Welcome to the latest edition of Photon Counting News; brought to you by IDQ.
With global interest in quantum technologies growing, we are delighted to announce a new partnership with China Quantum Technologies (QTEC) to bring our quantum encryption products to the Chinese market.
We are also excited to announce that our Photon Counting Division has expanded to the US market in Boston with our regional manager, Mr. Rik Van Gorsel, Ph.D at the helm.
Congratulations to Hugo Zbinden, co-founder of ID Quantique, who is the recipient of the 2016 Heinrich-Greinacher Prize from the Physical Institute of the University of Bern.
QTEC and IDQ’s partnership will bring quantum encryption to the Chinese market and speaks to the growing demand for quantum security technologies.
IDQ’s technology will be adapted for the specific needs of the Chinese market and will be focused on supplying QRNG and QKD systems for the development of the extensive quantum communications backbone being built in the country.
ID Quantique’s Photon Counting division now has a presence in the US with the hiring of our Regional Manager, Mr. Rik Van Gorsel Ph.D, based in Boston.
This enhanced presence comes in conjunction with IDQ’s expansion to additional countries and shows IDQ’s ambition to be closer to its markets and to play a leading role in the supply of commercial quantum communications systems.
Prof. Hugo Zbinden, co-founder of ID Quantique, has been awarded the 2016 Heinrich-Greinacher prize from the Physical Institute of the University of Bern.
The award, in part, recognises the great strides made in applying quantum physical theory to the development of real-world quantum cryptography applications, which have been successfully commercialised and marketed by ID Quantique.
