Who we are and what we do

Q.ANT is the photonic technology scale-up that emerged from TRUMPF’s R&D labs with deep knowledge in light generation, processing and detection. Since its founding as an independent startup in 2018, the company has been advancing and industrializing photonic and quantum technologies in computing and sensing, pushing the boundaries into new application areas and processes. In order to overcome the limitations of existing technologies, Q.ANT has developed the Para.Digm framework . This technology opens doors to new applications ranging from HPC, AI, medical and autonomous vehicles to aerospace, machinery and process industries. Q.ANT is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany.
