Universal QuantumFounded in early 2019 and located in Brighton, UK, Universal Quantum is a spinoff from the Ion Quantum Technology Group at the University of Sussex and headed by Professor Winfried Hensinger. Their goal is to develop practical quantum computers using microwave trapped ion technology that uses long-wavelength radiation and locally applied magnetic fields to replace the vast amounts of individually controlled laser beams used in other ion trap implementations.UKHardware
VeriQloudVeriQloud’s development is centered on quantum network technologies, covering all aspects from protocols and applications to implementations using optical devices. Their goal is to build a commercial offer for clients that have high demands in terms of network security, with quantum network architecture and protocols specifically designed for them. VeriQloud believes that an appropriate use of quantum programming languages can push quantum networks much further than the sole task of establishing shared secret keys through quantum key distribution, even using only currently existing technologies. For this purpose, they are implementing quantum network protocols for various quantum communication technologies including the application of known protocols to industrial problems and development of new network protocols that take advantage of the high security of quantum communication. The company was founded in 2017 and is located in Montrouge, France.FranceCommunications
Wave PhotonicsWave Photonics Wave Photonics is using computational techniques to create tools and IP to enable and accelerate the development, mass production and adoption of integrated photonic technologies. They believe that many obstacles integrated photonics technologies face can be removed using a combination of simulation, statistical modelling and optimization techniques, so they are creating and testing a new way to approach photonics design. The company is located in Cambridge, England and was founded in May of 2021.UKHardware
WelinQWelinQ is on a mission to scale-up quantum computing by interconnecting quantum processors.
