Application-specific quantum computing since 2011
Our co-founder and Chief Scientist Prof. Dr. Enrique (Kike) Solano has a long track record in the quantum computing space. Since more than a decade, with his first pioneering publications having been published in 2011, he and his global collaborators have been developing the scientific foundation behind our key technology concepts.
Selected historic publications
This list is a selection of Kike Solano’s research articles containing both theory and experimental works in modular and codesign quantum simulation and quantum computation involving Embedding Quantum Simulators (EQS), Digital-Analog Quantum Simulation (DAQS), Digital-Analog Quantum Computing (DAQC), Digitized-Adiabatic Quantum Computing, as well as the first works on Modular Quantum Simulation and Modular Quantum Computing in their evolution along the past decade. It also show-cases our strong network of collaborators which reaches to several universities and many leading companies.
