The Advanced Quantum Testbed is a collaborative research laboratory funded by the U.S. Department of Energy to advance quantum computation based on superconducting circuits. AQT is an open platform to explore and define the future of superconducting quantum computers end-to-end, from quantum processor technology to quantum algorithms.
Teams from academia, industry and government laboratories are welcome to apply to become AQT users. In collaboration with AQT’s expert team, testbed users have full access to hardware and software, participate in its evolution, and advance the science enabled by quantum computing.
Details on requirements, scope, and application process are available in the User Letter of Intent and Proposal Guide. Information about the AQT resources available to users can be accessed at AQT Capabilities.
AQT reviews and approves Letters of Intent on a rolling basis. As a first step, please submit your Letter of Intent through the LOI Webform.
Due to changes in operating conditions as a result of COVID-19, we are unable to provide on-site access to users at this time. All user projects will be conducted remotely with assistance from AQT staff. We anticipate being able to offer on-site access no earlier than mid-2021.
