Leaders in Quantum

Accelerating science


PASQAL builds quantum computers from ordered neutral atoms in 2D and 3D arrays to bring a practical quantum advantage to its customers and address real-world problems. PASQAL was founded in 2019 by Georges-Olivier Reymond, Christophe Jurczak, Professor Dr. Alain Aspect, Nobel Prize Winner Physics, 2022, Professor Dr. Antoine Browaeys, and Dr. Thierry Lahaye.

The team of Antoine Browaeys and Thierry Lahaye at the Institut d’Optique (IOGS, CNRS) has demonstrated for several years that the simulation of many-body problems is intractable for classical High-Performance Computers. Since 2011, they have built and improved programmable quantum simulators made of arrays of neutral atoms.

PASQAL builts atop this decade of expertise and numerous achievements in the engineering of lasers, vacuum systems and detection systems, to manufacture quantum processors that tackle complex issues, from fundamental science to grand industry challenges.

PASQAL has secured more than €40 million in financing, combining equity and non-dilutive funding from Quantonation, the Defense Innovation Fund, Runa Capital, BPI France, ENI, and Daphni. PASQAL has 100+ employees and has offices in Palaiseau and Massy, south of Paris, France, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and Sherbrooke, Canada.
