Complex problems need powerful computing

We make it possible for everyone to think bigger, create faster, and see further. By infusing AI and machine learning, our quantum solutions give you the power to solve the world’s most important and pressing problems.

Shell

The Machine

1Shell

When the computer is operational, five casings (like the white one shown at the top of the image) envelop the machine. These cans nest inside each other and act as thermal shields, keeping everything super cold and vacuum-sealed inside.

Nerves

2Nerves

These photon-carrying cables deliver signals to and from the chip to drive qubit operations and return the measured results.

Heart

3Heart

Beneath the heat exchangers sits the “mixing chamber.” Inside, different forms of liquid helium—­helium-3 and helium-4—separate and evaporate, diffusing the heat.

Skeleton

These gold plates separate cooling zones. At the bottom, they plunge to one-hundredth of a Kelvin—hundreds of times as cold as outer space.

Brain

5Brain

The QPU (quantum processing unit) features a gold-plated copper disk with a silicon chip inside that contains the machine’s brain.
