Nano Dimension, a provider of 3D printers for additively manufactured electronics (“AME”) and multidimensional additive manufacturing from polymers, metals and ceramics, announced that it has sold a DragonFly IV system to the University of Stuttgart.
The system will go to the Institute for Intelligent Sensors (IIS) and the 3rd Institute of Physics (PI3). Both are working on the development and integration of next-generation quantum devices as part of the government-funded Cluster4Future QSens program. They are collaborating with 19 industrial partners and three research institutes to advance the industrial use of quantum sensors.
The DragonFly IV enables the simultaneous deposition of conductive and dielectric substances and the integration of in-situ components. It thus opens up new possibilities for microelectronic and photonic integration of the next generation of scalable quantum devices.
Professor Jens Anders, Institute Director of the I I S at the University of Stuttgart and spokesperson for QSens, shared, “We are excited to bring the DragonFly IV with its worldwide unique capabilities into our research. The integration of qubits for quantum sensing and quantum computing is high-demanding in nature, requiring innovative, high-precision solutions; therefore, it is not often that we find technology that meets our challenging needs. Engaging with Nano Dimension will help us design and manufacture the next generation of scalable quantum devices, which will revolutionize our society with applications ranging from smart prostheses and smart breath sensors over pharmaceutical research to autonomous driving.”
Yoav Stern, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nano Dimension, added, “We look forward to supporting the University of Stuttgart and their Center of Applied Quantum Technology in their ever-critical work on quantum technology. Furthermore, we are pleased that another customer has come to appreciate the value of AME to drive innovation. This is particularly empowering when the work at-hand is the scalable integration of qubits for quantum sensing and computing. This field is perfect use case for our AME system, DragonFly IV, which can be used to make specialty electronic devices with the design freedom and shorter innovation cycles of additive manufacturing.”
