Quantum technologies will transform encryption, computing, sensing and change many aspects of our lives. At Redwave Labs, we’re working with partners at the forefront of quantum technology to provide the control electronics to bring the science to real life applications. Working with the most advanced academic groups, innovative start-ups and industry leaders within projects part-funded by Innovate UK, we’ve developed a time tagger, a photon counter, coil driver, Rb heater and digital temperature controller that are commercially available from our shop. We also have an affordable lab control instrument capable of driving two lasers, temperature controllers, RF and piezo with a powerful GUI (contact us for more information on this).
An exciting part of our current research is developing a rack mounted PXIe control system platform for instrumentation. This modular system will be ideally suited to instrumentation across all quantum technology applications, with blades to control lasers, data acquisition, high-speed lock, time tagger and photon counter.
We bring our experience of OEM development to all our R&D and all our products are customisable. A great example of this is our Universal Platform, an OEM unit that can control several lasers, data acquisition cards, temperature and pressure controllers synchronously for spectroscopic applications. We’re adding line lock and offset lock cards to this for quantum instrumentation – please get in touch to find out more.
Innovate UK collaborations
We’re collaborating with high profile partners in several projects to bring quantum technologies beyond the laboratory to commercial reality.
- In HYDRI, we’re working with a consortium led by BP to develop quantum sensors enabling the safe rollout of hydrogen.
- In USPIS, we’re working on underwater single photon imaging supporting the installation and operation of offshore wind energy
- In High Bias2 we’re helping to accelerate quantum sensing.
- And in the QT assemble project , we’re helping to tackle challenges of size, weight, power and reliability.
