The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and Broadcom have announced a multi-year partnership to advance quantum science research and innovation. The partnership, backed by a significant (but not publicly announced) investment from Broadcom, will establish the Broadcom Quantum Laboratory at Caltech, fostering collaboration among experts in quantum computing, sensing, measurement, and engineering. The investment will support joint research to expedite discovery. Over the next five years, an annual symposium will be hosted by both organizations to explore mutual interests and future development opportunities. The new laboratory will be located in the Ginsburg Center for Quantum Precision Measurement and construction of the facility will begin soon. The laboratory is scheduled to open in the fall of 2025.

Caltech President Thomas F. Rosenbaum and Broadcom CEO Hock Tan expressed their shared belief in the transformative potential of quantum discoveries and their commitment to this partnership. Caltech, a world leader in science and engineering research, is renowned for its contributions to quantum science research.
