In the wider quantum technology sector common underlying technologies are being developed for an increasingly wide variety of applications. New products are already at market and more are set to follow. Innovative leaders are setting an example of how involvement here is a force multiplier for their wider ambitions. The...
QuantIC is the UK Quantum Technology Hub in Quantum Enhanced Imaging and brings together more than 120 full time researchers from the Universities of Glasgow, Bristol, Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt, Warwick, Oxford and Strathclyde and over 30 industry partners in a collaborative venture to revolutionise imaging across industrial, scientific and consumer markets.
Established in December 2014, we are one of four quantum technology hubs that are part of the UK Government’s £270m National Quantum Technology Programme announced in November 2014 and are funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) set up to exploit the potential of quantum science and develop a range of emerging technologies with the potential to benefit the UK.
Our vision is to pioneer a family of multidimensional cameras operating across a range of wavelengths, time- scales, length-scales, creating a new industrial landscape for imaging systems and their applications in the UK. Collaboration is at the centre of everything and we have a £4M Partnership Resource Fund designed to accelerate technology uptake by industry by supporting industry-led projects and two-way staff secondments. We also have a dedicated innovation space which has been funded by the Scottish Funding Council where companies can work alongside our researchers to develop new technology prototypes.
