(Pasqal.io) Pasqal, a French company developing quantum processors built out of arrays of neutral atoms and Muquans, an industry leader in quantum sensing, have signed a strategic partnership agreement. The purpose is to develop cutting edge laser and control solutions to push the technological boundaries of quantum computing.
This partnership is an opportunity to leverage a unique industrial and technological expertise for the design, integration and validation of advanced quantum solutions that has been applied for more than a decade to quantum gravimeters and atomic clocks. It will speed up the development of Pasqal’s processors and will bring them to an unprecedented maturity level.
Muquans will supply several key technological building blocks and a technical assistance to Pasqal, that will offer an advanced computing and simulation capability towards quantum advantage for real life applications.
Muquans is a leading company in the field of quantum sensing and advanced laser solutions. After ten years of activity in the field of quantum gravity sensors and atomic clocks, Muquans has acquired a unique industrial and technological expertise for the design, integration and validation of advanced quantum solutions based on neutral atoms.
Pasqal was founded with the vision to leverage the technology developed at Institut d’Optique in Palaiseau (France) to build quantum processors out of neutral atoms in their excited Rydberg state, ordered in large 2D arrays. Pasqal’s purpose is to bring practical quantum advantage to its customers. Pasqal is backed by Quantonation, an early stage venture capital fund focusing on Deep Physics and Quantum Technologies.
