Hannover Messe: Q.ANT gears up for live demonstration of world’s
first industrial quantum sensors

Sensor mea­su­re­ments harness quantum effects to faci­li­ta­te novel app­li­ca­ti­ons in the che­mi­cal, semi­con­duc­tor and mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring sec­tors // Quantum technology can be used to simul­ta­ne­ous­ly mea­su­re the size, shape and velo­ci­ty of microparticles

Stuttgart/Hannover, May 25, 2022 — Visi­tors to Han­no­ver Mes­se will be trea­ted to live demons­tra­ti­ons of the world’s first industrial-gra­de quantum sensors by Stutt­gart-based start-up Q.ANT, a whol­ly owned sub­si­dia­ry of high-tech com­pa­ny TRUMPF. The com­pa­ny will be show­ca­sing par­ti­cle sensors that are able to mea­su­re par­ti­cles in gases, liquids and pow­ders in ways that can­not be accom­plis­hed using cur­rent mea­su­ring technology. At the techno­logical heart of the­se sensors are quantum effects in exci­ted light. Gene­ra­ted in tar­ge­ted ways, the­se effects can be harnes­sed to ana­ly­ze the size, shape and velo­ci­ty of micro­par­ti­cles in one and the same mea­su­re­ment. In turn, the­se mea­su­re­ments make it pos­si­ble to acqui­re infor­ma­ti­on that will faci­li­ta­te new app­li­ca­ti­ons in the semi­con­duc­tor, che­mi­cal and mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring indus­tries. A num­ber of com­pa­nies from the­se sec­tors are alrea­dy put­ting Q.ANT quantum sensors to the test. At Han­no­ver Mes­se, Q.ANT will enab­le visi­tors to expe­ri­ence two industrial quantum-sensor app­li­ca­ti­ons in action for the very first time: 

Mea­su­ring cof­fee pow­der for a food com­pa­ny (Hall 2, Booth A22)

In col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with sensor spe­cia­list SICK, Q.ANT will be show­ca­sing a quantum sensor that food manu­fac­tu­rers can use to check the qua­li­ty of cof­fee. The sensor mea­su­res the size and shape of the grain, which is a key fac­tor in deter­mi­ning how each par­ti­cu­lar cof­fee will tas­te. In order to achie­ve the desi­red level of qua­li­ty, the quantum sensor allows cof­fee pro­du­cers to con­ti­nuous­ly moni­tor the grains during the industrial grin­ding pro­cess. Working tog­e­ther with a major food manu­fac­tu­rer, it has alrea­dy been pos­si­ble to make pow­der mea­su­re­ments. SICK now intends to dis­tri­bu­te the sensor world­wi­de, paving the way for other future app­li­ca­ti­ons in the food sec­tor, par­ti­cu­lar­ly in the pow­der pro­ces­sing industry. 

Mea­su­ring bio­mass in Festo’s algae reac­tor (Hall 6)

The con­trol and auto­ma­ti­on spe­cia­list Festo will also be show­ca­sing an app­li­ca­ti­on that uses the Q.ANT quantum sensor at Han­no­ver Mes­se. Festo uses the sensor to obtain pre­cise, real-time infor­ma­ti­on about the growth of orga­nisms insi­de the reac­tor. To pro­vi­de this infor­ma­ti­on, algae are con­vey­ed to the sensor auto­ma­ti­cal­ly and con­ti­nuous­ly through spe­cial micro­flui­dic com­pon­ents made by Festo, such as pumps that can hand­le extre­me­ly small quan­ti­ties of liquids with out­stan­ding pre­cisi­on. The quantum sensor is able to opti­cal­ly ana­ly­ze indi­vi­du­al cells in order to pre­cise­ly deter­mi­ne the amount of bio­mass. It also checks the cells’ vita­li­ty with the help of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence. The quantum sensor makes it pos­si­ble to respond proac­tively to pro­cess events and take steps to regu­la­te them in order to pro­mo­te fas­ter algae growth. 

Algae have an extre­me­ly high pho­to­syn­the­tic effi­ci­en­cy in their natu­ral envi­ron­ment, bin­ding ten times more car­bon dioxi­de (CO2) than land plants. When algae are grown in bio­re­ac­tors equip­ped with appro­pria­te sensors, con­trol technology and auto­ma­ti­on, this effi­ci­en­cy can be incre­a­sed even fur­ther, reaching a hund­red­fold that of land plants. The sub­s­tan­ces crea­ted in this pro­cess can be used as raw mate­ri­als for phar­maceu­ti­cals, pack­a­ging and cos­me­tics and, ulti­mate­ly, recy­cled in ways that crea­te a cli­ma­te-neu­tral system. 

Q.ANT: a lea­der in the field of quantum com­pu­ter chips

Q.ANT is one of Germany’s lea­ding com­pa­nies in the field of quantum- technology-based industrial pro­ducts. Only a few mon­ths have pas­sed sin­ce the Stutt­gart-based start-up pre­sen­ted its novel pho­to­nic chip pro­cess. Wit­hin the space of the next few years, this new pro­cess will allow today’s estab­lis­hed elec­tro­nic main­frame com­pu­ters to be equip­ped with cut­ting-edge quantum- technology pro­ces­sors. In March 2022, Q.ANT took the helm of a con­sor­ti­um that has the task of buil­ding a demons­tra­ti­on and test system for pho­to­nic quantum-com­pu­ter chips. The con­sor­ti­um has an initi­al bud­get of 50 mil­li­on euros, some 42 mil­li­on euros of which will come from the Ger­man Federal Minis­try of Edu­ca­ti­on and Rese­arch (BMBF).

About Q.ANT

Foun­ded in 2018, Q.ANT is a high-tech start­up and part of the TRUMPF Group. Q.ANT’s visi­on is to impro­ve the qua­li­ty of how machi­nes ana­ly­ze their envi­ron­ment, how humans pro­cess infor­ma­ti­on, and how we think. To achie­ve this goal, Q.ANT deve­lo­ps quantum sensors and quantum com­pu­ting chips based on its Quantum Pho­to­nic Framework.

Q.ANT and Festo agree strategic partnership

Auto­ma­ti­on technology faci­li­ta­tes lar­ge-sca­le bio­mass cul­ti­va­ti­on using arti­fi­cial pho­to­syn­the­sis // Quantum sensor pro­vi­des infor­ma­ti­on on algae growth // Pro­to­ty­pe with quantum technology to be pre­sen­ted at Han­no­ver Mes­se 2022

Esslingen/Stuttgart/Ditzingen, May 22, 2022 – Festo and Q.ANT, a whol­ly owned sub­si­dia­ry of TRUMPF, are ent­e­ring into a stra­te­gic part­ners­hip to cul­ti­va­te bio­mass on an industrial sca­le. The two com­pa­nies aim to achie­ve this using a combi­nation of auto­ma­ti­on technology from Festo and quantum technology from Q.ANT. Algae offers signi­fi­cant poten­ti­al in this context. 

Algae are tiny cli­ma­te-chan­ge fighters

Algae have an extre­me­ly high pho­to­syn­the­tic effi­ci­en­cy in their natu­ral envi­ron­ment, bin­ding ten times more car­bon dioxi­de (CO2) than land plants. When algae are grown in bio­re­ac­tors equip­ped with appro­pria­te sensors, con­trol technology and auto­ma­ti­on, this effi­ci­en­cy can be incre­a­sed even fur­ther, reaching a hund­red­fold that of land plants. The sub­s­tan­ces crea­ted in this pro­cess can be used as raw mate­ri­als for phar­maceu­ti­cals, pack­a­ging and cos­me­tics and, ulti­mate­ly, recy­cled in ways that crea­te a cli­ma­te-neu­tral system. This gives algae con­si­derable poten­ti­al to dri­ve the cir­cu­lar economy. 

“We aim to make a decisi­ve con­tri­bu­ti­on toward impro­ving qua­li­ty of life for both cur­rent and future genera­ti­ons. Our auto­ma­ti­on technology and exper­ti­se in con­trol engi­nee­ring make us the per­fect part­ner for lar­ge-sca­le bio­mass cul­ti­va­ti­on,” says Prof. Vol­ker Nest­le, Head of Life­Tech Pro­duct Development at Festo. “Our goal is to deve­lop mate­ri­als that will be easier to com­post in the future. This opens up a who­le new chap­ter in our Bio­nic Lear­ning Network.” 

Festo pro­to­ty­pe at Han­no­ver Mes­se

One of the big­gest chal­len­ges lies in accu­rate­ly deter­mi­ning the amount of bio­mass. To do this, Festo reli­es on quantum sensor technology from Q.ANT. “Our quantum-based par­ti­cle sensors open the door to new pro­ces­ses, app­li­ca­ti­ons and industrial pro­ducts. Using this technology for industrial pho­to­syn­the­sis is a gre­at way to demons­tra­te how much poten­ti­al it offers for the future,” says Dr. Micha­el Förtsch, CEO of Q.ANT. A pro­to­ty­pe of a system with quantum technology will be pre­sen­ted at Han­no­ver Mes­se 2022. 

Quantum sensor enab­les cell measurements

The Q.ANT sensor pro­vi­des pre­cise, real-time infor­ma­ti­on on the orga­nisms’ growth. To obtain this infor­ma­ti­on, algae are con­vey­ed to the sensor auto­ma­ti­cal­ly and con­ti­nuous­ly through spe­cial micro­flui­dic com­pon­ents made by Festo, such as pumps that can hand­le extre­me­ly small quan­ti­ties of liquids with out­stan­ding pre­cisi­on. The quantum sensor is able to opti­cal­ly ana­ly­ze indi­vi­du­al cells in order to pre­cise­ly deter­mi­ne the amount of bio­mass. It also checks the cells’ vita­li­ty with the help of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence. Only then is it pos­si­ble to respond proac­tively to pro­cess events and take steps to regu­la­te them.

We are hap­py to invi­te you to a very spe­cial espres­so at our stand in Hall 2 / Stand A22 at the Han­no­ver Mes­se. The spe­cial fea­ture of our espres­so is the qua­li­ty tes­ting of the cof­fee pow­der: Tog­e­ther with the sensor spe­cia­list SICK, we pre­sent the worl­d’s first quantum sensor for industrial app­li­ca­ti­ons that can be used to test the qua­li­ty of cof­fee. The sensor mea­su­res the grain size, which plays a decisi­ve role in the dif­fe­rent fla­vours of cof­fee. With the help of the quantum sensor, cof­fee manu­fac­tu­rers can con­ti­nuous­ly check the grain size when grin­ding the cof­fee to achie­ve the desi­red qua­li­ty result. The sensor is also ide­al for other app­li­ca­ti­ons in the food indus­try, and also espe­cial­ly in the che­mi­cal and phar­maceu­ti­cal industries. 

With the slo­gan “Let’s crea­te the Indus­try of Tomor­row”, the worl­d’s lar­gest industrial tra­de fair sees its­elf as the Home of Industrial Pioneers. HMI, which will take place from 30 May to 02 June 2022, is the lea­ding know­ledge and net­wor­king plat­form for the manu­fac­tu­ring indus­try, the ener­gy sec­tor and logistics. From AI and robo­tics to auto­ma­ti­on, logistics IT and industrial soft­ware to bat­te­ries and fuel cells. 

For this envi­ron­ment, we as Q.ANT pre­sent our solu­ti­ons on quantum sensor technology with pho­to­nic quantum technology. Our par­ti­cle sensors are the first to be deve­lo­ped to mar­ket matu­ri­ty based on this technology and open up new app­li­ca­ti­ons for the che­mi­cal, food, bio­tech, mate­ri­al and phar­maceu­ti­cal indus­tries. We look for­ward to your visit!
