III-V Epi will be exhibiting its rapid turnaround, MBE and MOCVD epitaxial manufacturing services at the UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase, held in London, on 5th November 2021. The showcase, supported by Innovate UK and the KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network), includes over eighty UK exhibitors with high TRL (technology readiness level), quantum solutions.
Calum McGregor, director of III-V Epi, said, “The MBE and MOCVD, epitaxial manufacturing and overgrowth services III-V Epi provides are ideal for Quantum-based businesses, which often require low to medium volumes and a fast turnaround. Quantum businesses have contributed to huge breakthroughs in automotive, healthcare, infrastructure, telecommunications, cybersecurity and defence industries, where we already have experience, including the supply of epitaxy for quantum dots, SPADS and laser sources.”
The UK is home to around half the quantum-based businesses in Europe; driven by a strong collaboration between academia and industry. The UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase allows these businesses to demonstrate current technology, including real-life projects, such as miniature satellites for ultra-secure communications; gas sensors for industrial leaks; and receivers for sensing data breaches.
Amongst the exhibitors will be the National Quantum Computing Centre, which works with business, government and the research community to expedite quantum computing development, and the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme (UKNQTP), which has a £1 billion budget, over 10 years, for quantum research.
