QuEra is a neutral-atom based quantum computing company located in the heart of Boston on the Charles River. The company is founded on the pioneering research by world-renowned scientists Mikhail Lukin, Vladan Vuletic, and Markus Greiner at Harvard and MIT. At QuEra, our mission is to build the most scalable quantum computers to date to tackle useful but classically intractable problems for commercially relevant applications in optimization, simulation, materials-science, pharmaceuticals, and more. To do so, we are assembling a world-class team of scientists and engineers to bring quantum computing from promise to reality.
QuEra’s technology is built on large-scale arrays of atoms laser-cooled to ~µK temperature and held in vacuum by laser tweezers. These atoms serve as the memory banks for scalable quantum computing with ultrafast, high-fidelity gates, and a clear path to millions of qubits. QuEra Computing Inc. was founded to scale this cold atom quantum computing approach.
QuEra will advance quantum computing hardware to provide large numbers of qubits and access to inherently high-connectivity gates. The natural scaling advantages provided by neutral atom and Rydberg gate technology allows industry-leading performance.
