Quantum Computing Research Projects Lead NIST’s 2024 SBIR Phase I Funding

Research and development work on new products related to quantum computing were among the 12 projects that the National Institute of Standards and Technology has selected to receive 2024 funding under its Small Business Innovation Research program’s Phase I. 

The selected SBIR projects include the quantum waveguide infrared photodetector of EMode Photonix from Boulder, Colorado, which received $100,000. Another Boulder awardee and also with a $100,000 award, Icarus Quantum, will work on enhancing the efficiency of quantum dot technologies for quantum light generation.

Competitively selected based on the institute’s technical research needs, the Phase I awardees will seek to establish their projects’ feasibility and commercial potential. After completing Phase I, the awardees are entitled to seek Phase II funding of up to $400,000 each to continue their R&D initiatives, NIST said Wednesday   

The  NIST’s SBIR awards, which granted a total of over $1.2 million in funding, also included projects in such critical areas as health care, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and semiconductor manufacturing. 

For semiconductor R&D, AMAG Consulting of Schenectady, New York, was awarded $100,000 for its project on advanced path analysis simulation software.
