Sparrow Quantum Receives 31 Million Danish Kroner ($4.5M USD) in Initial Funding
Quantum Sparrow, located in Copenhagen Denmark, is a provider of single photon components for quantum applications and technologies. The company is a spin-off of the Niels Bohr Institute’s Quantum Photonics Lab in Copenhagen, Denmark. The funding, which is by far the largest in a Danish quantum firm, is being led by a venture capital firm 2xN with the additional participation of LIFTT And European Innovation Council (EIC). The current product is a high-performance single photon source that can generate a stream of photons at a rate of 20 million per second. It is made by a 3mm x 3mm InAs/GaAS chip which has a quantum dot structure embedded in a photonic crystal waveguide. These devices can be used in photonic quantum computers as well as in the quantum internet. News release from Sparrow Quantum announcing funding is accessible Here.
