Thanks to sophisticated laser controls, neutral atoms are manipulated individually and arranged in arbitrary 2D and 3D configurations with micrometer scale spacing.

Strong interactions are generated on demand between atoms brought into highly excited states called Rydberg states. These interactions can be switched on and off with 12 orders of magnitude extinction within a highly connected pattern, and are at the heart of analog simulation and digital gate-based computing with this state of matter.

Pasqal’s processors are highly scalable and, thanks to high connectivity between qubits, make quantum acceleration for real life application a credible perspective.
