Our Platform 


The OpenQuantum platform is a collection of MIT-licensed CAD files, machining instructions, electronics schematics, PCB files, firmware, and software that collectively form a magneto-optical trap, the 1997 Nobel Prize-winning apparatus that has since become the foundation for the entire field of atomic and molecular physics.

With this apparatus, makers & researchers can generate and observe a variety of quantum phenomena and design a number of different quantum experiments and devices. The total cost of the full bill of materials is around 8,000 USD, which is almost two orders of magnitude lower than existing commercial solutions.
