The company

Who we are

Qnami is a VC-backed high-tech company with its roots at the Physics Department of the University of Basel in Switzerland. We develop quantum sensors for applications where the highest precision is required, from science to electronics to healthcare. Our goal is to support the development of technologies that improve people’s quality of life. Qnami is an equal opportunity employer and offers a dynamic and multi-cultural environment made of passionate people.

Management team


    Mathieu holds a PhD from the Institute Néel in Grenoble.  Over the last ten years, he has developed expert knowledge on nano and quantum technologies as well as semiconductor materials. He is a member of the strategic commitee of the European Quantum Flagship program, where he represents the quantum start-up ecosystem. Mathieu also has a passion for art and design and likes to mix it with technology.


    Felipe is an expert in Material Science with extensive hands-on experience. During his PhD at the University of Stuttgart, he developed innovative processes to improve the quality of quantum sensors in ultra-pure diamond. The resulting tools and fabrication methods are already being used in research groups all around the world. Felipe likes challenges and cutting-edge R&D with applied prospects.


    Patrick is a professor at the University of Basel and the leader of the quantum sensing group. He obtained his PhD from ETH Zurich in 2008 and moved to Harvard where he contributed to the early development of quantum sensing. In 2012 he established his group in Basel and soon received the prestigious SNSF starting grant. He is driven by a deep curiosity for scientific problems and the desire to develop tools that go beyond conventional limits and allow new exploration.


    Alexander has unparalleled know-how at the interface between hardware, software and quantum technologies. He received his PhD from the Technical University of Denmark where he developed measurement protocols for quantum sensing applications. Alex has a sweet spot for technology in general. He developed home-made solutions going from 3D printing, to smart houses, to open-source code. But his number one challenge remains to boost the next generation of electronics with quantum tech.
