March

Alice & Bob is born

Nature Physics publishes Raphaël Lescanne’s work on cat qubits, a new type of quantum bit inherently protected from a whole class of errors: bit-flips.

Théau, Raphaël’s fellow PhD student, convinces him to start Alice & Bob and together bring cat qubits from the lab to industry.

Cats hit the road

Alice & Bob closes its first 3M€ fundraising.

The scientific board, composed of quantum physics scholars from leading research institutions, is formed. The team counts10 researchers in the following month.

November

Home sweet home

Alice & Bob counts 32 people and gets out of a research lab for the first time, opening its headquarters in Paris and installing a cryostat there.

In the next few months, the first cat qubit chip, Boson 1, is ‘cold’ and ready for testing in Alice & Bob’s new home.

Series A

In a successful experiment an Alice & Bob chip establishes a world record: 100 seconds without experiencing a bit-flip error.

Investors recognize A&B’s potential and sign a 27M€ series A.

60x better

Alice & Bob publishes theoretical evidences that using cats you would need 60 times fewer qubits to run powerful quantum algorithms compared to other state-of-the-art architectures.

In the lab the first operations between qubits are performed on the Hydrogen chip series.

A&B goes overseas

Alice & Bob expands outside of France, opening a branch in Boston, US.

The following month the first notebook to emulate a cat-qubit-based quantum system is distributed by Alice & Bob’s new partners, Equinix and OVH Cloud.

200x better

Alice & Bob proposes a novel error correction technique, now a cat-qubit-based quantum computer would need ~200 times fewer qubits to run powerful quantum algorithms compared to other state-of-the-art architectures.

Moonshots need unwavering values…

We are not afraid to go down untraveled paths, because this is the life of a true innovator: take the risk of venturing into the unknown.

pioneers

Because no one writes history alone, we are mindful, supportive and benevolent going the extra-mile to help each other and contribute to the ecosystem as much as possible.

cohesive

As science should be, we seek the truth, while keeping our promises and our engagements at all costs. 

trustworthy

We foster free thinking, because cracking hard problems requires creativity, while seeking beauty in physics.
