Barcelona, November 7 - LuxQuanta attends the Smart City Expo World Congress 23 at the iconic city of Barcelona, in a booth together with the Instiute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and Quside. 

Quantum Point: LuxQuanta, Quside & ICFO 
Our presence at the congress was defined by ICFO's active engagement in the Catalonia Space, at a joint booth featuring LuxQuanta and Quside, ICFO's spin-off dedicated to Quantum technologies. LuxQuanta primarily focuses on the development and commercialization of CV-QKD, while Quside leads in Quantum Random Number Generation (QRNG) systems. Notably, QRNG modules developed by Quside are integral components in LuxQuanta systems.

The booth, named "Quantum Point," served as the central reference point for attendees seeking more information about Quantum technologies. Employees and delegates from each company provided insights into current technologies, ongoing developments, and the potential significance of these technologies for businesses navigating the conference landscape.

ICFO's Showcase: Photonics & Quantum Technology
As a globally renowned research center in photonics, ICFO effectively showcased its expertise through an immersive audiovisual experience. The primary objective was to communicate and demonstrate to the audience the pivotal role of photonics in current technological advancements. Moreover, during the experience one could understand the future significance of quantum technology in the years to come, all with a sincere desire to spark curiosity and promote Quantum Initiatives on a global scale.

People form the Givernment of catalonia inside the immersive experience made by ICFO.

As ICFO states:
"The 'demo' invites visitors to explore the past, present and future of photonic and quantum technologies and discover, through everyday scenes such as an online purchase, the charging of an electric vehicle or the tele-diagnosis of a sports injury, how this innovative field will evolve over the coming years to bring benefits such as ultra-secure and fast communication, medical treatments and diagnoses in real time with revolutionary devices and technologies, and more efficient, sustainable and clean mobility."
