Q.ANT on-chip optical modulators successfully demonstrated 

Q.ANT has accom­plis­hed the next mile­stone towards the development of its pho­to­nic quantum com­pu­ter. At the heart of Q.ANT’s approach to pho­to­nic quantum com­pu­ting is the quantum pho­to­nic inte­gra­ted cir­cuit PIC. Here, Qbits based on light ser­ve as infor­ma­ti­on car­ri­ers. By spa­ti­al and tem­po­ral mani­pu­la­ti­on of the photons through the modu­la­tor, quantum effects are gene­ra­ted. This Qbit con­trol is a core com­pe­tence of Q.ANT.

Sin­ce the foun­da­ti­on, Q.ANT reli­es on lithi­um nio­ba­te as the base mate­ri­al for Pho­to­nic Quantum pro­ces­sors. Lithi­um nio­ba­te brings ide­al mate­ri­al pro­per­ties: By app­ly­ing a Vol­ta­ge, it allows to explo­it the elec­tro-opti­cal effect of the mate­ri­al and enab­les to mani­pu­la­te Qbits without los­ses. The opti­mi­zed chip design brings all requi­red ele­ments on a sin­gle mono­li­thic chip — stan­ding out to all pre­sent alter­na­ti­ves used for Pho­to­nic Quantum Com­pu­ting: For the rea­liz­a­ti­on of fast and effi­ci­ent opti­cal quantum com­pu­ter processors.
