Delivering Quantum Technologies
A new centre for doctoral training in Delivering Quantum Technologies is one of three further UCL CDTs (in addition to the seven funded in November) which has secured EPSRC funding in an announcement today by Minster David Willets. The new CDT is lead by Professor Andrew Fisher from UCL Physics and Astronomy but involves a number of academics from UCL EEE including Professor Sir Michael Pepper, Dr Paul Warburton, Dr John Morton, Dr Ed Romans, Dr Neil Curson and Dr Tony Kenyon.
Quantum technologies involve the control and manipulation of quantum states to achieve results not possible with classical matter; they promise a transformation of measurement, communication and computation. The highly-skilled researchers who will be the future leaders in this field must be equipped to function in a complex research and engineering landscape where quantum physics meets cryptography, complexity and information theory, devices, materials, software and hardware engineering. UCL's CDT in Delivering Quantum Technologies brings together a team of almost forty academic experts with key players from commerce and government and a network of international partner institutes to train those research leaders.
