The German Physical Society decided to host their first DPG summer school on quantum technologies. Around 85 interested students signed up for the dense program of around 20 in-depth lectures on state of the art quantum technologies, covering a wide range of topic from magnetic sensing, over atom interferometry, quantum computing and of course quantum communication, just to highlight a few.
Since current quantum technology efforts are also focused on technology transfer from basic science to industry, the organizers decided to add an industry session to the program. This session included pitch talks and a relaxed poster session at the nice outdoor ambiance of the Bad Honnef physics center. The range of participants went from well established companies like TOPTICA Photonics, to freshly founded startups like Quandela or Qnami or startup projects like us – InfiniQuant.
