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 evaluates novel emerging technologies that can potentially complete or replace existing hardware thereby mitigating some of the discovered limitations.

AQT partners with the full ecosystem of quantum researchers in academia, National Labs, and industry to exploit synergies that advance quantum processor technology and algorithm development relevant to real work applications.

AQT offers open access to the entire quantum computing stack enabling broad explorations with increasingly complex superconducting processors for gate-based computing.

AQT trains the next generation of scientists and engineers on cutting-edge multiple hardware and software resources and transitioning advances.

AQT complements other resources in the quantum ecosystem by providing users access to the latest pre-competitive quantum devices.
