We are a global leader and partner of choice for quantum technology.


M Squared Innovation is turning ground-breaking new ideas into commercial reality. We are developing new products, applications and markets while also pushing the boundaries of fundamental science. In doing so, we are collaborating with universities, companies and governmental agencies across a broad range of disciplines including quantum technologies, biophotonics and chemical sensing.


The best examples of the impact of our innovations can be seen in our work developing practical quantum technologies, novel microscopes for neuroscience and regenerative medicine (biophotonics) and new threat detection equipment for the security and defence sector (chemical sensing). Our success in open innovation has been recognised with a number of international awards including The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.


M Squared, a global leader in quantum technology, has played a significant role in shaping the quantum landscape for over a decade. We design high-end lasers for quantum experimentation and engineer quantum components, systems and sensors for ‘real-world’ applications that will radically transform whole sectors and contribute to improving our society.


Our interdisciplinary innovation team consists of more than 30 scientists (24 PhD qualified), engineers and project managers with highly diverse backgrounds. Having successfully delivered more than 150 research projects, the team is experienced in quickly taking ideas from concept to product. This is supported by an agile and collaborative work environment and a constant drive to learn and solve new challenges.


M Squared has a long-standing history collaborating with the academic research community and helping to commercialise novel science. Our work includes letters of support, joint research grants, staff training, knowledge transfer, as well as exploitation planning, and intellectual property licensing.
