CeNTech Start up Pixel Photonics received seed funding

Pixel Photonics, a Quantum technology spin-off from the WWU Münster located at CeNTech, raised 1.45 million Euros in a seed-round from the German VC fund High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), the French quantum-focused VC fund Quantonation as well as the photonic industry veteran Dr. Hendrik Sabert. Pixel Photonics develops highly scalable integrated-optical single-photon detectors that enable scaling of solutions in quantum computing, QKD and imaging among others. The Pixel Photonics detector design is based on research activities of the CeNTech scientists Prof. Wolfram Pernice and Prof. Carsten Schuck.

BMBF grant for CeNTech start-up Pixel Photonics

Pixel Photonics and the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (WWU) have received a joint research grant of roughly 2.6 million EUR from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to develop a new generation of high-speed quantum key distribution (QKD) systems. Within the QSAMIS project Pixel Photonics and the WWU will develop a new type of ultrafast QKD system with significantly increased data rates in the Gbit/s regime, serving as a building block for large-scale QKD networks and providing data security to critical sectors such as government, healthcare and finance. QSAMIS is part of the BMBF call "Enabling Start-up Unternehmensgründungen in den Quantentechnologien und der Photonik".
