BOULDER, Colo., July 13, 2022 — ColdQuanta today announced significant momentum for the first half of 2022 highlighted by business growth, technical milestones, leadership expansion and more. These accomplishments further demonstrate the company’s commitment to driving maturation of its products and its ability to leverage game-changing talent and experience.
“The momentum in which we entered the New Year, with a 140% in bookings increase and a nearly doubling of our headcount, has positioned ColdQuanta for a strong year,” said Scott Faris, ColdQuanta CEO. “ColdQuanta continues to demonstrate its industry leadership by attracting esteemed quantum experts, attaining notable product milestones, and garnering third party endorsements. These achievements are important building blocks in our effort to address some of today’s most pressing challenges with quantum technologies.”
Noteworthy milestones over the last six months include:
- Won 2022 Prism Award, Quantum from SPIE Photonics West and Photonics Media for Albert, ColdQuanta’s quantum matter platform. Albert beta launched in April at the Laser World of Photonics Conference in Munich. Whether developing quantum sensor technology, researching fundamental science, or empowering the next generation of the quantum workforce, Albert kickstarts discovery and reduces development costs by orders of magnitude.
- Won 2022 Best of Sensors Award for Maxwell, a high performance test and calibration instrument.
- First in the world in executing algorithms on a cold atom quantum computer shared in the April issue of Nature.
- Commercial launch of the world’s first cold atom quantum computer in beta, Hilbert, which demonstrates the power and scalability of atomic qubits and the promise to transform the quantum computing landscape.
