Quantum Computing announces prototype sale to Johns Hopkins University

Quantum Computing Inc (NASDAQ: QUBT), a quantum optics and nanophononics technology company, said on Tuesday that it had sold its quantum LiDAR prototype to Johns Hopkins University.

Valued at $200,000, the prototype will be used for testing and evaluation within Johns Hopkins’ esteemed research and development program.

The company’s quantum LiDAR system delivers exceptional precision, with a resolution of 3mm and the ability to operate at depths of up to 30 meters beneath the water’s surface.

“Our state-of-the-art underwater scanning LiDAR system is engineered with cutting-edge single-photon detection technology, coupled with a green laser at a wavelength of 532nm. The selection of green light is strategic for its superior ability to penetrate water, ensuring our system captures the most detailed and accurate underwater images possible. The integration of single-photon detection enhances sensitivity to an exceptional degree, enabling us to discern and measure faint signals bounced back by single photons,” Jeevanandha Ramanathan, Research Scientist and leader of Quantum Remote Sensing platform at Quantum Computing Inc, said in a press release.
