AQT bridges the quantum information science and technology domain in superconducting quantum circuits from fundamental science and quantum algorithms beyond single, academic, proof of concept demonstrations to a broad range of informative and impactful calculations.
AQT leverages research synergies and a unique open and flexible quantum architecture, allowing technology rooted outside the national laboratory environment, such as mature designs in the academic world and evolving industrial products, to be deployed and field-tested.
AQT has built a multidisciplinary in-house team focused on the design, fabrication, operation, and control of superconducting quantum processors while leveraging partnerships with industry.
AQT leverages a robust history of investments, research, and expertise from many different scientific and engineering disciplines across the Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley landscapes. It has a broad mandate to upgrade all aspects of facility operation through a combination of user influenced internal development and strategic partnerships with external entities.
AQT hosts undergraduate students for extended thesis projects, often for a year or more. It also offers an ideal training laboratory for graduate students and postdocs to engage with projects from materials and fabrication to quantum algorithms and applications.
