With the growing potential of quantum sensors, new challenges are facing the photonics quantum industry.This meeting will explore the future applications of industrialized quantum sensors such as ion traps,gravimeters, accelerometers, as well as quantum-enhanced imaging systems, such as SPADs and low-lightcameras. This will allow end-users automotive, medical, defense and other fields to challenges leaders in the quantum industrialization field and create new business opportunities.

Technology Explainer

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
