About Photonic

Photonic designs and manufactures large-scale, distributed, fault-tolerant quantum computers that will transform materials discovery, computational chemistry, drug development, and secure communications.

Their next-generation quantum technologies are based on photonically-linked silicon spin qubits, which support a universal gate set and entanglement between spin qubits on a chip or between multiple chips using telecom-band photons—a key enabler of quantum networking.

Founded in 2016, with headquarters in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Photonic employs 120 people across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe.
