What We Do

Q-CTRL gives you the most effective tools to take control of your quantum hardware

The potential of quantum technology is extraordinarily exciting. However, the challenges of hardware error and decoherence have slowed progress - especially in quantum computing.
Our tools give you the ability to design and deploy the most effective controls to suppress errors in your quantum hardware before they accumulate, accelerating your roadmap to functional systems.

Without proper control techniques, quantum computing is pointless


Q-CTRL builds Quantum Firmware based on our deep expertise in the control of quantum systems

Lab Validated

Lab tests of our controls show orders-of-magnitude improvement in reducing decoherence and hardware errors for quantum computing.

Technology Agnostic

Our tools help you craft controls which are compatible with all hardware platforms.

Easy to Use

Our intuitive platform gets your team up and running quickly and without the need for special expertise.


Q-CTRL provides lab-validated tools for many industries
