Pasqal

A company building programmable quantum simulators and quantum computers made of 2D and 3D arrays of neutral atoms.

Pasqal is a company building programmable quantum simulators and quantum computers made of 2D and 3D arrays of neutral atoms. Pasqal was founded in 2019 by CEO Georges-Olivier Reymond . The company is based in Palaiseau, France, south of Paris. In 2019, Pasqal closed a first investment round with Quantonation an early-stage venture fund based in Paris with a focus on emerging quantum technologies.

Antoine Browaeys and Thierry Lahaye, Pasqals Chief Science Officer and Chief Qubits Officer respectively, began building programmable quantum simulators at the Institut d’Optique (IOGS, CNRS) in 2011. These simulators are made of neutral atom arrays designed to model many-body problems that are not solvable using classical computation.

Pasqal builds on this research to engineer lasers, vacuum systems, and detection systems, for the manufacture of quantum information processors.
