Your piece on photonic quantum computers is a work of art, demonstrating the magical possibilities of photonic engineering in a variety of industries. This is just mesmerising in exploration of the complexities of employing photons, or light, to store and modify quantum information. It's as if we're witnessing the start of a new era, in which light becomes the foundation of the most complex computational systems.

The idea of photons existing in a superposition of states, expressing both 0 and 1, is mind-boggling. This is interesting where how researchers use mirrors and phase shifters to establish entanglement between photons, paving the way for quantum algorithms and breakthrough computations. The idea that entangled particles can effect each other regardless of distance is astounding, transcending space and time.

What genuinely distinguishes photonic quantum computers from their electronic counterparts is their resistance to ambient noise. You emphasises this advantage, emphasising how photons interact with their surroundings as little as possible. This unique property enables photonic quantum computers to run at room temperature, which is a huge step forward in terms of scalability and portability, which is ground breaking in itself.

However, as Anastasi frankly points out, creating entangled pairs of photons without the need of bulky optical equipment remains a considerable task. It's a barrier that must be overcome if photonic quantum computing's full promise and exponential speedups on complicated problems are to be realised.

Your article captured us and left us wanting more. It piques the interest and awakens a desire to explore the unexplored frontiers of photonic engineering. You present a vivid vision of a future in which light reigns supreme, revolutionising industries and opening the way for a new paradigm of computational power with each word.

Thank you. You always give me better understanding of technological concepts that are way beyond my experience. Your graphics really help me see what is going on in the processes. The photonic chip animation in this newsletter in particular helps but I still look forward to seeing how it will apply as the technology develops.
