We are QuEra

QuEra Computing is the leader in commercializing quantum computers using neutral atoms, which is widely recognized as a highly promising quantum modality. Based in Boston and built on pioneering research from nearby Harvard University and MIT, QuEra operates the world’s largest publicly accessible quantum computer, available over a major public cloud and for on-premises delivery. QuEra is developing large-scale, fault-tolerant quantum computers to tackle classically intractable problems, becoming the partner of choice in the quantum field. Simply put, QuEra is the best way to quantum.

Quantum computing is the future

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 is paving the way

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 Processor available on Amazon Braket.

On the road to quantum advantage

QuEra is already leading the charge for the world’s next breakthrough: demonstration of significant quantum advantage for commercially relevant applications. QuEra's world-class team of engineers, software and application experts, coupled with our industry partners and academic collaborators, are all dedicated to turning the potential of quantum computing into reality. This is just the beginning.
