Project Description

Universal Quantum will be a full stack quantum computing company with a mission to develop practical commercial large scale quantum computers based on trapped ions along with relevant application and software solutions”.

This startups will exploit ideas outlined in a 'Blueprint for a microwave trapped ion quantum computer' as published in Science Advances (Lekitsch et al. Sci. Adv. 2017:3:e1601540).

Professor Winfried Hensinger is the Director of the Sussex University Centre for Quantum Technologies, and a lead researcher within the UK's NQIT hub.
