Quantum technology is a key technology that enables radically new products and services. Quantum computers, quantum simulators, quantum networks, and quantum sensors will soon be able to do things that “classical” devices cannot, such as computing molecules and materials, and providing an internet that cannot be hacked. This puts us at the beginning of a technology revolution that is expected to make a significant contribution to addressing societal challenges in areas such as energy, food, and healthcare. To reinforce this technological revolution, InnovationQuarter, HI Delta, Quantum Delft, and Quantum for Business are organizing the meeting ‘Quantum meets Mechatronics and Semicon Industry’ on May 25th.
Why should you be present at the event?
- South Holland has a favorable position for quantum technology due to knowledge institutions and growing companies
- The Semiconductor and Mechatronics sectors have opportunities in building equipment for quantum technology
- A new value chain for quantum-semiconductor industry is expected to emerge
So are you working for engineering firms or are you an engineer from semiconductor/mechatronics companies and/or supplier to semiconductor OEMs? This can be a starting point for participants towards a new quantum value chain. Take a look at our attractive program.
12h45 Walk in
13h00 Welcome by InnovationQuarter
13h05 Quantum Technologie/computing (QuTech, Richard Versluis)
What is it? What can the quantum computer be used for in the future? What are the possibilities and impossibilities of this computer. How does a quantum computer make use of quantum mechanical effects, so that it calculates in a different and much faster way than our current computers?
13h25 Onnes Technologies, Max Kouwenhoven
Introducing quantum Scanning Probe Microscopy (qSPM) as a new paradigm of SPM and the Quantum Leiden Ecosystem. STM, AFM, and SEM have revolutionized the Semicon Industries and enabled the miniaturization of cMOS-FET down to the nanometer length scale. The Quantum Leiden ecosystem develops now the technology for a new family of quantum-enhanced SPM sensors to (among other things) support Semicon in further miniaturization. The Quantum Leiden SMEs are collaborating within a QDNL-funded Fieldlab to enable demonstration of novel quantum sensing devices and for exploration of use cases within Semicon.
13h40 Single Quantum, Martin Caldarola
Single Quantum was already founded in 2012. As true pioneers they emerged single photon detection technology: they were among the first to manufacture and commercialize superconducting nanowire single photon detectors to perform complex optical measurements. They really want to share this groundbreaking technology with you.
13h55 Demcon, Vincent Fokkema
Which opportunities does Demcon see for the Semicon industry to collaborate with the quantum industry? What is Demcon’s involvement in the quantum industry? How does Demcon collaborate with quantum startups? Why should you get involved in quantum technology now? Why was the IMPAQT consortium established? What are the lessons learned?
14h10 Quantum Delft and House of Quantum tour
Dan Howell welcomes you to the House of Quantum and provides a behind-the-scenes look at quantum start-ups in Delft.
15h00 Workshop: Semicon meets Quantum Experts
Group 1: Quantum Orange System, Amber Van Hauwermeiren, and Thorsten Last
We will address questions such as: how can the Semicon/Mechatronics industry capitalize on the latest quantum technology? Focus on challenges that are different from those in the ‘traditional’ semiconductor industry. Discover similarities with problems experienced by established companies. How will we collectively build this new value chain? What do companies need to know and adapt to this new opportunity?
Group 2: Quantum Leiden and Quantum Delft experts?
What is the difference between quantum sensing and quantum computing? How can semicon Industrie contribute to this ecosystem?
Is your company interested in this new technology and new challenge?
