Qnami

Event Supporting: Symposium – Imaging Magnetic Textures at the Nanoscale

Qnami is a VC-backed high-tech company with its roots at the Physics Department of the University of Basel in Switzerland. It develops fundamental new technology using quantum mechanics. The control of the state of a single electron enables measurement with a precision that was never achieved before. The technique is called quantum sensing and Qnami is enthusiastically developing it to improve people’s lives and the world. Extensive academic research and deep knowledge build the ground for all that Qnami does. With this technology, Qnami is redefining the common understanding of precision. Qnami offers an open team culture of mutual respect and intercultural understanding which is both business and scientific minded.

GMW Associates

Event Supporting: Best Poster Award

GMW began operations in 1982 in Redwood City, California. Hilton Glavish, Barry MacKinnon and Ian Walker, from the defunct New Zealand company ANAC, came to the US to support their existing North American customers. The company quickly moved from solely Lab Electromagnets into instrumentation, getting into the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) business with the founding of Metrolab Technology in the mid 80’s. Accelerator Physics and MRI drove growth throughout the 80’s and into the 90’s, with the Superconducting Supercollider (SSC) cancellation in 1993 allowing the company to further diversify into additional markets. GMW moved to our current location in San Carlos in 1991, and has expanded our Industrial Road facility three times since, now having 13,000 square feet and adding state-of-the art measuring equipment in magnetic field and electric current.
