About us

planqc’s quantum computers store information in individual atoms – nature’s best qubits. Quantum information is processed by arranging these qubits in highly scalable arrays and manipulating them with precisely controlled laser pulses. planqc’s unique combination of quantum technologies is the fastest way to scale to thousands of qubits, a prerequisite for industry-relevant quantum advantage.

planqc’s founding team combines decades of international research on neutral-atom quantum technologies. Our quantum computers are built on the precision of the world’s best atomic clocks, the world’s best quantum gas microscopes, and high-speed Rydberg gates.

planqc is the first startup to emerge from the Munich Quantum Valley, which with its vast network of research institutes and industrial partners fosters a unique quantum ecosystem for startups.

Why us?

planqc is a startup founded by experienced researchers in neutral-atom quantum technologies. We have a track record of achievements, including one of the first quantum gas microscopes for neutral atoms, one of the first optical lattice clocks, and novel techniques for scaling our quantum computers to thousands of atoms. We are leveraging this expertise to build a neutral-atom quantum computer based on ultracold alkaline earth metal atoms, employing techniques such as single-site imaging and addressing for qubit control, highly stable lasers for single-qubit operations and fast Rydberg interactions for two-qubit gates.

At planqc, you will experience the best of both academic freedom and project-driven work. You will contribute to building a functional neutral atom quantum computer with the support of our software engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and algorithm teams. Become part of our team and shape the future of quantum computing.
