QCTech Center

Promoted by a team of the University of Vigo with long-standing experience in integrated photonics, quantum criptography and space communications, the Center for Quantum Communications Technology, QCTech, will be formally established during 2021. The research center is expected to develop theoretical and experimental work in quantum communications, applied to both aerospace and terrestrial. R&D efforts

Coming soon

Coming in January, the DriveInPhotonics project create its own linkedIn, to be closer than ever to everyone.


QOPHI Lab is currently hosting all the ESRs in the DRIVE-In project. QOPHI Lab is an experimental facility, provided with capacity for RF and DC measurements of photonics integrated circuits, with office space and located at the EI Telecomunicacion / atlanTTic Research Center at the University of Vigo. ESRs will develop their respective research packages
