Scientific excellence and international research leadership are the foundations on which QuantIC has built its industry-facing programme.
Quantum is an enabling technology underpinning sensing and imaging developments in areas spanning: healthcare, defence and security, autonomous vehicles and consumer electronics. QuantIC has made inroads into the development of a quantum supply chain that will enable further investment in these sectors. The Hub also partners with users to develop a new generation of ‘quantum-inside’ and ‘quantum-inspired’ cameras delivering information-rich images that are inaccessible to current technologies and to bring those cameras to market.
Looking to the future
We engage with industry to lead the quantum imaging research agenda by introducing new partners and adding new technology demonstrators to our research portfolio, ensuring paradigm-changing innovation that will transform imaging in tomorrow’s society.
As we continue build upon our portfolio, QuantIC is focused on revolutionary research aligned to the following:
Seeing through Obscuration: Central to many of our demonstrators including a) LIDAR systems to image through fog and smoke, and b) combining spatial and temporal inversion to image deep in tissue.
Seeing with Quantum Entanglement: To overcome classical resolution and noise limits and create new modalities for covert imaging.
Seeing at Extreme Wavelengths: The thrust of much of our detector development programme and also relies upon wavelength transformation through nonlinear materials including detection free measurement of imaging and gases.
Our technologies can address user challenges in the following sectors:
