Welcome to EQUS

EQUS is the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems.  Our mission is to engineer the quantum future by building quantum machines that harness the quantum world for practical applications.

Quantum technology is here. It’s used in smart phones, medical imaging, manufacturing and many more places. But today’s technology captures only a small fraction of the potential of quantum physics. New developments in research and engineering mean a new generation of technologies.

Key areas are quantum sensing, quantum communication and quantum computing.

We’re solving the most challenging research problems at the interface of basic quantum physics and engineering, working with partners in industry to translate our discoveries into practical applications and devices, and training a new generation of scientists in cutting-edge research, innovation and entrepreneurialism.
