Johannes Zeiher

Co-founder & Research group leader


Johannes Zeiher, Co-founder and Principal Scientist at planqc, is a pivotal figure in the quantum technology landscape. His work on the entanglement of atoms using Rydberg interactions contributed to the scaling up of optical lattices and the inception of planqc, the first startup from Munich Quantum Valley. planqc, a quantum computing company, is revolutionizing the industry by storing information in individual atoms and processing it with laser pulses. This approach, built on the precision of atomic clocks and high-speed Rydberg gates, is the fastest way to scale to thousands of qubits, a key requirement for quantum advantage.
