Quantum-computational chemistry as-a-service

Our postdoc level staff, supported by our scientific advisors (leading professors in computational-chemistry), work closely together with your in-house experts to identify which of your chemical and material problems can already be simulated at the desired accuracy. We translate the relevant Hamiltonian dynamics for those problems to the appropriate quantum-algorithms and implement these on the best available quantum-processors to compute e.g. the potential energy surface, ground and excited state energies or reaction kinetics for your problem. With our services you can make a seamless transition from conventional- to quantum-computational-chemistry integrating our results directly in your existing computational-activities.

In-silico discovery

Chemical and material discovery typically involves many iterative synthesis-formulation-testing cycles in a laboratory, which is very costly and time-consuming. This is one of the reasons why many important new materials, chemicals and drugs remain undiscovered. In-silico (computer based) chemistry-simulations offer a speedy and cost-effective alternative. However, on classical computers, the calculation time for such simulations at the desired accuracy scales exponentially with the problem size making many relevant problems out of reach for even the most powerful high-performance computers. The ability to more accurately simulate large-size chemistry and material-science problems will have a disruptive impact on the volume and quality of material-, chemical- and drug-discovery worldwide.

Quantum computers

Around 1980, quantum-computers were first proposed as a more natural way to simulate quantum-dynamics on the atomic level. However the monumental technical challenges in realizing this concept, meant that it took scientists 30+ years to be able to realize such devices. Today quantum-computing is no longer a theoretical concept: €1+ bln is invested annually in quantum-technologies, quantum-processors from several developers are rapidly becoming available and multiple successive break-throughs in algorithm development are starting to make industry-relevant chemical and material-science problem sizes tractable at the desired accuracy. Qu & Co uses the latest quantum-processors to implement large-scale chemistry simulations. By continuously pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with quantum-algorithms and quantum-hardware, we believe we can help solve many important problems
