QuEra Doubles Boston Headquarters, Rapidly Expanding Team to Support Growing Demand for On-Premise Quantum Computers

QuEra Doubles Boston Headquarters, Rapidly Expanding Team to Support Growing Demand for On-Premise Quantum Computers BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, May 14, 2024 – QuEra Computing, a global leader in neutral-atom quantum computing technology, today announced it added another building and doubled its space to address the explosive growth of its business and to meet the growing demand for its quantum computers in the United States, Europe, and Asia. QuEra’s locations at 1284 and 1380 Soldiers Field Rd in Boston are state-of-the-art facilities that will support the research, development, and production of multiple quantum computers and provide the office space for the growing QuEra team required to optimally manage QuEra’s expanding customer base. In the first three months of 2024, QuEra signed deals with the UK’s National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC) and Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) to deliver the most advanced quantum computers on the market and continues to work on additional on-premises deals. QuEra has achieved a number of significant milestones that have increased the capabilities of its quantum computers, accelerating customer interest usage. These advancements include: QuEra’s flagship 256-qubit Aquila system, available globally on a major cloud platform, has expanded its public availability from 10 to over 100 hours per week. Both commercial and academic customers are utilizing this increased availability, leading to a number of breakthroughs. QuEra has increased its team to over 50 highly skilled scientists and engineers and added several experienced and accomplished executives to its management team, positioning itself for accelerated growth and innovation. In December 2023, QuEra announced that in research led by Harvard University, it performed complex, error-corrected quantum algorithms on 48 logical qubits, a major breakthrough for the quantum industry. This was followed by an ambitious but realistic roadmap to deliver a series of error-corrected quantum computers in 2024 through 2026. The new headquarters represents a doubling of size relative to QuEra’s current location and will accommodate further growth and expansion over the next few years. The office is ideally located near MIT and Harvard University, two key partners of QuEra that have collaborated on important research and development since the company was founded by Harvard and MIT physicists who have conducted pioneering research in quantum computing. “We are fortunate to call Boston our corporate home. The close proximity to the world-class labs of Harvard and MIT, and the outstanding local talent, are both recipes for success,” said Alex Keesling, CEO of QuEra. “With our rapid expansion, we are looking to add other outstanding team players to our team.” QuEra’s neutral atom-based quantum computers feature a unique combination of system size, coherence, and processing modes. Neutral atom computers are a highly promising quantum modality, offering a clear path to large-scale, fault-tolerant computers. Since November 2022, QuEra’s first-generation, neutral-atom quantum computers have been available for public use on a large public cloud service and remain the only neutral-atom platform that is publicly accessible. QuEra leads the neutral atom market, offering dynamic qubit manipulation (qubit shuttling), enabling flexible and efficient quantum computations.
