Muquans, founded in 2011, is a high-tech company specialized in high performance gravity sensing, time & frequency applications and laser solutions. Muquans has developed a unique expertise to bring quantum technologies to an appropriate level of technological maturity, and exploit their potential for operational use in various fields of applications.

Our solutions are the result of a long-term research effort initiated by our academic partners, LNE-SYRTE and LP2N, that demonstrated the competitive advantage offered by quantum technologies for various types of applications. Since its creation, Muquans has developed tight connections with the academic world, as well as a unique expertise to bring the most sophisticated concepts to the Technology Readiness Level required for an operational exploitation.

The company is managed by its three original founders:
