SCALINQ is a spin-off from Chalmers University of Technology and its pioneering research initiative focusing on developing a full stack, large-scale quantum computer. SCALINQ currently offers a product line of sample holders, LINQER. Sample holders sit the closest to the quantum processor unit (QPU) and are vital for its performance. In our research, we are already developing the next generation of LINQER as well as multiple other needed solutions for facilitating the upscaling of Quantum Computers.
