QuantIC Webinar Series

QuantIC will hold an interactive week long webinar series focused on development of new technology.

This webinar series will run as two hour sessions each day and will be chaired by one of our strategic industrial partners. Each day, a new thematic session will present short overviews of QuantIC technology followed by an interactive panel session defining how innovation in Quantum Imaging can open new opportunities for industrial applications. This webinar series will offer industry participants an opportunity to learn more about QuantIC’s technology development programme and influence the direction of our research as well as provide opportunities to develop collaborations with cutting edge researchers.

The webinar series will be complemented by a week-long poster session, which will be open to all those registered for the QuantIC webinars. The format of the poster session is embracing the online philosophy with short and accessible posters, which are easy and quick to browse.

Delivered through Trello (www.Trello.com) the poster session will be open every day 9.00am to 5.00pm from Monday the 1st to Friday the 5th of June, offering guests the opportunity to browse posters and ask questions through a live-chat. In addition, for one hour after each of the daily webinar sessions, the poster presenters will be virtually “standing by their posters” to accept live questions through Zoom. A videoconference session will be open for each poster giving guests the opportunity to “visit” posters and talk to QuantIC researchers.


Register for each day via Eventbrite.

Detector Development

Monday 1 June 14.00 – 16.00

Enhanced detectors underpin many of our demonstrators where increased sensitivity to single- photons at challenging wavelengths and/or higher count rates unlocks pathways to new imaging applications. These sensors will be used across all the sectors covered in these webinar series.

Life Sciences

Tuesday 2 June 12.00 – 14.00

The QuantIC programme is delivering paradigm-shifting quantum imaging systems to our innovation partners. Biomedical imaging is an area where QuantIC seeks to expand its contributions. These will primarily be in through body imaging and microscopy. There is strong industry interest in both fluorescence and super-resolution microscopy to improve performance utilising SPAD arrays and other components. This webinar will showcase the progress made in this area to date.

Computational Methods

Wednesday 3 June 12.00 – 14.00

The role and impact of computational imaging and machine learning in quantum imaging systems is growing significantly. Our initial focus will be on a Bayesian framework coupled with machine learning methods to develop these methods in partnership with the quantum sensors to make integrated systems where the overall performance is optimised for the limitations and advantages that quantum derived data presents.


Thursday 4 June 12.00 – 14.00

Imaging through complex media such as fog, rain and snow are some of the most topical challenges in the autonomous vehicles and assisted drivers’ landscape. This webinar will discuss how we are working with end users and technology providers, to deliver system demonstrators combining optimisation of detector technology, image reconstruction for low-photon and low-cost visible and infrared LIDAR.

Security and Sensors

Friday 5 June 12.00 – 14.00

Quantum phenomena will have impact in broad areas of security and sensors. We are developing quantum LIDAR, radar and covert imaging systems and developing UK capability for near IR SPADs and SPAD arrays for security and defence. Additionally, we continue to develop monitoring systems for secure infrastructure e.g. airports, rail stations, utilising different wavelengths. This session will showcase the latest demonstrator capabilities.
