Accelerate quantum computing research
1 free hour of simulation time per month
with AWS Free Tier
Build quantum projects on a trusted cloud with simple pricing and management controls for both quantum and classical workloads.
Run hybrid quantum-classical algorithms faster with priority access to quantum computers and no classical infrastructure to manage.
How it works
Research quantum computing algorithms
Accelerate scientific discovery with tools for algorithm development and support from the AWS Cloud Credit for Research Program.
Test different quantum hardware
Push the boundaries of quantum hardware research with easy access to superconducting, trapped ion, neutral atom, and photonic devices.
Build quantum software faster
Bring software for quantum computing to market rapidly with Amazon Braket’s software development kit (SDK), simple pricing, and workflow management.
Develop open-source software
Contribute new quantum applications and influence software features, tools, or plug-ins that would make development simpler.
Quantum Hardware Technologies
Gate-based superconducting processors
Superconducting qubits are built with superconducting electric circuits operating at cryogenic temperature. Amazon Braket provides access to quantum hardware based on superconducting qubits from Rigetti.
Gate-based ion-trap processors
Trapped-ion quantum computers implement qubits using electronic states of charged atoms called ions. The ions are confined and suspended in free space using electromagnetic fields. Amazon Braket provides access to ion-trap quantum computers from IonQ.
Neutral atom-based quantum processors
Rydberg atom-based quantum computers take advantage of long-range van der Waals interactions between neutral atoms arranged in one, two or three-dimensional arrays that can be addressed to simulate quantum systems of interest, beyond the capabilities of current classical computers. Amazon Braket provides access to Rydberg atom-based quantum computers from QuEra Computing.
Gate-based Photonic quantum processors
Photonic quantum computers utilize quantum light sources that emit squeezed-light pulses, with qubit-equivalents that correspond to modes of a continuous operator, such as position or momentum. Amazon Braket provides access to photonic quantum computers from Xanadu.
