Oxford Instruments NanoScience Gains Momentum in Quantum Computing

Oxford Instruments NanoScience is today announcing its latest innovation in Cryofree® dilution refrigerator technology for quantum computing scale up, the ProteoxLX, as well as new quantum computing customer collaborations worldwide.

Since the launch of Proteox at APS Physics last year, Oxford Instruments has announced its partnership with the University of Glasgow as well as with Rigetti and start-up, Oxford Quantum Circuits. Oxford Instruments NanoScience has also secured significant wins outside of Europe more recently, with Proteox selected by SpinQ Technology Ltd. in China.

NanoScience is committed to driving leadership and innovation to support the development and commercialization of quantum computing around the world. And today’s announcement is testament to this -- the momentum that we’ve built over the past twelve months will bring the promise of quantum computing to major industries such as the pharmaceutical sector, bringing drugs to market more quickly.

About the ProteoxLX

Optimized for Quantum computing, the ProteoxLX is part of the Oxford Instruments family of next-generation dilution refrigerators which all share the same modular layout to provide cross-compatibility and added flexibility for cryogenic installations. The LX system can maximize qubit counts with large sample space and ample coaxial wiring capacity, low vibration features for reduced noise and support of long qubit coherence times, and full integration of signal conditioning components.

The LX also offers two fully customizable Secondary Inserts for an optimized layout of cold electronics and high-capacity input and output lines, fully compatible and interchangeable across the Proteox family. Finally, the ProteoxLX offers the greatest cooling power with 25 µW cooling power available at 20 mK, low base temperature at < 7 mK, and twin pulse tubes providing up to 4.0 W cooling power at 4 K.
