MAKING QUANTUM hardware AVAILABLE TO ALL

QuantWare launched in July 2021 with the singular ambition to accelerate the usefulness of the quantum computer, while democratizing hardware and expanding the field.

QuantWare works on the quickest path to useful quantum computation, based on a foundation of world-class expertise in scaling up superconducting QPUs.

Achieving useful quantum computation is a huge challenge, and one we cannot do alone. We are a collaborative company working with the best-in-class companies and experts on complementary solutions. We are always on the lookout for new partnerships.

Scientific Advisors

QuantWare is guided by thought leaders in the Quantum Computing industry

Charles M. Marcus

Professor

Professor Charlie Marcus is a leading researcher in the Quantum field. During his career he has been a professor at Stanford and Harvard and Director of the Microsoft Quantum Lab in Copenhagen. He was the first non-Dane to be awarded the H.C. Ørsted Gold Medal as a recognition of his outstanding contributions to physics. He is currently a Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute, where he founded the Center for Quantum Devices.

“To unlock the full potential of quantum computing, we need to democratise the technology. Large quantum processors shouldn't be exclusively operated by a few large organisations. QuantWare has a real shot at changing this situation. Their scalable design seems to me to be the most promising available, and I believe it will disrupt the Quantum Computing industry and research.”

Rami Barends

Professor

Prof. Barends joined QuantWare as one of its first angel investors. He is an expert on superconducting qubits, and was one of the lead researchers at Google during the demonstration of beyond-classical computing. He obtained his PhD at Delft University of Technology and joined the team at UC Santa Barbara prior to merging with Google. He is currently director of the new Peter Grünberg Institute for Functional Quantum Systems at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

"Quantum computing is at the verge of going from an exploratory phase to one where addressing real-world problems could become a reality. With companies like QuantWare, we can build the ecosystem that enables the necessary research and technology development, right here in Europe."
