ORCA Computing

A company developing a scalable and modular quantum computer powered by photonics.

ORCA Computing is a company building a scalable, modular and flexible quantum computing platform powered by photonics. The company, a spin-out from the University of Oxford, was founded in 2019 by Richard Murray, Cristina Escoda, Ian Walmsley, and Josh Nunn.

ORCA’s proprietary quantum memory technology allows for the storage and synchronization of quantum operations. Rather than relying on a large number of separate components working in parallel, ORCA's memory enables a ‘repeat-until-successful’ operation.

ORCA’s photonic technology allows a fully flexible design of complete quantum architecture, this may contain multiple types of qubits, selected for different functions based on their strengths.
