What is quantum industry?
Quantum industry is an ecosystem of companies developing materials, equipment, instrument and tools, but also introducing to the global market quantum products and solutions that aim at a profound impact on modern society. TNO supports the development of quantum industry with testing facilities and engineering experience to help companies in overcoming the engineering challenges of quantum technologies. In particular, TNO provide 4 unique testing and prototyping facilities for commercial partners that want to develop quantum devices and systems.
Quantum Information Technology Testing facility (QITT)
A unique facility in Europe for the testing and validation of cryogenic quantum devices, quantum computing processors, passive and active electronic components, and other sub-systems of quantum computers based on cryogenic solid-state qubits.
