Talk 11699-13: "Low-noise and high-power laser systems for quantum computing"
Dr Joseph Thom presents our recent developments in atom-laser interaction-based architecture for quantum computing in his talk “Low-noise and high-power laser systems for quantum computing” - available on-demand on the OPTO Quantum Computation session. Authors: Joseph Thom, Craig Picken, Gareth T. Maker, Nils Hempler, Graeme P. A. Malcolm, M Squared Lasers Ltd. (United Kingdom) Abstract: Quantum computing architectures where atom-laser interactions form the basis of qubit manipulation, such as trapped ion and Rydberg systems, are leading the progress towards universal quantum computation. M Squared is developing many of the advanced laser systems that are underpinning this progress, including systems that are designed to implement quantum logic gates with optical and hyperfine qubits with high fidelity. High power systems that are enabling the scaling of qubit numbers are also being developed. These systems are described, along with an account of how the requirements of lasers for quantum computing experiments are expected to evolve in the future.

Talk 11700-5: "Commercial quantum sensors using atom interferometry and laser sources for precision metrology"
Dr Joseph Thom explains how we are leveraging atom interferometry for quantum gravimeters and accelerometers in his talk “Commercial quantum sensors using atom interferometry and laser sources for precision metrology” - available on-demand at the OPTO Optical and Quantum Sensing and Precision Metrology session. Authors: Joseph Thom, Craig Picken, Jonathan Malcolm, Andrew Kelly, Xiaxi Cheng, Andrew Hinton, Alex Bunting, Gareth Maker, Nils Hempler, Graeme Malcolm, M Squared Lasers Ltd. (United Kingdom) Abstract: M Squared is developing quantum sensors for quantum gravimetry and inertial navigation. Using atom interferometry, each promises performance advantages over their classical counterparts. Each system is designed for use in the challenging operational environment of a moving platform, and incorporates active systems that compensate for the effects of environmental noise. Each sensor is presented along with a performance evaluation in laboratory settings and in field trials. An account is also given on how M Squared laser systems are being used to enable some of the world’s most advanced precision metrology experiments.

Growing team in the US with a new office in Boston
M Squared is growing in the USA. We have a new and larger office in Boston (MA), a strategic location to link between our customers and collaborators in North America and our headquarters in Scotland. In 2020 and continuing into 2021, we have grown our US presence substantially with a local service team and operation team in the US. We are currently setting up a new lab to expand our ability to provide faster repair service and perform R&D. With our new Innovation Ambassador for the US and Canada, we also are engaging with the photonics and quantum community in order to strengthen our scientific presence and foster research and innovation partnerships. Globally, M Squared is also growing: our office in Berlin, Germany, continues to expand, with growing local service, commercial and innovation teams. Chat with our US team during the conference.
