Description

An exhibit was created to highlight the importance of VECSEL (vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting-laser) technology for the Quantum Economy sector and to showcase the laser systems developed at the Institute of Photonics in partnership with Fraunhofer Centre of Applied Photonics (FCAP) and at University of Southampton for the UK National Quantum Technologies Hub for Sensors and Metrology.

The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is a UK Government Investment in excess of £600m over 10 years, aimed at accelerating the translation of quantum technologies into the marketplace, boosting British business and making a real difference to our everyday lives. Following on from the four previous national quantum technologies showcase events, the 2019 event will continue to build on the success of previous years, recognising and demonstrating the breadth of current investments and activities undertaken as part of the National Programme and the growing commercialisation of quantum technologies in the UK.
The 2019 Showcase is being organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in collaboration with the National Network of Quantum Technology Hubs and the other National Programme Partners.
