Quantum computing firm Alice & Bob this week announced the immediate availability of its Boson 4 single cat-qubit chip series through the cloud via Google Marketplace. 

“When my co-founder and I started Alice & Bob, many thought cat qubits would never be more than a lab concept. We are now the first company to make a cat qubit chip available for everyone to use,” said Théau Peronnin, CEO and co-founder of Alice & Bob. “We are convinced Boson 4 will spark interest among researchers and we are committed to continuously extending the range of experiments which can be performed with it.”

“It’s great to see continued advancement in the field. Protecting quantum information from one of the two errors that corrupt it is a promising path to making a robust quantum computer,” said Hartmut Neven, VP of engineering at Google. “The cat qubit is an interesting technology to have available for experimentation.”
