Today, we provide products that enable quantum computers and quantum lab environments. Soon we will offer high precision clocks and cloud-based quantum computing. In parallel, we are collaborating with our customers to develop prototypes for quantum positioning systems, quantum radio frequency receivers, and quantum memory devices.
The combination of our rich history, deep expertise, and laser focus positions us as the leader in Cold Atom Quantum Technology.
When atoms are cooled to a few millionths of a degree above absolute zero, they take on quantum properties. Lasers are used to arrange the atoms, hold them in place, run computations on them, and read out the results. Quantum calculations, communications, and sensing are the result.
Satyendra Bose and Albert Einstein discovered the fifth form of matter—the Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC). Dr. Eric Cornell and Dr. Carl Wieman won a Nobel Prize for creating the first BEC in a collaboration between CU Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Their colleague, Dr. Dana Anderson, co-founded ColdQuanta, which is using the fifth form of matter as the foundation for its Cold Atom Quantum Technology.
Just like the Internet, Quantum will be pervasive across all connected and computational devices. Autonomous vehicles, spacecraft, robotics, augmented reality, biopharma, and the environment are among the broad spectrum of capabilities that will be dramatically improved.
