Archer share price soars on US patent
Shares in Archer are flying after announcing a commercialisation milestone earlier today.
The company notified investors that its CQ quantum computing chip has been granted a US patent.
According to Archer, the patent will provide the company with protection of the related intellectual property rights in the US.
Archer regards the US as a critical strategic jurisdiction to help protect and potentially commercialise its products.
As a result, the company noted that the granting of the US Patent is a significant step in its efforts to access global markets and participate in the US technology economy.
In particular, Archer’s announcement highlighted the US government’s commitment to continue investment in quantum technologies.
Archer CEO Dr Mohammad Choucair commented:
Most of the investments, R&D, innovation, and commercialisation in quantum computing takes place in, or originates from, the US. At the core of this thriving innovation ecosystem are patents and the accompanying IP rights. Archer is one of few companies with a patent portfolio protecting quantum computing chip technology and one with a unique global competitive advantage.
