Aegiq (/ˈiːdʒɪk/, ee-jik) is building a new generation of networking and computing with quantum technology. The company is using its pioneering single-photon and integrated quantum optics platform to address the demand for next-gen fibre and satellite quantum communications, as well as drive further research and development in quantum computing and quantum optics using its advanced technology.

Delft Circuits designs and manufactures i/o (cabling) solutions for cryogenic environments to operate quantum systems. These environments have stringent space-, thermal-, and electronic requirements. Our Cri/oFlex® technology is the first technology to carefully balance these requirements and therefore is an enabler for large scale quantum systems.

HQS Quantum Simulations predicts material properties using quantum computers. The company accelerates development cycles in the chemistry and pharma industries. Quantum computers can perform calculations impossible even for the most powerful supercomputers. Current quantum computers suffer from intrinsic errors that limit their performance. The HQS Team developes algorithms for quantum computers that can deal with these errors and enable our customers to profit from the performance advantage of quantum computers earlier than their competitors. Furthermore, HQS offers individual simulation solutions for conventional computers with an integration of high-end simulation methods and the possibility to utilize the upcoming quantum computers.

Kiutra develops fully-automatic cooling solutions for the generation of extremely low temperatures near absolute zero at -273°C. In contrast to conventional Helium based cooling methods, kiutra’s magnetic cooling technique is user-friendly, requires low-maintenance and is scalable. It is therefore highly suitable e.g. for the cooling of quantum technologies at industrial scale.

Pixel Photonics was founded in 2020 as a spin-off from the working groups of Prof. Wolfram Pernice and Prof. Carsten Schuck at WWU Münster by Nicolai Walter, Dr. Wladick Hartmann, Fabian Beutel, Martin Wolff and Christoph Seidenstücker with the goal to commercialize highly scalable single-photon detectors based on the waveguide-integrated SNSPD approach. Applications for Pixel Photonics technology are ranging from optical quantum computing, Quantum key distribution (QKD), microscopy to metrology and sensing. The company consists of an international team with 8 FTEs and has received venture funding from Quantonation and HTGF as well as research funding from the Federal Ministry of Education¬ and Research (BMBF) in addition to the EXIST research transfer grant.

QphoX is developing a Quantum Modem which will allow quantum processor to connect over an optical network. Our technology is aimed at combining the quantum computing and quantum networking markets, with the goal of realizing the backbone of a future quantum internet.
