Building scalable quantum machines to make impossible problems simple.
Exploring applications that will change the world
Quantum computers have the potential to solve both existing computational problems much faster and problems that are beyond the capabilities of today’s most powerful supercomputers.
Enabling scientific discoveries across disciplines: physics, materials science, chemistry
Simulating complex systems: fundamental particle interactions, advanced materials, chemical compounds
Improving optimization for logistics, networks, telecommunications, finance
Enhancing machine learning algorithms and data processing algorithms
Our Quantum Machines
QuEra's quantum machines utilize nature's perfect qubits based on Rydberg atoms — fast, high quality gates, and scalability to millions of qubits.
Development machines (256-512 qubit) with full-stack software allowing quantum simulation and prototyping various algorithms accessible mid 2022.
Nature’s perfect qubits
Atoms are nature's perfect qubits, all identical to one another without even the possibility of defects. We leverage these properties to store and process quantum information.
Using our advanced techniques of atom-by-atom assembly, Rydberg atoms can be arranged in large 1D, 2D, or 3D arrays and addressed individually with high precision, promising very high scalability.
High-quality multi-qubit gates
Rydberg atoms interact on-demand - when illuminated with laser light, they take on enormous size and interact over long distances, but left in the dark, they keep to themselves.
Entering a nonsimulatable regime
Our machine is entering a nonsimulatable regime for practical problems, such as scientific simulation and optimization. In such regimes, classical supercomputers are not adequate for solving problems.
Efficient error correction
Our systems allow for creating states of qubits that are protected from errors. This increases the computational power of our machines significantly.
Hardware-efficient implementation of multi-qubit gates
Using long-ranged interactions between atomic qubits, our machine can efficiently implement multi-qubit gates. Reducing the overhead in decomposing multi-qubit gates into a sequence of singe-qubit and two-qubit operations increases the quality of results. This provides an opportunity for a new class of algorithms.
