Exhibit Highlights

Nanotechnology for quantum technology

Recently, the quantum technology gets attention. NEC has developed technology for quantum computers after the demonstration of a qubit with using a superconducting circuit in 1999. To promote this research field, NEC-AIST Quantum Technology Cooperative Research Laboratory was set up in March 2019. We will show the latest results such as cases of using nanotechnology for the quantum technology.

Product 1 Sample

Quantum computing for solving combinatorial optimization problems

We introduce quantum annealing technology that instantly solves combinatorial optimization problems inherent in many solutions such as financial portfolio and delivery route. In the early 2020s, we will achieve the world's best quantum annealing.
* Some objects are based on results obtained from a project commissioned by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).
