QuantumWise logoQuantumWise is a provider of software solutions for development of nanotechnology. QuantumWise bought the assets of Atomistix after it went bankrupt in January 2009. The company is working in close collaboration with the Nano-Science Center at the Niels Bohr Institute of Copenhagen University. QuantumWise was acquired by Synopsys in 2017.

QuantumWise is offering a system of integrated software modules that can accurately calculate properties associated with electron distribution and transport. The software can accurately simulate experiments with spin-dependent transport, as encountered in Tunneling Magnetoresistance (TMR) technologies and Magnetic Nanowires. The software is called "Atomistix Toolkit" (or ATK).
