When nano dreams big: Deep-tech entrepreneurship in Cambridge”.

Jean de la Verpilliere is the cofounder of Echion Technologies, a recent spin-out company from the Engineering Department developing fast-charging batteries for electric vehicles. He will share the story of Echion Tech to date, starting from a drawing in a PhD student’s lab book to a funded company playing in the top league alongside multinationals. Based on this journey he will share insights on how to best build a deep-tech startup in Cambridge and his point of view on the role of nanotechnology in the battery industry.

Research at the Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory: New computing paradigms and biosensing.

Research at the Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory: New computing paradigms and biosensing. In this talk, I will introduce the research side of Hitachi Ltd. and more particularly its main vehicle for the exploration of fundamental physics, the Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory. At HCL , we develop innovative solutions for next generation computing and biosensing based on fundamental research on spintronics and quantum physics. For computing we explore novel paradigms such as quantum and neuromorphic computing based on silicon transistor technology and antiferromagnetic spintronics, respectively. For biosensing, we focus on resonant photonic cavities in combination with selective chemistry for the detection of pathogens in human fluids.

Dr. Fernando Gonzalez Zalba is the Head of the Quantum Information Group and Senior Research Scientist at the Hitachi-Cambridge Laboratory, part of the R&D section of Hitachi Europe Ltd. Moreover he is a visiting researcher at the Department of Physics and a Research Fellow at Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge. Also he holds a Research Associateship position at University College London. He currently investigates how to reduce the energy consumption of information and communication technologies using new electronic devices based on quantum phenomena. His main line of research focuses on the development of a scalable hardware based on silicon for the processing and storage of quantum information.
