The UK Quantum Showcase demonstrates why others around the world are seeking to copy the UK’s quantum technology approach. It’s little surprise that the UK government is providing additional funding of £315m over the next 5 years. The 2018 UK National Quantum Technology Showcase took place in the prestigious QEII ... read more

QUES2T aims to develop practical quantum technologies using solid-state components such as silicon chips, superconducting circuits, and diamond-based devices. It is a partnership led by UCLQ, with Universities of Cambridge, Oxford and Cardiff as academic partners along with 13 commercial partners.
The majority of the funding - £8.5m - will be invested in new equipment for QUES2T. This will include state-of-the-art micro- and nano-fabrication tools for quantum devices and integrated circuits, as well as advanced measurement 'test-beds' operating down to temperatures a few thousandths of a degree above absolute zero.
