PALO ALTO, Calif., December 28, 2021 – PsiQuantum, a silicon fault tolerant photonic quantum computing company, and QunaSys, a developer of quantum algorithms and quantum chemistry calculations for materials development, have launched a research project joint to assess the power of fault-tolerant quantum computing for industrial chemistry calculations. The calculations aim to accelerate the development of sustainable materials.
Specifically, the companies will collaborate to advance the use of quantum computing in the chemical industry, combining complementary strengths in quantum hardware, algorithm development, and materials science.
Quantum computers can effectively emulate other quantum systems, such as electrons in molecules, for more predictable and accurate information about the chemical and physical properties of complex materials, and to pave the way for the development of more durable and longer products. eco-friendly. The Japanese materials science company JSR Corp. joined the project as an alpha client. JSR will evaluate quantum computing for advancements in the fabrication of photosensitive resins, elastomers, plastics and reagents.
QunaSys will work with PsiQuantum to develop software to estimate the computational time and resources required for a fault-tolerant quantum computer to solve advanced quantum chemistry simulations. JSR will then use this software for materials research and development. He will use fault-tolerant quantum computers to solve previously impossible material simulations.
“Our partnership with PsiQuantum gives us access to the latest advancements in fault tolerant quantum computing, a key requirement for handling commercially useful applications,” said Tennin Yan, CEO of QunaSys. “Working with JSR means this research will support groundbreaking developments from a leading materials science company whose products and services are created with an emphasis on preserving the environment. “
Josh Richman, Chief Revenue Officer of PsiQuantum, said: “This kind of collaboration could pave the way for the discovery of new materials for use in the manufacture of semiconductors, synthetic rubbers, LCDs, 3D applications. digital, next-generation plastics, new life science products, and more.
