The founders of AQT have been the first persons to realize a controlled-NOT gate operation – the building block for general-purpose quantum computers. Since then, ion-trap quantum computers are at the forefront of quantum technology development: from atomic clocks to quantum simulators, to universal quantum computers.

Beyond state-of-the-art applications such as factoring, simulations on high-energy physics or quantum-chemistry, AQT ion-trap technologies offer a clear roadmap to large-scale quantum computers: from scalable ion-trap processors to photonic networks connecting quantum computers.
