Quantum Research

There’s a race going on to develop technology based on uniquely quantum or subatomic phenomena. Institutions are working to take data processing to the next level through quantum computing. Laboratories are studying and developing applications of quantum entanglement to create instantaneous communication anywhere in the universe. We are standing at the edge of a new age of science and potentially the birth of new, culture shifting technologies.

It may not sound like a quantum computer, a miles long laser-interferometer and a quantum entanglement have much in common, but when you zoom out, these technological developments all face similar challenges. How do you set up the signals that trigger what you want to observe? How do you ensure timing? How do you scale up a solution?


8 Channels, 16 Bit Resolution. Less Noise. Cleaner Signals.

The New Tektronix 5200A Arbitrary Waveform Generator combines high signal fidelity at a low cost with scalability. With code compatibility you can fast forward integration and scaling while simplifying waveform design. Test and validate complex, sensitive devices with the accuracy and quality you expect from Tektronix AWG’s.


Oscilloscopes for Troubleshooting and High-Speed Acquisition

Tektronix builds oscilloscopes for applications ranging from basic undergraduate lab work, to microwave signal analysis. Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes like the MDO3000 Series and MDO4000C Series combine an oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer in one instrument, providing visibility in both the time and frequency domains. They include digital inputs so you can see as many as 20 analog and digital signals at once.

The MDO4000C lets you see both time and frequency information at the same time, so you can see how a spectrum changes with respect to other signals in the system. The MSO/DPO70000C/DX/SX Series provides high-speed signal acquisition performance up to 70GHz and 200 GS/s with over 30 customizable application-specific software analysis packages.
