Researchers now have access to the first free high-performance quantum emulation services
Great news from HQI France who has has a new resource available for the quantum community. Perceval, our photonic quantum simulation and programming software suite, is now available on GENCI’s Joliot-Curie supercomputer, hosted at CEA’s TGCC! Academic and industrial researchers can now benefit from the first high-performance quantum emulation services.
Perceval is a suite of open-source tools for simulating and/or programming photonic quantum devices. It offers an intuitive interface that allows users to build complex photonic circuits with ease.
The purpose of this release is twofold: it provides the quantum community with access to a high-quality toolset for quantum simulation, while al
Pascale Senellart among the new members of ‘The Academy of Sciences’
Pascale Senellart has just been elected as a member of the french ‘Academy of Sciences’ for the section of Science Applications along with 17 more new members.
The Academy adapts to the fast pace of scientific progress by regularly electing new members. It thus ensures the broadest possible coverage of all scientific fields, including scientific fields, including the most emerging ones, and nourishes the richness of the debates and work within its groups and committees.
The Academy currently has 286 members, 120 foreign associates and 63 correspondents. The new members are elected by the whole Academy, on proposal of the different sections.
QuaCS and Quandela: highlighting the potential of quantum algorithms
QuaCS, an Inria project team specialising in quantum computing, and Quandela, a pioneering start-up in the development of photonic quantum computers, have taken the decision to bring their complementary skill sets together to form a partnership. So far, this partnership has been able to develop an algorithm for simulating the behaviour of photons, as well as a graphical language for optimising photonic circuits.
LOQCathon 2022: Challenge UnLOQCed!
3 days, 12 teams, 60+ participants from more than 10 countries across Europe, 5 projects, 3 prize team winners.
At the Crossroads of Physics and Software, LOQCathon was the first interdisciplinary Quantum Hackathon on Linear Optical Quantum Computation with the software platform Perceval, powered by Quandela with a partnership of QICS (Quantum Information Center Sorbonne) and with a support of LIP6 – CNRS.

100 French tech personalities who have marked 2022 according to FRENCHWEB.FR
Pascale Senellart, Cofounder and CSO of Quandela, has been named one of the 100 French tech personalities who have marked 2022 according to FRENCHWEB.FR
During the past months, the FRENCHWEB.FR team had the chance to meet entrepreneurs, researchers, politicians, decision-makers, public actors, and at the end of the year, they highlight 100 personalities who have particularly marked or whose initiatives have been reported to them.
We are proud of Pascale and we hope to continue to see more women in tech!
Sigma Reply becomes a Quandela certified partner
Quandela and Sigma Reply are delighted to announce that Sigma Reply will become Quandela’s first official certified partner.
With expertise in Quantum Computing developed since 2018 and after having reviewed Quandela full stack offering, Sigma Reply chooses to become a Certified Consulting Partner of Quandela, the leading European photonic quantum computer company. Sigma Reply will train and certify its application engineers to Quandela’s simulator Perceval and photonic processors MosaiQ, and will have a preview access to Quandela’s Cloud QPU service.
Photonic Quantum Computing For Polymer Classification Whitepaper
Co-authored by Alysophil and Quandela, this new whitepaper explores a chemically-determined complexity for real polymer data.
Pack Quantique Île-de-France Region
Quandela, the Borelli Center of the École Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay and Thales worked together for this 9th project in the framework of the Pack-Quantique of the Île-de-France Region
The Pack-Quantique, created in 2020, and carried in partnership with TERATEC and GENCI, connects key stakeholders in the ecosystem to foster the development of quantum computing.
This new project aims to explore the benefit of quantum computing in drone air traffic management and is yet another great example of multi-stakeholder collaboration.
The first European quantum computer in the cloud, developed by Quandela
Quandela launches the first European online service giving access to its quantum computers assembled and hosted in its Massy premises. Scientists, industry players, and companies can thus access several photonic processors for calculations of up to 5 photonic qubits. Quandela is aiming for 12 qubits available online by the end of 2023, each additional photonic qubit doubling the computing power of the quantum computer.
This project has been supported by the “Programme d’investissement d’avenir” operated by Bpifrance
Quandela and EDF work together to use photonic quantum computing to simulate hydroelectric dam structures
Quandela and leading French energy company EDF have signed a partnership agreement to study the contribution of photonic computing to numerical simulations of hydroelectric dam deformation. The use of this breakthrough technology could increase the accuracy of the simulations, speed up the calculations and reduce the energy consumption of the same calculations. In the longer term, the ambition is to generalize the simulation models to other types of industrial applications and to extend photonic calculation to Machine Learning used in particular in consumption forecasting.
Quandela and ONERA join forces to study applications of photonic quantum computing to aerospace
Quandela has joined forces with ONERA and MBDA as part of the Ile-de-France Region project: Quantum Advantage for Aircraft Engine Design (AQCMA). AQCMA will last 18 months, aiming to reduce simulation time of aircraft combustion chambers by exploiting quantum machine learning. This is a new opportunity for Quandela to use its technology for concrete industrial applications.
Quandela and EIC Accelerator
We’re thrilled to announce that Quandela has been selected by European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) as one of the fortunate few projects to be offered a grant! The EIC will fund Quandela’s industrialisation of the fabrication of optical quantum computers. This is an honour for us, and moreover a great signal as it shows that the European Union is accelerating investments in breakthrough technologies in order to match foreign competition. Quantum computing has the potential to change every aspect of our everyday life and recent news we have shared here prove that these are well on the way!
Quandela is teaming up with CEA-Leti to develop a very high-performance photonic chip
Quandela has signed a partnership with the Electronics and Information Technology Laboratory of the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA-Leti) to produce a 100% French high-performance photonic chip. As part of this partnership, CEA-Leti is making its expertise and manufacturing platform available to Quandela. The first chips will be available in early 2023.
The latest release of Perceval introduces connectors
This release introduces connectors that open up the world of photonic processing to third party frameworks tailored for gate-based qubit quantum processing (e.g. Qiskit). The release also incorporates some of the latest advances in photonic quantum computing, including the LOv-calculus, a graphical rewriting tool that in particular enables automated simplification of photonic quantum circuits.
The interns shared some of their thoughts on their experience working at the company. The entire team at Quandela is dedicated to make sure that every single one of our interns are happy, excited and well prepared for the future.
They are the future of our industry, and we’re so grateful for their hard work and dedication.
Quandela: Making of a bright adventure!
We’re so excited to share with you, our incredible community, what we have in the works for this Autumn. This is a making of video for the upcoming announcement, where we’ll be talking about our future goals, what we’ve been up to and how excited we are to grow.
