2022 Science Breakthrough | Venture 2022 2022 Winner | Venture Science Breakthrough Winner Science Start-ups (Falling Walls Venture)

QphoX is developing the world’s first Quantum Modem, a breakthrough device that will allow the quantum computing industry to scale through connectivity and parallelization and unlock the potential of the Quantum Internet. Quantum computing allows for certain complex, intractable problems to be solved, using classical processing technology and has the potential to transform fields like cybersecurity, AI, and big data research.

By creating remote entanglement links between distantly separated quantum processors, QphoX presents the first viable solution for scaling the performance of today’s most advanced quantum computers. With the accelerating pace of development of both optical quantum networks and microwave quantum processors, QphoX’s Quantum Modem will play an indispensable role in bridging these technologies, serving as the gateway to the Quantum Internet.

Simon Gröblacher is the CEO and Co-Founder of the quantum startup company QphoX and Professor of Quantum Physics at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology. He holds a PhD in Physics from the University of Vienna and worked as a Marie Curie fellow at the California Institute of Technology. His scientific research is focused on understanding the foundations of quantum physics. He has published several seminal findings on quantum effects in macroscopic systems.
