Welcome to QuantIC’s resources page. Discover more information to view and download on our technologies, industry projects and general information about us.
QuantIC researchers are using the extreme single-photon sensitivity of SPAD arrays and photon-timing information to image objects hidden from view and around corners.
QuantIC are exploring techniques to get the most information possible out of available photons using classical regularization algorithms, and computational approaches such as fast Hadamard transforms.
QuantIC is researching the additional functionalities that only
quantum mechanics can provide, such as covertness and
secrecy, in the context of sensing and imaging.
Shot noise is an issue for imaging applications, especially in low light. Now imagine a light source that is even cleaner than a laser that can be engineered to suppress noise to below the shot noise limit. That’s “Q”.
Imagine using your mobile phone to predict volcanic eruptions, find oil and gas reservoirs and sense objects buried underground. With Wee-g, this is now possible.
Infrared cameras are used in a variety of industrial applications but they can be expensive with their many millions of pixel arrays. The Single Pixel Camera offers a lower cost alternative using just one pixel.
With QuantICAM, we can construct a high-resolution camera capable of imaging the time-of-arrival of each of the billions of photons emitted from labelled biological cells or reflected by optical radar.
Ultrafast LED illumination capable of projecting patterns used by sensing devices to determine their position accurately and directing them them to undertake tasks.
At QuantIC we are developing low cost camera systems that can image at the invisible terahertz wavelengths opening possible applications from security monitoring and manufacturing inspection to skin cancer detection.
A new medium wavelength infrared sensor based on antimonides technology that will open new applications in biological imaging, security and sensing.
QuantIC is developing a new single photon avalanche detectors (SPADs) using germanium on silicon that can operate at room temparature.
QuantIC is leading the development of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) from single pixel SNSPD devices to large area arrays, and developing next generation
miniaturized cryogenic platforms.
QuantIC’s researchers are working with security company Aralia Systems Ltd to investigate the feasibility of employing an LED visible light system for covert automated video surveillance.
Working with Leonardo, our Single Pixel Camera (SPC) has been adapted to provide range information for every single element in an image in addition to a standard two-dimensional image.
QuantIC is working with Bridgeporth to trial Wee-g with measurements of the local gravity signal around the Cruachan hydroelectric scheme in Argyll.
QuantIC is working with Thales to develop camera systems which enable image detection around a corner or behind a wall.
Horiba, in partnership with QuantIC, is using QuantICAM to obtain a multiplexed version of its existing technology which will enable the full “signature” of a molecular fluorescence signal to be captured.
Working with M-Squared Lasers, QuantIC has developed a low-cost, low power gas detection imaging system that can produce real time video of methane gas.
Working with Lockheed Martin, QuantIC researchers are integrating TeraCAM™ with world-class unmanned aerial vehicles to map water content in a variety of crops (e.g.wheat and barley) using THz aerial imaging.
QuantIC is collaborating with Gas Sensing Solutions to explore fabrication high sensitivity mid-infrared sensing layers to demonstrate the flexibility of our IndiPix technology platform.
