Quantum computing is a cutting-edge technology redefining the limits of information processing. This transformation is powered by hardware whose smallest parts – quantum bits, or “qubits” – obey the laws of quantum mechanics, introducing innate probability and parallelism to computer programs. This impacts the speed of calculations, quality of solutions, and energy consumption needed to address some of today’s hardest problems. Finally, it opens the doors for new opportunities, sparking the search for novel problems and solutions that will shape the future needs of humankind. We share a single-minded commitment to extract practical use out of these emergent quantum devices.
QuEra’s technology is built on large-scale arrays of atoms, laser-cooled to microkelvin temperatures and held in vacuum by movable laser tweezers. These atoms serve as the memory banks for scalable quantum computing with ultrafast, high-fidelity gates, and a clear technology roadmap to millions of qubits. Users can access this technology today on the cloud, running quantum algorithms of their own design on our continuously maintained hardware using QuEra’s first-generation machine, Aquila, a 256-qubit Quantum Processer available on Amazon Braket.
This is just the beginning. QuEra is already leading a charge for the world’s next breakthrough: demonstration of significant quantum advantage for commercially relevant applications. QuEra’s world-class team of leading scientists in engineering, software and applications, industry partners, and academic collaborators remain focused on bringing quantum computing from promise to reality.
