To manipulate the quantum world, we must first understand the fundamental principles of complex multicomponent quantum devices and the instrumentation that measures and governs their operation.
This program develops tools and design approaches that will enable us to piece together complex quantum machines out of their disparate components. It aims to pioneer a new generation of instruments tailored to the demanding requirements of quantum sciences, from precision clocks, oscillators, and time-bases, to high-speed cryogenic electronics. In doing this, our researchers will also apply the world-class advances, made through the first iteration of the centre (2011-2017), to a regime of large-scale quantum machines.
Within the quantum engines and instruments program, our research projects include:
