Oxford Quantum Circuits
Oxford Quantum Circuits (OQC) is a quantum computing hardware research entity spun out of the University of Oxford’s Physics Department in June 2017 to develop a new, scalable quantum computing processor.
Based on the research of the founder, Dr Peter Leek, OQC has patented a way of separating the three core components of a quantum computing circuit in three dimensions. This technology has the potential to offer significant benefits for scaling the size and potential computing power of quantum computers, as well as reducing the incidence of computational errors—an inherent flaw in quantum systems. Quantum computing offers the ability to perform complex tasks impossible with existing computers, such as the modelling of certain molecules and materials compositions, as well as the simulation of drug-drug interactions in the body.
