Amazon Bracket - How it works

Use cases

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.
