Creating a new generation of computing devices
Quantum computing is a field of research that applies the principles of quantum physics and new directions in materials science to building a new type of computers that use quantum effects in computation. Beyond creating quantum computers, the field also includes studies of algorithms that such computers can execute.
We are exploring theoretical and experimental approaches to creating quantum computers. We employ researchers, theorists, and experimentalists from mathematics, physics, and computer science, in partnership with academic and research institutions around the globe. Our mission is to advance our understanding of both quantum computing and its applications and implementation: Our team also is dedicated to developing real-world quantum algorithms, understanding their implications, and designing comprehensive software architecture for programming such algorithms on a scalable, fault-tolerant, quantum computer.
