Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology Ltd. has joined its parent company, Oxford Instruments plc, as an industry partner of the Quantum Foundry at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), according to a news release. The company becomes the Quantum Foundry’s 17th industry partner. The foundry, which is the first of its kind in the nation, was founded through the National Science Foundation’s Q-AMASE-i initiative last year to develop materials and interfaces to host the coherent quantum states needed to power quantum-based electronics.

Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology develops nanofabrication solutions used in the manufacture of quantum device platforms, including superconducting qubits diamond nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers, and integrated photonics-based qubits.

“Oxford Instruments is delighted to be part of such a strong consortium at UCSB and to support the development of robust quantum device fabrication processes for applications in computing, communications,” said Ravi Sundaram, head of strategic R&D markets for Oxford Instruments. “We are committed to providing market-leading quantum technology solutions to our customers, and partnering with the Quantum Foundry will ensure we continue to be at the forefront of this developing technology.”

“We are thrilled to have Oxford Instruments on board,” said Tal Margalith, executive director of technology and industrial liaison for the Quantum Foundry. “Their cutting-edge, robust processing solutions tailored for quantum technology device fabrication will help us ensure that there’s an executable road map from academic discovery to commercial applications.”
