    We have developed a radically new paradigm for dark matter detection: using an array of quantum impulse sensors to detect the tiny gravitational forces caused by passing dark matter particles.

    Scaling up NISQ-era quantum computers from individual qubits is a challenging control problem. Limitations arise due to imperfect fabrications leading to variability across devices as well as because most techniques for qubit initialization are semi-automated or rely on human heuristics.

    Measuring the quantum nature of the gravitational field is a dream going back to the earliest days of relativity and quantum mechanics.

    In the near future, quantum computers at their early development stages will likely be available only at a few leading research facilities. Others who wish to access the quantum computers may still do so via delegated quantum computation schemes.

    Light is a paradigmatic quantum field, with individual excitations -- photons -- that are the most accessible massless particles known. However, their lack of mass and extremely weak interactions means that typically the thermal description of light is that of blackbody radiation.
