The Communications Wave
This was followed by the invention of the laser in the 1960s, enabling exquisite control over the photon which led to laser printers, CDs and DVDs, medical instruments, advanced materials processing, and fiber-optic communications.
The Quantum Wave
Today we see the emergence of the third phase of the information age – the quantum wave. With exquisite control over individual atoms, the impact of quantum atomics will be on par with those of the transistor and the laser. It will lead to foundational changes in the way we compute, the way we communicate, and the way we sense and interact with our environment.
ColdQuanta’s Quantum Core™ technology uses ultra-cold atoms cooled to a temperature of nearly absolute zero using lasers to manipulate and control the atoms with extreme precision. We use the Quantum Core platform to manufacture components, instruments, and systems that address a broad spectrum of applications ranging from timekeeping and navigation to quantum computing, and from radiofrequency (RF) receivers to quantum communications systems.
The capabilities of Quantum Core are also crucial enabling technologies for groundbreaking quantum applications that are being developed- from real-time quantum systems like quantum global positioning systems and quantum signal processing, to highly scalable quantum computers.
