Announcing the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit

Just a few months back, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella shared our vision of empowering the quantum revolution with bold investments towards a scalable end-to-end solution, revolutionary topological approach, and a global team. Today, we take the next step in this journey with the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit to help you get started with quantum development. The Microsoft Quantum Development Kit, preview available here, includes the following three key components: Fully integrated quantum-focused programming language Q# (Q-sharp): Designed ground up for quantum, Q# is the most approachable high-level programming language with a native type system for qubits, operators, and other abstractions....

Epitaxy of advanced nanowire quantum devices

Semiconductor nanowires are ideal for realizing various low-dimensional quantum devices. In particular, topological phases of matter hosting non-Abelian quasiparticles (such as anyons) can emerge when a semiconductor nanowire with strong spin-orbit coupling is brought into contact with a superconductor. To exploit the potential of non-Abelian anyons—which are key elements of topological quantum computing—fully, they need...
