EPIC World Industrial Quantum Photonics Technology Summit at ICFO

June 5th, 2019 June 5-6, 2019

The world is going through a quantum revolution. The purpose of the EPIC Industrial Quantum Photonics Technology Summit is to bring together the companies in the supply chain towards the commercialization of upcoming products resulting of the current R&D initiatives. According to the EU Quantum Technologies Flagship, as well as many other initiatives worldwide in Quantum technologies, there are 4 main application areas in which a paradigm shift is expected: quantum communication, quantum simulation, quantum computing and quantum metrology.

Following such priorities, the EPIC Industrial Quantum Photonics Technology Summit has the goal of setting up the supply chain for 5 different upcoming product ranges:

  • QUANTUM CLOCKS based on trapped ions and atoms can measure time with unprecedented accuracy.
  • QUANTUM IMAGING and CAMERAS beating classical limits, in markets such as automotive or security, enabling looking around corners or through fog.
  • QUANTUM SENSORS enabling the detection of motion, light, electric and magnetic fields, and gravity with an accuracy that surpasses many conventional technologies.
  • QUANTUM COMPUTERS expected to perform tasks that are intractable for conventional machines. Future quantum computers will be able to perform calculations in seconds for which the current supercomputers could take millions of years.
  • QUANTUM COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS fully secure against hacking.
