SEEQC today announced the addition of a scientific advisory board to its leadership. This addition comes at a time when the company is unveiling a new brand identity and expanding its team internationally, including the appointment of Shu-Jen Han as its vice president of engineering.
SEEQC’s new scientific advisory board consists of leading academics from across the world, including Javad Shabani, assistant professor of physics at NYU, professors from the University of Napoli Federico II, Francesco Tafuri and Giovanni Piero Pepe, and Maxim Vavilov, professor at the University of Wisconsin.
In addition to expanding its leadership with the advisory board, SEEQC has also appointed industry veteran Dr. Shu-Jen Han as its vice president of engineering. Han brings more than a decade of experience in the nanotechnology and semiconductor industry to SEEQC, as well as world-class expertise in logic and memory chip-making — a critical component of scaling the company’s system-on-a-chip quantum design.
The new brand reflects SEEQC at its core –– not only as a company name but as an acronym: Scalable, Energy-Efficient Quantum Computing. Other aspects of the company’s brand portfolio have been updated to evince different aspects of the company’s technology. SEEQC’s visuals evoke a feeling of efficiency, purpose and a close relationship with nature, just as its end-product uses elements of nature to solve classically intractable problems and address the world’s greatest challenges.
To further advance its technology, SEEQC has partnered with Dutch quantum startup QuantWare. With additional support from the University of Napoli Federico II, the companies will co-develop an advanced Quantum Processor Unit (QPU) with integrated cryogenic digital control logic. This partnership combines SEEQC’s proprietary platform with QuantWare’s scalable QPU design, resulting in the world’s first commercially available platform, capable of overcoming key scalability engineering challenges.
