Qnami Announced $2.6M Seed Round for Quantum Microscope Development
(Qnami.ch) Qnami announced today the closing of a $2.6M USD seed round led by Venture Capital fund Quantonation and further supported by investiere, ZKB Start-up Finance and the High Tech Gründerfond. The funds will support the market entry of Qnami’s first product, a quantum microscope for inspection of magnetic materials at the nanoscale, and further developments of quantum sensing applications.
Qnami Developing Platform for Analysis of Materials at Nanoscale
Qnami is a Swiss start-up founded in November 2017. It has developed an innovative platform for the analysis of magnetic materials at the nanoscale, based on a proprietary quantum technology. Mathieu Munsch, cofounder and CEO of Qnami says “in modern electronics, the magnetic properties of materials play a crucial role. Yet, they are not always well understood and even less well-controlled, in particular at sub-micron scale. Our technology allows scientists and engineers to explore new ideas, to directly visualize the effect of any small change in their design or fabrication process”. Our first product will help them finely focus their efforts, so that they can create, design and deliver the electronics of the future”. Qnami’s quantum microscope addresses a specialized market with excellent growth prospects. But as Munsch says, the vision of Qnami goes beyond this horizon. “With the Quantum Foundry we want to bring our technology, and the know-how we are developing, to other areas where classical solutions have reached their limits”.
