Atom Computing

Atom Computing is a quantum computing start-up focused on delivering scalable quantum computers that can solve some of the most daunting problems ever attempted by man or machine.

Atom Computing is building quantum computers using individually controlled atoms.

Atom Computing was founded in 2018 by Benjamin Bloom and Jonathan King. The company is headquartered in Berkeley, California.


Atom unveiled its first-generation quantum computing system, Phoenix, a 100-atom system showcasing astonishing stability. This innovative breakthrough demonstrates Atom Computing’s ability to produce quantum systems with stability at scale.


Atom's Phoenix is currently capable of trapping 100 atoms in a vacuum chamber with optical tweezers. Phoenix is able to rearrange and manipulate their quantum states with lasers.


Atom Computing’s quantum computers will use quantum mechanical properties of atoms to process information and solve problems beyond the reach of traditional computers, including drug design, computational chemistry, and more.


Atom Computing is backed by Third Point Ventures, Venrock, Primer Movers Lab, Innovation Endeavors, Prelude Ventures, and others. The company raised $60M in Series B round on Jan 20, 2022. This brings Atom Computing's total funding to $80M to date.
