Alphanov, the optics and lasers technology center of the Route des Lasers cluster, and MuQuans, a start-up company specialized in high precision instruments based on cold atom technology, have announced an agreement for technology transfer. This agreement concerns fiber laser sources emitting at 780 nm, developed by Alphanov’s R&D. With this transfer, MuQuans can now manufacture these lasers used to cool a cloud of atoms trapped in a vacuum chamber to a temperature close to absolute zero. It is on this principle of quantum physics that MuQuans developed a range of high-tech instruments capable of measuring gravity with extreme precision or provide time references with unrivaled stability and accuracy. This technology transfer allows MuQuans to accelerate the launch of its products and Alphanov to fulfill its role in supporting photonics start-ups and in developing industrial activity of the Route des Lasers cluster.
