IonQ is a quantum computing hardware and software company developing a general-purpose trapped ion quantum computer and software to generate, optimize, and execute quantum circuits.
IonQ is developing world-leading general-purpose quantum information processors.
IonQ was founded in 2015 by Chris Monroe and Jungsang Kim. The company is based in College Park, Maryland.
IonQ is introducing the first commercial trapped ion quantum computer. By manipulating individual atoms, it has the potential to one day solve problems beyond the capabilities of even the largest supercomputers.
IonQ's unique trapped-ion approach combines unmatched physical performance, perfect qubit replication, optical networkability, and highly-optimized algorithms to create a quantum computer that is as scalable as it is powerful, and that will support a broad array of applications across a variety of industries.
IonQ is backed by New Enterprise Associates, GV, Amazon Web Services, Amazon, Samsung Catalyst Fund and Mubadala Capital. The company raised $55M from a latest financing on Oct 22, 2019. This brings IonQ's total funding to $77M to date.
