Joseph S. Broz from the Quantum Economic Development Consortium visits PicoQuant

On Thursday, November 7, Joseph S. Broz (in the middle of the picture), Executive Director and Governing Board Chairman of the United States Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QEDC) visited PicoQuant and the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut fuer Hoechstfrequenztechnik (FBH). Broz explained the purpose and roadmap of the QEDC which is to foster a robust supply chain and infrastructure for the developing quantum industry in the USA. PicoQuant and the FBH presented their capabilities to provide enabling technologies and R&D ressources for optical quantum technology, which could be beneficial for the consortium members in the near future. "At PicoQuant, we build time-tagging devices that are perfectly suited for many applications in optical quantum technologies," says Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of PicoQuant.

PicoQuant donates to atmosfair’s energy efficiency project in Rwanda

For PicoQuant, green is more than just the company color: Environmental and social responsibility are part of the company’s core philosophy. “We decided to compensate our CO2 emission produced by our air travel by donating to the climate protection organization atmosfair," says Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of PicoQuant. For the air travel miles accrued in 2019, PicoQuant donates 6000 EUR to an energy efficiency project in Rwanda, which focuses on providing highly efficient cook stoves. These stoves are assembled in Rwanda with parts sourced locally.
