Why ColdQuanta


Enabling the Quantum Ecosystem

Why is ColdQuanta Different?

We are uniquely positioned to drive the quantum revolution because the cold-atom modality scales predictably and cost effectively. ColdQuanta develops core technology that is used in a broad spectrum of quantum applications. We believe this approach provides a significant competitive advantage at building a globally dominant company across the quantum ecosystem. And unlike other quantum companies that focus only on one area or try to fit quantum into manufacturing capabilities built for fundamentally different technologies and eras, we take a fundamentally different approach with cold atoms.


we do it differently

What we're doing

While this cold atom approach isn’t new (it won the Nobel Prize in 2001), it’s only recently that researchers have begun applying this technology outside of the lab and realizing its platform potential. Building ultra-high vacuum glass cells combined with laser optical systems that trap and manipulate atoms is our core technology. We are able to pulse the lasers to manipulate the atoms, and based on how we manipulate them, we can build a computer, a sensor, or components for quantum networks. We have 14 years of R&D history, and associated IP, in manufacturing this core technology.

What does this mean?

  • We can build bigger systems faster because we can fit over 100,000 atoms in one glass cell and turn them into quantum computing qubits whereas the competition has to manufacture each qubit one by one, often with defects that limit scaling potential. Or other companies have new scientific breakthroughs they must cross, whereas our challenge is one of engineering.
  • We can build smaller form factors because we don’t need giant dilution refrigerators to make this technology work unlike other companies using refrigeration units to cool their qubits to the temperature needed to manipulate them.
  • We are more rugged because of our system’s miniaturization capability and durability. We’ve already launched our systems into space twice. See NASA’s Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) missions.
