Q.ANT goes Quantum Computing 


Today was a very important day for us. We announ­ced that we will enter Quantum Computing. 

After three years of development, we suc­cee­ded to rea­li­ze high­ly effi­ci­ent light chan­nels on sili­con, the work­hor­se of the semi­con indus­try. With this technology we will be able to gene­ra­te, trans­port and mani­pu­la­te qubits very efficiently. 

Our goal is to deve­lop a ful­ly func­tio­n­al quantum chip in five years that will sup­port today­’s com­pu­ters.

Wave­gui­des are the cen­tral buil­ding block of opti­cal data pro­ces­sing. In addi­ti­on to app­li­ca­ti­ons in telecom­mu­ni­ca­ti­on, this technology is at the heart of a wide ran­ge of quantum technology app­li­ca­ti­ons, from quantum sen­sing and quantum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on to quantum com­pu­ting.

Cus­to­mi­zed wave­gui­des enab­le the con­trol of light and quantum effects in a high­ly inte­gra­ted form. That’s why they are con­si­de­red the cen­tral buil­ding block for brin­ging quantum tech­no­lo­gies out of the labs and into ever­y­day products.

Quantum sensor technology as a key enab­ler for pre­cise mea­su­re­ment of the posi­ti­on and loca­ti­on of objects. 

Sounds a bit com­plex, but exact­ly this indoor loca­liz­a­ti­on system can be a door ope­ner for the auto­ma­ti­on of pro­ces­ses for Indus­try 4.0, Smart Home as well as robo­tics app­li­ca­ti­ons in the field of Health­ca­re and Smart Agriculture.

On 01.04.2021, the new BMBF-fun­ded joint pro­ject Qua­ma­po­lis was laun­ched, in which we at Q.ANT, tog­e­ther with Bosch, Würth, Stutt­gart Uni­ver­si­ty and Ulm Uni­ver­si­ty, aim to achie­ve a reso­lu­ti­on of less than 1 cm.

Deligh­ted about this decisi­on, we will immedia­te­ly start to imple­ment it. 

We are focu­sing on the development of new quantum sensors for the are­as of IOT & Life­style, Mobi­li­ty, Health­ca­re & Bio­me­di­cal and Sustainability. 

One of the key suc­cess fac­tors is our strong part­ner land­s­cape of cur­r­ent­ly 19 com­pa­nies and 2 uni­ver­si­ties and three rese­arch institutes. 

We at Q.ANT are very plea­sed to be a key part­ner of this for­ward-loo­king clus­ter. Let’s dri­ve Quantum Tech­no­lo­gies to Industry!

Louise Hoppe, Quantum Future Award 

Congra­tu­la­ti­ons Loui­se — all of us at Q.ANT are super hap­py with you about your second place at this year’s Quantum Future Award 2020 of the BMBF. What an impres­si­ve result.

Loui­se did her mas­ter the­sis tog­e­ther with the Insti­tut für Strahl­werk­zeu­ge (IFSW) in Stutt­gart and Q.ANT. With her mas­ter the­sis she laid the foun­da­ti­on at Q.ANT for the development of our scala­b­le non­line­ar wave­gui­de technology. This enab­ling technology ser­ves as a cen­tral ele­ment for genera­ting entangle­ment in many quantum tech­no­lo­gies, such as pho­to­nic quantum com­pu­ting or quantum imaging.

Cooperation with SICK 

Today was an enor­mous­ly exci­ting day for us and Ger­man industrial quantum technology ali­ke. Today we signed a coope­ra­ti­on agree­ment with our part­ner SICK. Tog­e­ther, we had recent­ly demons­tra­ted a suc­cess­ful func­tio­n­al test of the worl­d’s first quantum opti­cal sensor that can be used for seri­es production. 

With our sensor it is pos­si­ble to ana­ly­ze in real time each par­ti­cle in the mea­su­re­ment volu­me with regard to its size, its velo­ci­ty and its par­ti­cle direc­tion. This addi­tio­nal, simul­ta­ne­ous­ly acqui­red infor­ma­ti­on opens up com­ple­te­ly new dimen­si­ons in par­ti­cle analysis. 

At the start of our coope­ra­ti­on, we will focus tog­e­ther with SICK on the fol­lowing app­li­ca­ti­ons, for example:

1. ana­ly­sis of par­ti­cle con­ta­mi­na­ti­on sources in the semi­con­duc­tor industry.
2. veri­fi­ca­ti­on of com­pli­an­ce with par­ti­cu­la­te mat­ter limits and for opti­mi­zing ven­ti­la­ti­on con­trol in buil­dings, such as subways
3. con­ti­nuous inspec­tion of par­ti­cle size dis­tri­bu­ti­on in pow­der manu­fac­tu­ring, for examp­le from tablet to cement production.

With this technology, mass pro­duc­tion of quantum opti­cal sensors is wit­hin reach. Over the next few mon­ths, we will now work tog­e­ther to deve­lop a prototype.
