Speaker:  Jamil Abo-Shaeer, CEO & Co-Founder, Vector Atomic

Title: Quantum technology for the real world

Abstract: Quantum sensors will broadly impact industries including transportation and logistics, telecommunications, aerospace, defense, and geophysical exploration. They offer transformative performance gains over conventional technologies; atomic clocks are precise to 1 second in 50 billion years. However, these laboratory devices are large, fragile, and expensive. Commercial quantum devices require redesign from the ground up with a focus on real-world operability. This talk will cover the practical challenges of developing quantum sensors and clocks and highlight Vector Atomic’s recent demonstrations of these technologies outside of the laboratory.

Bio: Dr. Jamil Abo-Shaeer is the CEO of Vector Atomic, which he co-founded in 2018 to build quantum-based clocks and inertial sensors for navigation, telecommunications, climate science, agriculture, and geophysical exploration. Prior to Vector Atomic, Dr. Abo-Shaeer held positions within the government and private industry. At DARPA, he managed quantum technology projects focused on navigation, material simulation, and biomedical imaging. Dr. Abo-Shaeer has a BA and PhD in Physics from UC Berkeley and MIT, respectively.
