SCALINQ introduces Gothenburg’s microwave engineering community to exciting developments within quantum computing

The SCALINQ team was at a Microwave Road event on quantum computers in Gothenburg on October 27, 2022.

The event was Microwave Road’s first in-person event since the pandemic.

Dr Giovanna Tancredi, one of our co-founders, gave a presentation on the current challenges and advances in quantum computing—and on our work at SCALINQ to advance the development of quantum computers.

“I decided to present our work to a microwave engineering audience to make them aware that in quantum computing with superconducting circuits there is a lot of microwave engineering involved. I think that it is important to pass the message that our field can benefit from more interactions with companies engaged in microwave engineering,” she said.

SCALINQ is uniquely placed in the quantum computing and microwave engineering fields as LINQER, our first solution, uses microwave technology to host large-scale quantum processors. LINQER has the capacity to host up to a 100-qubit processor and so enables 12 times more quantum bits than other commercially available alternatives.   

Dr Tancredi also spoke on our collaboration with the Wallenburg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT) at Chalmers University, Gothenburg—the research initiative that gave rise to SCALINQ. The WACQT is a one billion SEK research effort that aims to put Sweden at the forefront of quantum computing research.

With initiatives like the WACQT, Gothenburg is fast becoming an innovation powerhouse for quantum computing, and it is now home to several deep-tech startups, including SCALINQ.

Other speakers at the event were Robert Rahammar (another of SCALINQ’s co-founders), Anita Fadavi (Chalmers), and Jörgen Stenarson (Low Noise Factory).
