Vescent Photonics: From garage startup to Quantum 2.0

Abstract: Eduardo Otezia, Ph.D., will present how Vescent Photonics grew from a startup company to become one of the leading designers and manufacturers of lasers, electro-optic tools, and control electronics used in precision optical measurements. Eduardo will provide an overview of their laboratory and field-deployable products which enable state-of-the-art timing, time transfer, frequency transfer, quantum computing, precision navigation in both GPS-enabled & GPS-denied environments, next-generation spectroscopic techniques, and a host of other applications propelled by Quantum 2.0.  Eduardo will spend the second half of his talk in a more informal session with students, describing some internship and job opportunities available at Vescent for 2023. Undergraduate and graduate students interested in joining a quantum company that has knowledge in circuits, photonics, mechanical systems, and software programming should be sure to attend and bring their questions.

Bio: Eduardo Oteiza is Eastern US Sales and Business Development Manager at Vescent Photonics.  He earned his Ph.D. at Harvard University in AMO physics and has spent his career working for large and small laser manufacturers with an eye toward enabling new ideas in the research world and applying them to real-world applications.  A science geek at heart, he enjoys talking about science and continuing to learn about new discoveries from researchers across the country.  Tell him what’s cool about what you do!
