to quantum computers is not limited to laboratory scientists and developers as it allows educators to bring these devices […]

Sprinternships with Break Through Tech Chicago and the Amazon Braket quantum computing team

During May 2022, Amazon Web Services hosted its first cohort of students participating in Break Through Tech Chicago’s annual Sprinternship. This is a micro-internship program designed to transform the career trajectories of women (cisgender and transgender) and nonbinary individuals. The program offers these students foundational work experience that prepares them for the tech workforce. Break […]
