The World Economic Forum includes AQT in its list of Technology Pioneers 2020

The quantum computer start-up Alpine Quantum Technologies (AQT) was founded by the quantum physicists Rainer Blatt, Peter Zoller and Thomas Monz. The spin-off of the University of Innsbruck and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences aims to make a commercial quantum computer available on the marketplace by 2022.

The Tyrolean scientists currently have a programmable ion-trap quantum computer featuring 20 quantum bits at its disposal. Quantum bits serve as the fundamental information unit of quantum computers. Individual atoms held in ion traps which can be manipulated with lasers are considered to comprise a promising basic concept for realising practical quantum bits. AQT Managing Director Thomas Monz considers the honour bestowed by the World Economic Forum to be "a confirmation that our ion trap technology is a leading candidate for a future quantum computer which can solve major real-world problems. Our technology will support the development of new medicines or materials with planned properties."

Preventing quantum computers from crashing

Qubits, the carriers of quantum information, are prone to errors induced by undesired environmental interactions. These errors accumulate during a quantum computation and correcting them is thus a key requirement for a reliable use of quantum computers.

Innovations from Vienna are a Growth Driver

Multinational companies invest € 2 billion in research in Austria every year. Many of the subsidiaries based in Austria carry out research and development activities in the Alpine Republic. Our company also does so. Ottobock has been operating in Austria for more than 50 years.
