Alpine Quantum Technologies

Alpine Quantum Technologies

A quantum computing company using ion trap technology to develop commercial quantum computers.

Alpine Quantum Technologies is a quantum computing company formed by three physicists from University of Innsbruck and the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

The company’s technology involves the use electric fields to trap single charged atoms inside vacuum chambers. Each ion represents a quantum bit or qubit, which are measured by precisely timed laser pulses. Achievements by the company include scalable Shor algorithm, topologically encoded quantum error correction, quantum chemistry calculations and world record in 14-particle entanglement.

Alpine Quantum Technologies is a company that looks to realize the first general-purpose quantum computer. The company looks to be a leader in quantum information processing from performance and scalability to wide-range applicability. The company looks to use ion-trap quantum computers as they are at the forefront of technology development. Using electric fields, single-charged atoms are trapped inside vacuum chambers, each ion represents a quantum bit (qubit). Then each qubit is manipulated and measured by precisely timed laser pulses.
