Who are we

QuantIC is the UK Quantum Technology Hub in Quantum Enhanced Imaging. We bring together industry and academia in a collaborative venture to revolutionise imaging across industrial, scientific and consumer markets.

Established in 2014, we are one of four Hubs that are part of the Government’s National Quantum Technology Programme set up to exploit the potential of quantum science and develop a range of emerging technologies.

We do this through:

  • Facilitating collaborations. Our Partnership Resource Fund supports industry-led projects and two-way staff secondments.
  • Industrial PhD Studentships. We have a pipeline of talented individuals working on research projects designed to develop both academic and technical excellence in the next generation of quantum engineers.
  • Providing a dedicated innovation space. Companies can work alongside our researchers to develop new technology prototypes.

Our Vision

Our vision is to pioneer a family of multidimensional cameras operating across a range of wavelengths, time-scales, length-scales, creating a new industrial landscape for imaging systems and their applications in the UK.

Our University Partners

QuantIC’s investigating team and their groups represent over 120 full-time researchers in quantum technology across eight partner institutions.

This portfolio of fundamental research funded by a variety of sources, including EPSRC, STFC, the Royal Society, DARPA and European Commission, provides a technology pipeline to feed the Hub’s innovation programme.

The Hub’s University partners lead a number of EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) including: Sensor and Imaging Systems; Applied Photonics; Medical Devices & Health Technologies; and Quantum Engineering.
