Quantum-enabled diagnostics and imaging

Quantum diagnostic and imaging systems

Sensors are ubiquitous in modern technology, enabling examination of human bodies, the environment, galaxies and more. This program uses quantum mechanics to engineer new probes, sensors and techniques to enhance capabilities across a range of applications, including medical imaging and 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
