Builder Of Quantum Computers Opens Research And Development Facility In Boulder

Atom Computing, a California-based startup that builds quantum computers, opened its largest research and development center in Boulder on Wednesday.

The new location marks a win for Colorado’s growing quantum industry, which is centered in the Denver-Boulder area. Other players in the market include Boulder-based ColdQuanta, Englewood-based Quantum Corporation and the merger of Quantinum, Broomfield-based Honeywell Quantum Solutions and UK-based Cambridge Quantum.

Quantum computing is not only attracting public attention; Investors are opening their checkbooks to the booming industry. According to Boston Consulting Group, it “raised nearly twice as much capital in 2020 and 2021 ($2.15 billion) as in the previous 10 years combined ($1.16 billion).”

Atom Boulder will serve as a development site for future generations of quantum computing systems.

CEO Rob Hayes said his company chose Centennial State for its talent and breadth of experience. He plans to spend $100 million in Colorado over the next three years as the company expands its recruiting efforts.

“The addition of Atom Computing helps position Colorado as an economic leader for the next big wave of technology development and will create better paying jobs for Coloradans,” said Gov. Jared Polis, who attended Wednesday’s grand opening.

Polis described Boulder as “one of the world’s fastest-growing quantum computing industrial centers”.

IBM defines quantum computing as “an emerging technology that uses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems too complex for classical computers”.

Lasers, solar cells, GPS atomic clocks, and MRI scanners are examples of technologies that use quantum mechanics.

Atomic science advisor Jun Ye, a professor of physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder, sees more opportunities for Colorado students to “lead the next wave of innovation in quantum research and markets.”

He called recent graduates of the University of Colorado “early pioneers of the fast-growing quantum industry.”

In addition to Ye, MU also has other leading researchers in the field of quantum physics, such as professors Margaret Murnen, Henry Kaptan and Noah Finkelstein.

“We’re busy in Colorado,” added Atom founder and CTO Ben Bloom, a CU Boulder graduate.

Founded in 2018, Atom Computing is located in Berkeley, California, just north of Silicon Valley, home to many global technology giants.
