Quantum Opus


Quantum Opus is a small, privately held Limited Liability Company (LLC) located in south-eastern Michigan. In March 2013, Quantum Opus was founded with private capital and the singular goal of producing the world's best superconducting nanowire single-photon detector systems. Notably, Quantum Opus scientists were the first to successfully produce commercial single-photon sensitive devices out of a proprietary, amorphous thin-film superconductor with the very desirable superconducting transition temperature of >5 K. As a result of this high transition temperature, our devices enable the use our Opus One™ cryosystem. The Opus One is a simple, continuously operating, rack-mountable cryosystem that can be installed with up to 32 fiber-coupled detector channels. Each detector has world-leading performance at customer-specified wavelengths, achieving low dark rates (<1 count per second for wavelengths <1000nm, <100 counts per second at 1550nm), high count rates (40 M-counts per second per channel), and high timing resolution (below 100 ps jitter, <60ps with cryogenic amplifiers), all at high efficiencies (>80% at 1550nm, >90% shorter wavelengths). In our fifth year of business, we are excited to release the Opus Two™ cryosystem that will expand cryogenics painlessly into new markets. The Opus Two is the world's first commercial, low power (<300W wall draw), "desktop" cooler for continuous operation at temperatures below 1.8 Kelvin. The Opus Two will enable new applications of superconducting photon detectors, such as microscopy, remote sensing, and free-space optical communication. We are targeting commercial availability in mid-2018.


Located in south Germany, MELEC produces and develops since 1998 DC-Pulse-Controller for plasma applications. With the experience of more than 15 years in power electronics and thin-film technology, MELEC sets standards in RD and industrial applications.MELEC products are utilized for the generations of highly ionized plasma discharges, often called “High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering” or HiPIMS. Our generators have become the standard tool for customers to meet their demanding requirements for pulsed plasma applications.They are designed for the future, having great flexibility and process robustness in mind. The integrated Free Pulse Pattern Generator (FPPG) makes it possible to develop, adjust and stabilize wide ranges of innovative processes.Based on our international patent right registrations, MELEC cooperated with a large number of well-known research-institutes and universities, which are documented in various publications.
