Creation and control of silicon quantum entanglement

The silicon tipping point has arrived

Over the past 50 years, quantum behaviours have become better understood, and harnessing those quantum behaviours has moved from impossible through theoretical to inevitable.

Industry analysts comment that "quantum computing is a candidate for a precipitous breakthrough that may come at any time."

Photonic's silicon-based quantum technologies bring that precipitous breakthrough within sight – addressing core questions quantum innovators have been working to answer for decades.

At Photonic, we’re turning "what if" into "now". Photonic is removing traditional barriers to entry in the world of quantum by designing and manufacturing quantum technologies in silicon, the same material that powered the most disruptive technical revolutions of the past half-century.

Silicon remains the most compelling solution to the hardest technical challenges in quantum advancement. Learn why silicon always wins.

Silicon photonic spin qubits are the future

Our high-quality, photonic silicon spin qubits are:


These critical attributes are what will allow silicon spin qubits to power solutions to computational problems that have proven intractable to classical computing. Quantum algorithm companies serving industries ranging from cybersecurity to climate modelling to precision medicine have been waiting for a platform to deliver, so they can roll out their algorithms. Photonic is rounding the corner.

We're developing the platform. Are you developing the applications?
If you're developing quantum algorithms to  solve some of the world's biggest challenges,
we want to hear from you.
