A start-up from Stony Brook University is commercializing a device that helps prevent network hacking.

Qunnect’s technology uses quantum memory applications to securely store and transfer information. A device known as a quantum amplifier, developed by Stony Brook researcher Eden Figueroa, enables the transmission of information carried in photons over greater distances.

Qunnect is based in the Stony Brook Incubator Program. According to co-founder Mehdi Namazi, a former Stony Brook doctoral student who helped Figueroa develop the technology, the start-up expects to have its product ready for sale by fall 2019.

“We are currently targeting to enter the market for larger scale quantum-secured communication networks by 2021,” says Namazi.

Qunnect is now seeking grants from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy and other organizations.
