SPIE Quantum West and QED-C to co-host SPIE Quantum West
Event March 6
BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA – SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, announces the program for its inaugural industry-focused SPIE Quantum West conference 6-11 March. Organized in partnership with the Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C, managed by SRI International), Quantum West will be held online during the SPIE Photonics West Digital Forum.
Attendance at Quantum West is free to all registered participants of SPIE Photonics West, but registration is required.
The four sessions will provide a wide range of opportunities to learn more about the role of photonics in the development of quantum technology as quantum moves from research and development to engineering products for the commercial marketplace, while building mainstream infrastructures and supply chains. Speakers’ topics include “Quantum Technology as an Enabler,” “Photonics’ Roles in Superconducting Quantum Computing,” and “Building an Industry: Lessons Learned from a Half-Century of Growth in the Photonics Industry.” The four-day event, co-hosted by QED-C Deputy Director Celia Merzbacher and ColdQuanta Executive Chairman and DRS Daylight Solutions Senior Vice President Tim Day, will also include a market report from the Boston Consulting Group.
