Online seminar ›Quantum Technologies: Funding Opportunities and Startups‹

After the successful start, the second virtual meeting of Photonics Germany – the alliance of our Germany-wide association OptecNet Deutschland and SPECTARIS – took place with more than 100 participants on the topic “Quantum Technologies: Funding Opportunities and Startups” took place on March 23.

The participants were welcomed by Dr. Wenko Süptitz (SPECTARIS), Mr. Thomas Bauer and Dr. Andreas Ehrhardt (both OptecNet Germany).

  • Dr. Stefan Hengesbach (Q.ANT GmbH) then presented applications of photonic quantum technologies from the field of imaging and sensing.
  • Dr. Peter Soldan (VDI-TZ GmbH, Project Management Agency of the BMBF) further explained the current funding concept of the BMBF in the field of quantum technologies.
  • The third technical presentation was given by Dr. Kevin Füchsel (Quantum Optics Jena GmbH) and was dedicated to the possibilities of photonics as an enabler for quantum communication and quantum imaging.

In a final discussion round, the current interests of the participants were discussed and main topics for future meetings within the event series were collected.

We sincerely thank all participants for the successful exchange! The next Photonics Germany online event on quantum technologies is scheduled for June 22, 2021. Participation is by invitation of Photonik Deutschland.
