Building the world's best quantum computers

IonQ is a revolutionary quantum computing startup that was founded in 2015 by Professors Chris Monroe and Jungsang Kim of Duke University. Chris and Junsang believe that the best way to build a quantum computer is by starting with nature’s qubit: the atom. IonQ’s quantum cores use lasers pointed at individual atoms to perform longer, more sophisticated calculations with fewer errors than any quantum computer yet built, far surpassing the capabilities of even the largest supercomputers. IonQ is bringing trapped-ion technology out of the lab and into the market.
