Discover recent advances in Quantum Computing with Quantinuum at APS March Meeting

February 14, 2024

The American Physical Society’s (APS) March Meeting is the world’s largest physics conference enhancing education and collaboration in a variety of scientific research areas. As the interest in and potential of quantum technology increases, so does the number of conference sessions about the topic.

This year, the Quantinuum team will be participating in many of the APS March Meeting sessions to discuss the latest advancements in quantum technology. Find us throughout the week at the below sessions and visit us at Booth 605 in the expo hall.
