Q.ANT is a high-tech startup driving and industrialising photonic quantum technology, pushing the borders to new fields of application and processes. The company was founded in 2018 and is part of the TRUMPF Group. Q.ANT develops quantum sensors and photonic chips and processors for quantum computing based on its Quantum Photonic Framework. Focusing on its four product lines of Photonic Computing, Particle Metrology, Atomic Gyroscopes and Magnetic Sensing, the company engages with a broad array of industries and applications ranging all the way from medical technology and autonomous vehicles to aerospace, machinery, and the process industry. Q.ANT employs more than 90 people at its site in Stuttgart/Southern Germany.
Our Q.ANT values stand for our work. We aim for the best QUALITY both in our products and in our daily work results. Through our knowledge and imagination, we ANTICIPATE what will be important for us and our customers tomorrow. Due to our natural urge for NOVELTY, we see the status quo as a launching pad for improvement. And, we have internalized that great things are always created as a TEAM.

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) supports collaborative projects in the field of quantum technology, including quantum sensing and quantum computing, which address significant societal needs. Q.ANT is involved in these projects as a consortium leader or project partner.
PhoQuant aims to provide an advantage for the computation of industrially relevant applications. For this purpose, the consortium, under the project leadership of Q.ANT, is developing a new photonic computing architecture that enables a quantum computer with up to 100 qubits.
The concept of the NMR gyroscope is intended to be further developed towards a demonstrator, surpassing the current state of the art, through the utilization of innovative laser technology and a consistent strategy of miniaturizing all components. This demonstrator will be validated on a CubeSat satellite in low Earth orbit.
QSens is dedicated to the development of quantum sensors in the field of metrology and sensing, which exhibit sensitivity at the edge of what is theoretically possible.
In this collaborative project, a compact vector magnetometer based on quantum effects in diamond is being developed.
The aim of this project is to develop a novel platform for a quantum computer in which individual light particles, known as photons, are used as qubits.
