Nano Dimension Ltd. has sold its DragonFly IV system to the University of Stuttgart in Germany. Nano Dimension’s advanced 3D printer for electronics will go to the University’s Institute of Smart Sensors (IIS) and 3rd Institute of Physics (PI3). The two groups are jointly working on the design and the integration of next-generation quantum devices as part of a government-sponsored program, Cluster4Future QSens (“QSens”).

The University of Stuttgart groups are working together with 19 industrial partners and three research institutes to spearhead the industrial use of quantum sensors to target a large-scale market entry within the next 3 to 5 years.

The DragonFly IV is made for specialty applications for high-performance-electronic-devices (Hi-PEDs) by simultaneously depositing conductive and dielectric substances, while integrating in-situ capacitors, antennas, coils, transformers, and electromechanical components. These Hi-PEDs are enablers for applications, including autonomous intelligent drones, cars, satellites, smartphones and in vivo medical devices.

These products enable iterative development, IP safety, fast time to market, and device performance gains. In the context of quantum technologies, the 3D-electronic-integration capabilities of the Dragonfly IV will enable possibilities for the microelectronic and photonic integration of the next generation of scalable quantum devices.

“We are excited to bring the DragonFly® IV with its worldwide unique capabilities into our research,” says Professor Jens Anders, institute director of the IIS at the University of Stuttgart and spokesperson for QSens. “The integration of qubits for quantum sensing and quantum computing is high-demanding in nature, requiring innovative, high-precision solutions; therefore, it is not often that we find technology that meets our challenging needs.”

“We look forward to supporting the University of Stuttgart and their Center of Applied Quantum Technology in their ever-critical work on quantum technology,” Yoav Stern, chairman and chief executive officer of Nano Dimension, adds. “This field is perfect use case for our AME system, DragonFly® IV, which can be used to make specialty electronic devices with the design freedom and shorter innovation cycles of additive manufacturing.”
