To control more qubits there needs to be a new way of thinking about quantum measurement systems, starting with the cryogenic system itself. For this, Bluefors is introducing a new cryogenic platform, called KIDE [k ɪ d ɛ]. KIDE will play an important role for future research and development of quantum computing. KIDE enables unprecedented expandability and access to meet the requirements of next level quantum computing, and it will enable more cooling power and flexibility than any ultra low temperature measurement system that has come before.
“Even when we create a larger platform, we maintain the same user accessibility and ease of use as with a smaller system. This is crucial when advanced quantum hardware scales-up,” says David Gunnarsson, CTO, Bluefors. ”Controlling more qubits than ever motivates a new way of thinking about quantum measurement systems, starting with the cryogenic system itself.”
To summarize, Bluefors presents KIDE as the platform that will meet the new requirements for cryogenics. The hexagonal geometry of the platform is reflecting a snow crystal — “kide” in Finnish. In Finnish, “kide”means snow crystal, which represents the hexagonal crystal-like geometry of the platform.
