Technology

QuantIC’s new technology is realised through four interlinked work packages. The first three work packages cover system development, focusing on, respectively, quantum imaging with correlations (Work Package 1), timing (Work Package 2) and squeezing (Work Package 3). All this will build on a set of underpinning component technologies in Work Package 4.

More details on the different work packages can be found below:

Work Package 1 – Imaging with Correlation
Work Package 2 – Imaging with Timing
Work Package 3 – Imaging with Squeezing
Work Package 4 – Sources and Detector Technologies

The Hub’s HEI partners lead a number of new EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) including: Sensor and Imaging Systems(Glasgow/Edinburgh); Applied Photonics (Heriot-Watt); Medical Devices & Health Technologies (Strathclyde); and Quantum Engineering (Bristol).

Our international reach is enhanced both by partnerships with the Max-Planck Society and Fraunhofer UK.
