About the Company: QuantrolOx was founded in 2021 by deep-tech entrepreneurs and quantum researchers Prof Andrew Briggs, Vishal Chatrath, Prof Natalia Ares, and Dominic Lennon. QuantrolOx is building automated machine learning-based control software for quantum technologies to tune, stabilize, and optimize qubits. Quantum computers need many thousands of qubits, but due to uncertainties in control instruments, fabrication and design, qubits have subtle variations requiring different sets of control parameters to render each one usable. QuantrolOx’s software is technology agnostic and applicable to all types of quantum technologies. However, the company is initially targeting solid-state qubits where the team has already demonstrated substantial practical benefits.
