Project Description

Trapped ion quantum devices pioneered and lead quantum information processing: from performance and scalability to wide-range applicability.
Apply AQT quantum solutions to solve your problems.

The founders of AQT have been the first persons to realize a controlled-NOT gate operation – the building block for general-purpose quantum computers. Since then, ion-trap quantum computers are at the forefront of quantum technology development: from atomic clocks to quantum simulators, to universal quantum computers.
