Quantum Technology Applications

Exploiting the quantised nature of matter enables a range of exciting new technologies, such as quantum computing, communication, new forms of cryptography and sensing. If you have seen or read about a quantum computer it has probably been made from our technologies. Whether you need to cool your system to milli-Kelvin temperatures, observe the quantum state of trapped cold ions or make and characterise low dimensional structures such as quantum dots and nanowires, our solutions enable you to achieve your goals.
