PASQAL, the global leader in quantum computing with neutral atoms, has announced plans to build a state-of-the-art quantum processing factory in Sherbrooke, Quebec.
The factory, located at DistriQ – Quantum Innovation Zone, will focus on producing cutting-edge hardware for the North American market, accelerating the adoption of neutral atoms quantum computing in the region.
By leveraging their quantum technology, which employs highly focused lasers known as “optical tweezers” to manipulate and trap individual neutral atoms, PASQAL aims to create 1D and 2D arrays of qubits. Their next-generation devices are expected to deliver a quantum computing power of 1,000 qubits by 2024.
Customers such as BMW, BASF, and Johnson & Johnson have already benefited from PASQAL’s technology.
