Qpi Technology’s subsidiary, SuperQ Technologies India Pvt Ltd., has signed an MoU with IIT-Cryogenic Kharagpur’s Engineering Department to speed up its research into superconductors.
A next-generation research and product development firm led by SuperQ’s founder and CEO, Dr. Nagendra Nagaraja, aims to develop and deploy superconducting device technology at an industry-scale. The development of new superconducting-based products will open up new opportunities in a wide range of industries. Health care, power generation, energy storage, and distribution are some examples of these fields. Another is high-energy physics, while a third is quantum computing
According to Professor Abhay Singh Gour of IIT- Kharagpur’s, the SuperQ team plans on speeding up research and development to ensure that Superconductor-based products are more quickly commercially viable and deployed. At SuperQ, we believe that high temperature superconductors have enormous potential and applications in many areas of quantum circuits, quantum networks, electric vehicles (EVs), smart city grids, electrification, and medicine. With this partnership with IIT-Kharagpur, we hope to realize our vision and put our product roadmap into action with early customers by the end of the fiscal year (FY22). To Prof Abhay Singh Gour at the Indian Institute of Technology, we owe our gratitude.
IIT-KGP will continue to work on superconducting cables and tapes as well as fault current limiters while SuperQ’s SSPD product is scaled up for production. The partnership between IIT-KGP and SuperQ has officially been inaugurated, according to SuperQ Material Researcher Dr. Balaji Sompalle. The IIT-work KGP’s in superconductivity and cryogenics has long been known to the scientific community. To build a whole ecosystem for innovation, industrial competitiveness, and convergence, we at SuperQ are going to accelerate research into building superconducting devices. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to work together.
Research in superconductivity and cryotechnologies is limited and slow in India according to SuperQ’s Dr. Manjunath G. In the field of superconducting materials and their applications, our collaboration will speed up research and development at a lower cost to humanity.
Work with IIT-KGP will only help us get there sooner, agrees Dr. Purnima Sethi, Fabrication Research Scientist at SuperQ. “We have a role to play in building the future of next generation superconductor-based technologies.
Pinakin Padalia, QpiAI’s Director of Quantum Circuits, said the agreement would be beneficial for both research and industrial development of superconducting solutions.
In accordance with the agreement, Prof. Abhay Singh Gour will provide the SuperQ team with a superconductivity certification program. SuperQ offers internships and joint research proposals to students who want to take their laboratory research to the next level.
Professor Amlan Mukherjee of QpiAI said, “Superconductivity is a remarkable quantum phenomenon that promises to unleash an enormous number of technological innovations and applications.” Until now, there has been very little industry participation in this area in India. We are making progress and laying the foundation for the quantum future because of the Memorandum of Understanding we signed with IIT-KGP.
In their respective fields of work, both SuperQ and IIT-KGP are excited about how this partnership will bring a paradigm shift and navigate advancements in the superconducting domain.
