(BMBF.de) A strategic initiative of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Research and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for Quantum Imaging and Quantum Sensing has been launched with 30 million euros. A total of eleven Fraunhofer institutes are working on the initiative to build more research knowledge and to develop application-oriented technologies for close cooperation with industry.The initiative will fund the Quantum Photonics Labs (QPL) at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering in Jena. This will create a transfer center for universally applicable quantum optical technologies.
Prof. Dr. Reimund Neugebauer, President of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, summarizes the future strategic orientation: “The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft regards quantum technologies as an important opportunity for the future of the high-tech location of Germany and Europe.”
Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek emphasizes: “Germany wants to make use of the opportunities offered by quantum technologies and to actively shape their development. We want to bring knowledge from basic research into application.”
