May 2020: 25 years ago the seminal Cirac-Zoller paper that laid the foundation for a trapped-ion quantum computer appeared in PRL.
April 2020: The AQT quantum computer is now supported by t|ket⟩, the quantum software development kit of Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC), via pytket.
January 2020: AQT co-founder Rainer Blatt receives honorary doctorate from the Complutense University of Madrid.
November 2019: AQT researchers and colleagues have demonstrated a new method to benchmark different quantum computer platforms.
November 2019: The AQT ion trap quantum computer now supports Qiskit, a prominent open-source quantum programming language initially created by IBM and developed by scientist all around the world.
September 2019: Quantum algorithm developers can now have direct access to our quantum computer in Innsbruck. The Cirq framework developed by Google can be used to explore quantum algorithms on our trapped ions.
August 2019: We are delighted to announce that AQT co-founder Peter Zoller receives the John Stewart Bell Prize for his outstanding achievements in the field of quantum information processing.
April 2019: We are pleased to announce that two of the co-founders of AQT, Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller, together with one of our board members, Ignacio Cirac, are awarded the Micius Prize, which is presented for the first time this year.
