PsiQuantum’s collaboration with STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory gives rise to clear synergies within the wider Sci-Tech Daresbury Campus. This includes the Hartree National Centre for Digital Innovation (HNCDI), a collaboration between STFC and IBM.
The HNCDI provides businesses of all sizes access to the latest advanced supercomputing technologies, which are normally only available to academia and large-scale industry.
Here, Hartree Centre experts are already developing and testing next-generation software on quantum computing simulators.
Dynamic campus community
PsiQuantum will also take corporate office space within the wider Sci-Tech Daresbury campus, where more than 150 companies are benefitting from ready access to cutting-edge technologies to develop new products and boost productivity.
The campus has a ‘home-for-life’ ethos, which paves the way for businesses to scale up and move into larger premises within the campus as their needs broaden.
Powered by breakthroughs in silicon photonics and fault-tolerant quantum architecture, PsiQuantum is building the first utility-scale quantum computer to solve some of the world’s most important challenges. PsiQuantum’s approach is based on single-photon qubits, which have significant advantages at the scale required to deliver a fault-tolerant, general-purpose quantum computer. With their photonic chips manufactured in a world-leading semiconductor fab, PsiQuantum is uniquely positioned to deliver quantum capabilities reaching the scale needed to drive advances in climate technologies, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, finance, energy, agriculture, transportation, communications, and beyond.
