Building the next generation of quantum computers with unparalleled know-how.


IQM was founded by a highly ambitious team of world-leading scientists having built several successful quantum labs and research centers globally during the past two decades.

The team’s pioneering work started with breakthroughs in qubit reset, readout, and thermal management towards large-scale quantum processors. Since then, the work has progressed to unique hardware advantages and novel concepts around digital-analog quantum computing.

Our Nordic values and the vibrant ecosystem gives us a unique advantage in building the future of quantum technologies.
