MiLiQuant project successfully finalized 

After three years of joint develop­ments, the publicly BMBF-fun­ded pro­ject MiLi­Quant — Minia­tu­ri­zed Light Sources for Quantum Technology — expi­red. Led and coor­di­na­ted by Q.ANT, the pro­ject aim of deve­lo­ping beam sources based on diode lasers to enab­le industrial use of quantum tech­no­lo­gies was suc­cess­ful­ly achie­ved. The inter­disciplinary con­sor­ti­um of sci­ence and indus­try with the pro­ject part­ners Bosch, Zeiss, Nano­scri­be, Johan­nes Guten­berg Uni­ver­si­ty Mainz and the Pader­born Uni­ver­si­ty rea­li­zed minia­tu­ri­zed, fre­quen­cy- and power-sta­ble beam sources. The­se lay the foun­da­ti­on for a mul­ti­tu­de of app­li­ca­ti­ons in the fiel­ds of quantum sen­sing and novel ima­ging methods. With 10 Mio Euro, it in 2019 was one of the first high-volu­me pro­jects in the Ger­man fun­ding land­s­cape, which were sup­por­ted under the new Ger­man Quantum Initiative.

Q.ANT, Bosch, TRUMPF and German Aerospace Center aim to use quantum sensors to control satellites 

Pro­ject part­ners plan to launch first satel­li­te with quantum technology atti­tu­de con­trol in 2027 // Quantum sensors are a key technology for accu­rate­ly con­trol­ling the ori­en­ta­ti­on of com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on satel­li­tes // Sci­en­ti­fic exper­ti­se to be pro­vi­ded by the Fer­di­nand-Braun-Insti­tut, Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Höchst­fre­quenz­tech­nik // Ger­man government allo­ca­tes eight-figu­re sum to sup­port QYRO project

Stuttgart/Cologne/Berlin, August 26, 2022 – Quantum technology start-up Q.ANT, Bosch, TRUMPF and the Ger­man Aero­space Cen­ter (DLR) have for­med a part­ners­hip to deve­lop space-qua­li­fied atti­tu­de sensors. The aim is to use the­se quantum technology-based sensors to achie­ve high-pre­cisi­on atti­tu­de con­trol of minia­tu­ri­zed satel­li­tes and impro­ve world­wi­de data com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons. The sensors’ abi­li­ty to main­tain pre­cise ori­en­ta­ti­on of the satel­li­tes in rela­ti­on to each other will enab­le high-speed data con­nec­ti­vi­ty – and that makes them a key part of the technology puz­zle. “This stra­te­gic part­ners­hip shows the tre­men­dous poten­ti­al that lies in the col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve development of pionee­ring tech­no­lo­gies. The deploy­ment of quantum technology in the aero­space indus­try is a huge oppor­tu­ni­ty for Ger­ma­ny as a major industrial hub,” says Micha­el Förtsch, CEO of Q.ANT. By sup­por­ting a glo­bal net­work of satel­li­tes in low Earth orbit, this new col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve ven­ture will impro­ve Inter­net con­nec­ti­vi­ty, par­ti­cu­lar­ly in more remo­te regi­ons. The Ger­man Aero­space Cen­ter (DLR) hopes to launch its first minia­tu­ri­zed satel­li­tes equip­ped with quantum technology in five years’ time. Atti­tu­de and posi­ti­on sensors that harness quantum effects can be used not only for satel­li­tes, but also for auto­no­mous dri­ving systems and indoor navi­ga­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies in fac­to­ries, logistics wareh­ouses and other faci­li­ties. The pro­ject has a rese­arch bud­get of some 28 mil­li­on euros, much of which has been pro­vi­ded by the Ger­man Federal Minis­try of Edu­ca­ti­on and Rese­arch (BMBF). The part­ners­hip also inclu­des the Fer­di­nand-Braun-Insti­tut, Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Höchst­fre­quenz­tech­nik (FBH), a rese­arch Insti­tu­te that spe­cia­li­zes in deve­lo­ping laser diodes, par­ti­cu­lar­ly for app­li­ca­ti­ons in space. 

Quantum sensors gua­ran­tee extre­me­ly high precision

Reli­able trans­mis­si­on of satel­li­te com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on signals can only be achie­ved by con­stant­ly main­tai­ning high-pre­cisi­on atti­tu­de con­trol of satel­li­tes in their orbit. If a satel­li­te moves out of posi­ti­on, the signals get wea­ker. The con­sor­ti­um plans to use quantum technology to per­ma­nent­ly enhan­ce mea­su­re­ment sta­bi­li­ty. Quantum sensors are par­ti­cu­lar­ly sui­ta­ble for deploy­ment in satel­li­tes thanks to their abi­li­ty to pro­vi­de reli­ab­ly accu­ra­te mea­su­re­ment results and excel­lent per­for­mance in a com­pact, low-weight packa­ge. This solu­ti­on can keep satel­li­tes cor­rect­ly oriented in space over a peri­od of years. 

Solid part­ners­hip bet­ween rese­arch and industry

The goal of deve­lo­ping Euro­pean quantum sensors is to achie­ve grea­ter inde­pen­dence from the glo­bal mar­ket. Q.ANT will lead the col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve development pro­ject and deve­lop the over­all sensor con­cept. It is also respon­si­ble for inte­gra­ting the various sensor com­pon­ents and kee­ping them in pre­cise and sta­ble align­ment with each other to ensu­re they func­tion smooth­ly and reli­ab­ly in the satel­li­te. “The job of our sensor is essen­ti­al­ly to impro­ve the satellite’s equi­li­bri­um,” says Micha­el Förtsch, CEO of Q.ANT. The Stutt­gart, Ger­ma­ny-based quantum technology start-up will also be sup­ply­ing key elec­tro­nic com­pon­ents such as a very low-noi­se detec­tion system. Bosch rese­ar­chers are working on the development of a minia­tu­ri­zed, space-qua­li­fied sensor cell. “The mea­su­ring cell is the core com­po­nent of the quantum sensor,” says Tho­mas Kropf, who heads up rese­arch at Bosch. It is fil­led with an ato­mic gas that is exci­ted by laser beams and magne­tic fiel­ds, which cau­se the atoms to spin. The rota­ti­on of the sensor cau­ses chan­ges in the rota­tio­nal speed of this spin. This pro­vi­des high-pre­cisi­on feed­back on chan­ges in the satellite’s atti­tu­de, ther­eby enab­ling more accu­ra­te atti­tu­de con­trol. “We’re deligh­ted to be part of the pro­ject and to be able to con­tri­bu­te our exper­ti­se in quantum sensors. It’s ano­t­her chap­ter in the suc­cess sto­ry of MEMS (micro-elec­tro-mecha­ni­cal systems) sensor technology at Bosch.”
TRUMPF will con­tri­bu­te laser exper­ti­se from two of its Ger­man loca­ti­ons. TRUMPF Pho­to­nic Com­pon­ents in Ulm will sup­ply the minia­tu­re laser diodes. The­se are cur­r­ent­ly used in smart­pho­nes, industrial opti­cal sensors and simi­lar app­li­ca­ti­ons, but TRUMPF will now be tea­ming up with the Fer­di­nand-Braun Insti­tut to pre­pa­re the­se robust beam sources for use in quantum technology and in space. “I can see a tre­men­dous­ly bright future for our minia­tu­re lasers in a who­le varie­ty of new app­li­ca­ti­ons. This is the kind of government-fun­ded pro­ject that gives Ger­ma­ny a real boost as a major hub of photonics exper­ti­se. The­re are so many inno­va­ti­ve tech­no­lo­gies that can bene­fit from the know-how and sta­te-of-the-art pro­duc­tion faci­li­ties that we have built up over the years,” says Bert­hold Schmidt, CEO of TRUMPF Pho­to­nic Com­pon­ents. TRUMPF’s Ber­lin loca­ti­on spe­cia­li­zes in pro­vi­ding solu­ti­ons in the fiel­ds of sensor, laser and quantum technology. It com­bi­nes the light sources from Ulm with addi­tio­nal mea­su­re­ment technology and then inte­gra­tes the resul­ting system into robust, minia­tu­ri­zed housings using inno­va­ti­ve assem­bly and auto­ma­ti­on tech­ni­ques. The final pro­duct is tem­pe­ra­tu­re-sta­bi­li­zed to ensu­re it can with­stand the extre­me con­di­ti­ons in space. The Gali­leo Com­pe­tence Cen­ter at DLR is respon­si­ble for all space-rela­ted aspects. As well as ensu­ring the system is space-qua­li­fied, it will also be in char­ge of the imple­men­ta­ti­on, trans­por­ta­ti­on and ope­ra­ti­on of the satel­li­te. The Ger­man Federal Minis­try of Edu­ca­ti­on and Rese­arch (BMBF) is fun­ding the joint pro­ject QYRO as part of an initia­ti­ve desi­gned to sup­port flagship pro­jects in quantum-based mea­su­ring technology that aim to address socie­tal challenges.

ACHEMA: Q.ANT optimizes Process Technology with the World’s first Quantum Particle Sensor 

At this year’s ACHEMA (Hall 11.0 Booth F50), the start-up Q.ANT is exhi­bi­t­ing the worl­d’s first industrial-gra­de quantum sensor as a par­ti­cle sensor. This can simul­ta­ne­ous­ly mea­su­re three para­me­ters in real-time. An arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI) ana­ly­zes the mea­su­red para­me­ters and clas­si­fies the par­ti­cles accord­ing to their shape. This allows opti­mi­zed and sus­tainab­le ope­ra­ti­on of plants in che­mi­stry and biotechnology.

Stuttgart/Frankfurt, 09.08.22 — At ACHEMA, the lea­ding inter­na­tio­nal tra­de fair for the pro­cess indus­try, the start-up Q.ANT will show­ca­se the first indus­try-rea­dy par­ti­cle sensor based on quantum technology. The sensor gene­ra­tes far more data on the mea­su­red par­ti­cles in dif­fe­rent media than cur­r­ent­ly avail­ab­le mea­su­re­ment methods. This sensor ana­ly­zes par­ti­cles in dif­fe­rent gases as well as in liquids or pow­ders. The online inte­gra­ti­on of the sensor, thus, allows pro­cess con­trol in real-time and incre­a­ses the pro­duc­ti­vi­ty of the plant as well as the qua­li­ty of the pro­ces­sed media. The resul­ting avo­id­ance of faul­ty pro­duc­tion, which goes hand in hand with redu­ced ener­gy con­sump­ti­on, also makes the par­ti­cle sensor inte­res­ting from a sus­taina­bi­li­ty point of view. With the quantum sensor, con­ti­nuous pro­ces­ses achie­ve the fle­xi­bi­li­ty of batch pro­duc­tion. Sin­ce the­re is often a risk of explo­si­on during pow­der pro­ces­sing, Q.ANT is also working on an ATEX ver­si­on (ATmo­s­phè­res EXplo­si­bles, explo­si­ve atmospheres). 

Ver­sa­ti­le Quantum Technology 

During the mea­su­re­ment, a quantum-modi­fied laser beam shi­nes through the flowing medi­um and its par­ti­cles. “As the par­ti­cle moves through the laser beam, high-fre­quen­cy scan­ning gene­ra­tes a cha­rac­te­ris­tic pat­tern that can be used to simul­ta­ne­ous­ly ana­ly­ze par­ti­cle size, posi­ti­on and velo­ci­ty. The AI then clas­si­fies the signals accord­ing to our cus­to­mers’ spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons, as for examp­le par­ti­cle form”, Andre­as Schürz­in­ger, Pro­duct Line Mana­ger for the par­ti­cle sensor at Q.ANT, states.
The AI must first be trai­ned for the respec­ti­ve use case. Par­al­lel to this, Q.ANT is buil­ding up a data­ba­se of use cases in order to be able to draw on infor­ma­ti­on alrea­dy gai­ned and to shor­ten the trai­ning of the AI. “Inte­res­ted com­pa­nies can also rent the par­ti­cle sensors to test them on their app­li­ca­ti­ons and adapt them to their use cases”, Andre­as Schürz­in­ger says. For this pur­po­se, Q.ANT offers an eva­lua­ti­on pro­gram with trai­ning cour­ses and trai­ning sessions. 

Adap­ta­ble Mea­su­ring Ranges 

The par­ti­cle sensor can be con­fi­gu­red for many dif­fe­rent app­li­ca­ti­ons, inclu­ding other mea­su­re­ment methods and mea­su­re­ment mecha­nisms. Simp­le web-based soft­ware inter­faces make it user-friendly.
“For lab envi­ron­ments, repeat­a­ble ana­ly­sis is pos­si­ble, whe­re data is expor­ted, stored and secu­re­ly trans­fer­red to lab systems or the cloud. A brow­ser is all that is nee­ded for ope­ra­ti­on here. The device does not requi­re a dis­play or but­tons. Ana­ly­ses can run auto­ma­ti­cal­ly in the online envi­ron­ment. In the event of chan­ges bey­ond defi­ned thres­hold values, the­re are auto­ma­ted messages, e.g. via MQTT inter­face, for pro­cess con­trol. A cloud con­nec­tion is also pos­si­ble here”, Schürz­in­ger says.
The num­ber of pos­si­ble app­li­ca­ti­ons is ver­sa­ti­le. Thanks to AI, the sensor remains con­stant­ly up-to-date and is adap­ta­ble to app­li­ca­ti­ons that no one is thin­king of today. This makes the par­ti­cle sensor a real invest­ment in the future. “Our visit to ACHEMA clear­ly shows how far quantum sensors can alrea­dy be used indus­tri­al­ly. For us at Q.ANT, this is the pre­lude to a who­le seri­es of app­li­ca­ti­ons with quantum tech­no­lo­gies, which we will bring to mar­ket matu­ri­ty in the next few years”, Q.ANT CEO and Foun­der Micha­el Foertsch emphasizes.

CEO Michael Förtsch in the circle of 175 inspiring physicists of the DPG 

The “Deut­sche Phy­si­ka­li­sche Gesell­schaft” (Ger­man Phy­si­cal Socie­ty) has laun­ched a spe­cial cam­pai­gn for its 175th anni­ver­s­a­ry year. It pres­ents 175 selec­ted phy­si­cists who today or at their time have or have had an inspi­ring effect on other peop­le or even the who­le socie­ty through their field of acti­vi­ty, their com­mit­ment or their thoughts. Q.ANT CEO Micha­el Förtsch was inclu­ded in this spe­cial circle. 

Micha­el Förtsch, DPG mem­ber sin­ce 2008, ear­ned his doc­to­ra­te at the Max Planck Insti­tu­te for the Sci­ence of Light in Erlan­gen. After working at TRUMPF GmbH, he foun­ded Q.ANT, as start-up of the TRUMPF Group, in 2018 and has been lea­ding it as CEO sin­ce then. More about his care­er, as well as his pas­si­ons out­side of phy­sics, can be found at DPG Phy­sic.

Phy­sics is in ever­ything and ever­y­whe­re, in the histo­ry of the uni­ver­se, in modern com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on technology and medi­cal technology, but also in laser technology and quantum technology. With Q.ANT, Micha­el Förtsch is set­ting new stan­dards in the development of quantum com­pu­ting and quantum sensor technology. With con­cre­te industrial app­li­ca­ti­ons, Q.ANT and Micha­el Förtsch inspi­re pro­duct deve­lo­pers and new busi­ness deve­lo­pers in a wide ran­ge of industries. 

175 years of “Deut­sche Phy­si­ka­li­sche Gesell­schaft” — the DPG loo­ked back on this long and proud histo­ry in 2020. What began in 1845 with six young sci­en­tists from Gus­tav Magnus’ col­lo­qui­um as the “Phy­si­ka­li­sche Gesell­schaft zu Ber­lin” beca­me the “Deut­sche Phy­si­ka­li­sche Gesell­schaft”, which now has around 60,000 mem­bers. In its anni­ver­s­a­ry year 2020, the DPG has set its­elf the goal of brin­ging the fasci­na­ti­on for phy­sics clo­ser to the public and the phy­sics com­mu­ni­ty, but also to dis­cuss the oppor­tu­nities and risks of rese­arch and app­li­ca­ti­on. This can also be shown in the mir­ror of 175 years of DPG, which is not only part of the fasci­na­ting histo­ry of phy­sics, but always also of social and poli­ti­cal developments.

Stuttgart Industry Talks with Q.ANT CEO Michael Förtsch 

The Indus­try Talks of the Ger­man Phy­si­cal Socie­ty (DPG) invi­te phy­si­cists at the inter­face of rese­arch and industrial app­li­ca­ti­on to dis­cuss and exchan­ge expe­ri­en­ces. The core of the event are lec­tures given by renow­ned indus­try lea­ders on cur­rent topics rela­ted to phy­sics and industry. 

Dr. Kars­ten Vet­ter from the DPG’s Indus­try and Busi­ness Working Group spo­ke with Micha­el Förtsch, CEO of Q.ANT GmbH. With the pre­sen­ta­ti­on “Start-Up Pho­to­nic Quantum Tech­no­lo­gies”, Micha­el Förtsch dis­cus­sed the technology, as well as the expe­ri­ence of foun­ding a com­pa­ny and the advan­ta­ges of a start-up. The focus of his talk was on the development of quantum sensors and quantum com­pu­ting chips based on the Q.ANT Pho­to­nic Quantum Framework. 

The full 90-minu­te con­ver­sa­ti­on in Ger­man can be wat­ched here. The Indus­try Talks, which take place at various loca­ti­ons in Ger­ma­ny, pro­vi­de forums for phy­si­cists to exchan­ge ide­as on topics rela­ted to phy­sics rese­arch, at the con­nec­tion point of trans­fer­ring sci­en­ti­fic know­ledge to app­li­ca­ti­ons, and on cur­rent indus­try topics.
