SuperQ announces high-temperature superconducting single photon detector

Dr Nagendra Nagaraja, Founder, CEO and Chairman of Qpi Technology and founder of SuperQ, announced details about the products. SuperQ technologies India Private limited, which is a subsidiary of Qpi Technology, comes out of stealth mode with CeNSE (Centre of nano Sciences, IISc) But Dr Nagendra Nagaraja suggests, “With our expertise in Quantum computing and Materials, we may fundamentally redesign motors to make it work with high temperature superconductors. Dr Amlan Mukherjee, Director and Technical lead at SuperQ, suggested, “Current SSPD is way costlier for commercial applications With our high temperature SSPD operating at 11k+, we can bring down cost significantly and hence making product viable for Quantum network, telecom applications and medical application. During scaling of the products, funding is expected to come from initial advances from customers, funding from Qpi technology and working capital loans. , Also they work at 2.5K, which keeps cost of these SSPDs at around 100K USD.
