Product development and technology advisory

Taking you beyond what is possible today

Quantum technologies are set to disrupt many industries by unlocking new capabilities – in medical imaging, end-of-line testing, inertial navigation or underground detection for example. 

We accelerate the commercialisation journey of quantum technologies and spot opportunities where existing industries will benefit. 

TTP’s world-class scientists are steeped in quantum technology, and our engineers cover all other specialisms needed for successful product development.

Our services

Product development

We accelerate the commercialisation journey of quantum technologies. Our expertise in both quantum technology and product development gives confidence in robust solutions.

Technology advisory

We identify threats and opportunities where quantum technologies can make a difference in existing industries. We provide evidence-based insight into technological readiness, timescales and the art of possible. 

Quantum technologies team

TTP’s dedicated quantum technologies team has high-level training in quantum physics, with particular experience in quantum optics, quantum computing, atomic physics, laser cooling molecules, quantum cryptography.  

Members of the team have conducted advanced research in cold atoms and ions and thermal vapours, cryogenic solid state quantum physics, advanced spectroscopic techniques, and single and entangled photon creation and manipulation. 

In addition, our team has experience in the following enabling techniques for quantum technologies. 

  • Optics: ultrafast optics; photon correlations; optical microcavities; integrated photonics; custom lens design, simulation and fabrication (refractive and diffractive); using, building and characterising cryogenic single photon detectors 
  • Fabrication: production of MEMS devices; focussed ion beam milling of mirrors for high finesse microcavities; semiconductor fabrication and characterisation including cryogenics, vacuum systems and clean-room lithography
  • Modelling: simulation of complex quantum systems using bespoke finite element simulations; COMSOL modelling of superconductors for practical applications
  • Cryogenics: liquid helium and dilution refrigeration experience
  • RF electronics: RF phase locking of electro-optics devices, ASIC design, optical modulation by RF signal 

Focus areas

Quantum Sensing

Quantum sensors exploit superposition and entanglement to detect magnetic fields and acceleration with unprecedent precision. We engineer proof-of-concept technologies into prototypes or products that are robust, low in cost and certifiable in the target market. 

TTP develops sensors for automotive, medical and gas sensing applications 

Quantum Communications

Quantum key distribution (QKD) and random number generation (QRNG) can avoid the vulnerabilities of purely mathematical cryptography. Solutions from academia are now readily available. We can solve the challenges of cost and scalability in implementation.

Quantum Computing

With a shift in how companies approach problems, quantum computing can transform industries by solving previously intractable classes of problems. We bring both in-depth knowledge of quantum and real-world insight to bear on the problems faced by a range of industries. 

TTP’s work in AI and Machine Learning in healthcare


Quantum imaging exploits advanced quantum mechanics or takes advantage of existing quantum-enabling devices. Either way, imaging by measuring the previously unmeasurable will impact a wide range of industries.
