Quantum sensors and computation

Quantum atomic particle
Quantum sensing

Our expertise is in the design, fabrication and analysis of materials and devices for quantum technology. We take inherent properties of quantum states and extend their performance capabilities in fields such as sensing, metrology, communications, computing and simulation, beyond the limit of current technologies.

Hear from Professor Lloyd Hollenberg on his research in quantum technologies.

The leading edge in Quantum technologies

We’re enabling quantum sensing and imaging technology to underpin autonomous systems development. We have also been involved in the development of miniature, highly sensitive sensors for detection of electromagnetic fields, chemicals, biological agents and imaging.

Our capabilities include:

  • Quantum material modelling
  • Detection measurement and control of quantum states
  • Nanoscale to macroscale device architectures, fabrication and testing
  • Computing and information processing applications
  • Quantum electronics (including dots and arrays)
  • Quantum probes and sensing
  • Quantum optics and imaging
  • Quantum electrodynamics.

Case study: Development of miniature, highly sensitive sensors for detection of electromagnetic fields, chemicals, biological agents and imaging

Quantum Technologies works to provide precise information faster and improve the performance of autonomous systems operating in complex and contested environments.

Research leader Professor Lloyd Hollenberg and his team have developed advanced sensing and imaging platforms based on long-lived spin-qubits in diamond. They have also perfected diamond-based, magnetometry and imaging at room temperature. This enabling them to deliver room-temperature nano/micro-scale bio-chemical detection, electronic diagnostics and thermal bio-imaging.
