Quantum technologies for the application on a nanosatellite
Point of Contact


Within the cooperation project QUEEN, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HUB), Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) as well as the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH) are analysing optical quantum technologies regarding their usability in space within a nanosatellite mission.

Regarding the payload, the focus is on microintegrated diode laser systems as well as electro-optical components as part of optical frequency reference units. Another objective is the analysis and definition of a nanosatellite platform to support the application of these technologies in space.

Such quantum technologies offer the potential of improved SWaP budgets and could therefore help to reduce size and cost of future space missions by replacing currently applied technologies.
