In our first year of operation we have made some important first steps to realise this vision, described in more detail in this document. Experiments at The University of Queensland have shown how to control the motion of macroscopic silica mechanical resonators with light. EQuS CIs at Macquarie University, in collaboration with our Partner investigators in Germany, have shown how to exploit the quantum properties of defects in diamond to engineer a new kind of magnetometer. Theoretical work involving collaborations across the Centre have pointed the way to a new form of quantum matter capable of processing information.
The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS) acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders past and present.
