ColdQuanta joins the IBM Quantum network, bringing cold
Boulder, Colorado, May 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – ColdQuanta, the leader in Cold Atom Quantum technology, today announced its membership in the IBM Quantum Network. In addition to joining the network, ColdQuanta will also integrate with Qiskit, an open source software development kit (SDK) for working with quantum computers developed by IBM. ColdQuanta customers can optimize their programs for the revolutionary ColdQuanta Quantum Computer (codenamed “Hilbert”), a 100-qubit quantum computer to be released later this year. Together, companies will pursue joint development opportunities with the aim of accelerating the adoption of quantum technologies.
ColdQuanta is at the forefront of the rapidly growing quantum industry, providing Cold Atom quantum technology for a wide range of quantum solutions in computing, sensing and networking. The company’s groundbreaking Cold Atom Quantum technology, which cools atoms down to millionths of a degree above absolute zero using lasers, is the basis for these applications. ColdQuanta’s next 100-qubit quantum computer will be one of the largest and most scalable in the world when it launches in the second half of 2021.
“We believe that close collaboration across the quantum ecosystem will contribute to significant technical advancements that will have a huge impact on the way we live and work,” said Dan Caruso, executive chairman of ColdQuanta. “Joining the IBM Quantum Network and our integration with Qiskit will enable our commercial and government customers to accelerate their quantum computing initiatives and reap the many benefits of quantum.”
The IBM Quantum Network is a global community of more than 140 Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, academic institutions and research laboratories working to advance quantum computing and explore practical applications. Together, network and IBM Quantum team members research and explore how quantum computing will help a variety of industries and disciplines, including finance, energy, chemistry, and materials science, among others.
“We welcome ColdQuanta to our growing network of customers and partners who strive to accelerate commercial adoption of quantum computing,” said Aparna Prabhakar, vice president, IBM Quantum Partner Ecosystem. industries, a key step towards the growth of the quantum computing community and the advancement of technology. “

ColdQuanta is the leader in Cold Atom quantum technology, the most scalable, versatile and commercially viable area of quantum. ColdQuanta is dedicated to making quantum a reality through the development of a cloud-based quantum computer and precision sensing and networking solutions. Supported by years of research and development, ColdQuanta’s story began in 1924 with the discovery of Bose Einstein’s condensate (BEC) – also known as the 5th form of matter – and 70 years later it s ‘came to fruition when it was first synthesized at the University of Colorado at Boulder in conjunction with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). ColdQuanta was spawned by this BEC breakthrough. Today, ColdQuanta works with its global clients, which include large commercial and defense companies; the US Department of Defense; national laboratories managed by the Department of Energy, NASA and NIST; large universities; and quantum-focused technology companies, to advance products and services developed with Cold Atom Quantum technology. ColdQuanta is based in Boulder, CO with offices in Madison, Wisconsin and Oxford, UK. Learn more at www.coldquanta.com.
