Quantum Foundry orders Veeco MBE system
GEN20-Q system will enable development of fault-tolerant quantum computing hardware
Veeco Instruments has received an order from Quantum Foundry Copenhagen P/S, based in Denmark for multiple GEN20 MBE Systems. Quantum Foundry is scheduled to receive the multi-process module system next year.
The GEN20-Q MBE system, a purpose-built GEN20 MBE reactor designed for the growth of quantum technologies, was selected to enable the development of fault-tolerant quantum computing hardware to support life science and biological applications.
“We are excited to start a fruitful and long-term engagement with Veeco on the development of fabrication systems for ultra-pure quantum processor materials,” said Peter Krogstrup, professor and executive director of the Quantum Foundry Copenhagen. “Veeco has over many years delivered high quality and reliable products and they have a deep understanding of the importance of solutions for enabling ultra-high purity. This, and the ability to scale production, has been the main reason for Quantum Foundry Copenhagen to partner with Veeco on central aspects of our cutting-edge epitaxy technology.”
Veeco’s GEN20-Q MBE system, built on the production-prove GEN20 platform, uses a tailored design to support research and production of multiple quantum computing techniques including superconductive materials, spintronics, high-speed optical modulation, and trapped-ion. The system is said to incorporate production design technology allowing direct scalability to Veeco’s multi-wafer high-volume manufacturing MBE systems.
