Latest DUST Identity News

Quantum-Engineered Diamond Dust Used to Track and Authenticate Parts & Components for Supply Chain Security

Jun 10, 2020

Quantum-Engineered Diamond Dust Used to Track and Authenticate Parts & Components for Supply Chain Security Home » News » Quantum-Engineered Diamond Dust Used to Track and Authenticate Parts & Components for Supply Chain Security (Built-In) MIT Research Labs alumni have developed a high-tech countermeasure to supply chain vulnerabilities. DUST Identity has created a system that uses the quantum properties of low-cost, unclonable diamond dust to track and authenticate parts and components. The roots of DUST’s solution lie in quantum computing. The most prominent method of quantum processing uses superconductors — that’s where IBM and Google are focused — but researchers have also found promising results with qubit systems based on nitrogen-vacancy diamonds. Diamonds happen to have very unique physical attributes that are associated with being able to hold qubits for a relatively long time at room temperature. The same property in diamonds that allows quantum information to be carried — the NV center — can also in effect create a sensor. DUST relies on the same kind of “quantum-engineered” diamonds that quantum computing researchers continue to investigate. The commercial potential became clearer for DUST Identity co-founder Ophir Gaathon and his colleagues — DUST co-founders Jonathan Hodges and Dirk Englund, who currently leads the university’s Quantum Photonics Laboratory — especially as they developed the software and hardware to “talk” to the diamonds, namely a scanner system that leverages that magnetic resonance, and records and verifies nanodiamond distribution and orientation patterns. DUST has generated interest and investment in a way that mirrors the landscape described in overviews like the GAO report — an intersection of national security and commercial interest, from both consumer safety and brand value perspectives.DARPA took notice and has invested $2 million in the project. Airbus Ventures and Lockheed Martin Ventures both contributed to a $10 million Series A investment round last year, Latest Reports 888-384-7144
