New Chief Technology Officer strengthens PicoQuant’s R&D Department

Jürgen Breitlow now coordinates the work in all development areas

Due to its steady growth, PicoQuant has broadened its management structures. In August 2018, Jürgen Breitlow (50) took over from Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of PicoQuant, the holistic management of the company's three development areas. This new position strengthens PicoQuant's efforts to continually provide customers with innovative optoelectonic products of the highest quality. “We are very glad that we were able to hire such an experienced manager for this position”, says Rainer Erdmann. “Jürgen Breitlow has a proven track record in various industries and his holistic approach will enable us to provide customers with the best and most innovative products even faster.”

Two Winners of the Young Investigator Award

PicoQuant sponsors a prize worth 1000 USD at SPIE BiOS 2019

The winners of the Young Investigator Award 2019 are Hugh Wilson from the Princeton University for his oral presentation on “Tetherless and long-term single molecule FRET in an anti-Brownian trap” and Jeongmin Kim from the University of California, Berkeley for his oral presentation on “Oblique lightsheet STORM for tissue samples”.

Congratulations!

The BiOS symposium that is part of SPIE Photonics West, North America's largest photonics event, was held February 2 to 7, 2019 in San Francisco, California, USA. Every year, PicoQuant co-organizes the special conference “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Superresolution Imaging” within the BiOS symposium and sponsors the “Young Investigator Award” worth 1000 USD.

PicoQuant entwickelt höchstpräzise Timing-Elektronik als Schlüsselkomponente für Quantentechnologien

Das Berliner Unternehmen leitet das vom BMBF geförderte Projekt QuPAD

Dem abhörsicheren Versenden und Empfangen von Informationen kommen im heutigen Zeitalter der globalen Kommunikation eine immer wichtigere Bedeutung zu. Die gebräuchlichen Verschlüsselungsverfahren sind jedoch nicht mehr sicher, sobald der sich in der Entwicklung befindliche Quantencomputer Realität wird. Das vom BMBF geförderte Projekt QuPAD, unter der Leitung des Berliner Unternehmens PicoQuant, sucht nach einem möglichen Ausweg aus diesem Dilemma durch den Einsatz von quantenmechanischen Verfahren in der Kommunikation, wie z. B. der Quantenschlüssel-Verteilung (Quantum Key Distribution – QKD), mittels derer eine abhörsichere Kommunikation auf Basis physikalischer Eigenschaften möglich ist. Entsprechende Verfahren und Protokolle sind heute bekannt, leiden aber unter Reichweiten- und insbesondere Geschwindigkeitsproblemen in der Erzeugung der geheimen Schlüssel, was den alltäglichen Einsatz noch unpraktikabel macht.
