High Precision Devices delivers cryostat for quantum computing
Leading developer of scientific instruments offers turnkey instruments for use in experiments in quantum computing.
Boulder, Colorado (News Wire) September 1, 2013 - High Precision Devices, Inc. (HPD), a Boulder county instrument developer and manufacturer, has successfully built and delivered to the University of California at Santa Barbara a large cryostat (cold chamber) for cutting-edge research in quantum computing.
This project was funded by the US Army through a Phase II Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant for $750K. The cryostat produces temperatures below 15 mK (-273° Celsius!) as required by the superconducting circuits of a quantum computer. Quantum computing is an emerging technology for super-high speed computation that may supplant classical (transistor-based) digital computers in very demanding applications. Note: The content of this announcement does not necessarily reflect the position or the policy of the U.S. Government, and no official endorsement should be inferred.
HPD was founded in 1993 and employs 20 scientists, engineers, and technicians. HPD manufactures a line of research cryostats, and also develops and builds custom, one-of-a-kind, scientific instruments for research labs worldwide.
