Quantum diagnostic and imaging systems

Sensors are ubiquitous in modern technology; they are used to examine our bodies, our local environments, the galaxy, and beyond. This program seeks to exploit quantum mechanics to engineer new probes, sensors and techniques that enhance capabilities across a range of applications, ranging from diagnosis and detection in medical imaging to the accuracy of navigation.

This program will deliver deployable prototypes of quantum-enabled sensing and imaging technologies, for example gyroscopes built from superfluid circuits or hyper-polarised MRI for the early detection of diseased tissue states. 

Within the quantum-enabled diagnostics and imaging program, our research projects include: 

  • Superfluid quantum circuitry
  • Precision clocks and oscillators
  • Quantum optomechanics
  • Hyperpolarised MRI for enhanced bio-imaging
  • Nanodiamond sensors with large-scale entanglement
